Traveling is something I could never grow tired of doing. I always look forward to boarding the plane and exploring a new country or city!
This year my mom is turning the big 6-0, and we're celebrating this milestone in Italy!!
I'm returning to this beautiful country after seven years! Last time I was there was back in 2011, and I didn't get the opportunity to explore the Coast. For this trip, my family is renting a car and we’ee driving from Rome all the way to Positano! Excited doesn't even come close to describing my emotions!
Since I'm no stranger to traveling, I've narrowed down the top must-have items I take with me on a plane.
Airplanes and airports are notoriously known for being extremely cold, no matter your destination.
I like to dress comfortably. Which means flats, hair up and no makeup.
I typically wear either jeans or leggings, and I never board without a jacket or sweater. I made the mistake one time and nearly froze to death!
Now to my backpack items and my airplane must haves for traveling.
Book: My flights are generally over 2 hrs, so it's the perfect opportunity to catch up on some reading.
Snack: Airplane snacks are never healthy, mostly chips and soda. I like to bring an energy bar that will keep me full throughout the flight and will avoid me from falling into temptation.
Earphones: If I’m not in the mood to read, watching a movie in-flight is the best way to pass the time. Unless you want to purchase earphones, I suggest you bring your own.
Glasses: I never wear my contacts when flying. I tend to sleep on the plane, so contacts become uncomfortable and dry up easily.
Facemask: Airplanes are harsh on your skin. A 15 mins mask will leave your face feeling refreshed and hydrated. Plus you’ll be in your seat so no one will see you.
Journal: I like to document my traveling journey whenever I can. Taking 5 mins to write down three things you’re grateful for will start your trip on a positive note.
Cleaning Wipes: Let’s face it, planes are filled with germs. I like to wipe my pull-down tray before I use it and when I finish eating I like to clean my face and hands. Luckily, I carry the Kleenex Germ Removal wipes with me on my trips.
The wipes are free from dyes, alcohol, parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
No harsh chemicals means they are gentle enough for your hands and face.
There are 3 types of Kleenex Wet Wipes - and Target sells them each for only $1.49!
* Gentle Clean (blue pack, 24-ct)
* Germ Removal (orange pack, 20-ct)
* Sensitive (green pack, 20-ct)
Now you can clean your hands, face or body on demand, no sink required. This on-the-go germ removal is perfect for traveling!
