I stuck with Pug, SCSS, and JS for the itinerary challenge because I'm really starting to like this combo. There's so much left for me to learn here so I'm not quite ready to switch it up. There's nothing too special about the Pug code here, but I did try a few fun things with the SCSS and JS.

I was able to bring most of it over and change some of it to get the hover borders (mostly) working....

I used plain JavaScript/jQuery for this pen, but I did try to add in some new features I hadn't tried before. For example, I used jQuery's slideToggle() when someone click's on an icon, I created a method to append li's to a list based on a given array, and I concatenated two arrays to compute a random value from a combined array. ...
