As a frequent traveler there are certain items I need when traveling. It has taken me a few years, but I have it down to a science. My toiletries are always packed and ready to go, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few things that I should add to my travel repertoire.
Tumi Alpha 2 International Expandable Four Wheeled Carry-On. I’m a huge fan of Tumi suitcases. My current carry-on has been to four continents and it’s just getting started. I really want a four wheel suitcase and all I can think about this Tumi one. Tumi makes quality luggage and this one has my heart beating.
Flight 001 Spacepak. I have never used a Spacepak, but my friend Carol swears by them. On my trip to California next year I’m going to give them a go. We will see how it goes.
Gigi New York Jessica Zipper Tote. I go through travel totes often. I need it to hold my MacAir, iPad, Kindle, magazines, wallet, cosmetic case, and other items. I usually have a tote that is open, but this Gigi New York tote has a zipper on top which will protect my belongings.
Kindle Voyage. And speaking of my Kindle, I never leave home without it. I love real books. I do, but for traveling and saving my back and shoulders I go electronic. My chiropractor and acupuncturist thanks me too. I usually pack one real book in my carry-on. If I’m traveling over 10 days I will pack books in a checked bag that I don’t plan on bringing back home.
Moleskin Passions Travel Journal. I love recording my thoughts and keeping track of my travels. A travel journal allows me to save receipts, make notes of restaurants, and things that I would normally miss. I also like putting pen to paper. I don’t have to worry about accidentally deleting a note.
Sol Republic Punk Speaker. I listen to music and podcasts when traveling and this speaker allows me to not be tied down to my phone or iPod. It’s wireless Bluetooth syncs with my computer or phone and I can dance and rock out in my hotel room.
FRENDS Ella Earbuds. Call me old school, but I don’t like headphones. They hurt my ears and I have tried on them all. I stick to good earbuds that also double as a microphone. They are also gorgeous as well.
