Today on the blog I will be tackling what my travel essentials are! I’ll be going to Florida for a couple of days at the end of the week and I couldn’t be more excited. My younger sister is currently living in Orlando and I went to school in Miami (go Canes!) so I will be dividing my time there between both cities. Hopefully, I’ll be doing so efficiently and wisely…
Now let’s get to it!
1.Headphones – Headphones are basically a given, which is why I’m listing them first. I never go anywhere without them! Noise-cancelling headphones would be perfect for long flights; wireless ones will not work for in-plane movies so keep that in mind.
2. Reading Material – I’ve always preferred reading and writing to watching movies or listening to music on flights. I usually bring a book, magazines, or a travel journal and a pen for when the inspiration hits. Paperbacks are usually lighter and easier to carry around. E-books and audiobooks are also great options if those are your preferred formats!
3. Healthy Snacks – Or unhealthy ones, or both. The point is, bringing your own packaged snacks will undoubtedly save you money. Beverages will be removed at security checkpoints so leave those behind, as well as some fruit and vegetables depending on where you’re traveling.
4. Carry On Bag – I have come to believe that a quality carry on bag is a great investment; they make traveling a whole lot easier. They come in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes to fit every taste out there — I prefer backpacks because they balance out weight evenly and are easy on my back.
5. Camera – This one is without a doubt a very personal preference. I rarely travel without some sort of camera, whether it be a DSLR or a polaroid. I usually just stick to one lens when it comes to the DSLR to keep things light.
Until next time,
