Going abroad is one of the most exciting moments in my life. From starting to prepare luggage , entering the plane and starting the journey, it never gets old no matter if its work or leisure.
However it still can be stressful and that is a standard feeling most ladies would identify with. Between knowing if the lip gloss is too big to carry with you or if your nail polish is going to pop all over, if you have put your passport and if you charged your mobile it can be pretty much a headache till you get to check in!
Current Travel Hand Bag of choice
Through the years you learn to travel lighter and more comfortably so I thought I would list down what I will always carry with me. Usually my bag will be pretty large but light so I can fit my larger items. So this is the usual content:
Phone & Headphones
Phone Charger -having it with you rather then your luggage is safer for the worst case scenario.
Small make up bag. Lip Balm – Travel Size body cream – wet wipes -tissues – hair pins – rubber band – face powder – travel kabuki brush – sample size perfume
Passport – Tucked into one of the internal pockets with your phone as these are the bare emergency essentials.
Main Purse – with your credit cards and the currency money of your destination.
Coin Purse – for your local money so they do not get mixed up
Emergency numbers in case of stolen credit card or misplaced , police or hospital numbers
Small note pad
Camera & Camera USB charger
Confirmation print outs in a clear plastic folder.
Occasionally will carry my tablet with me, however I try and turn off as much as possible from checking emails and browsing so I can enjoy a trip properly.
Also a large scarf is an essential for me, usually the plane is pretty cold no matter if you are travelling in summer. This can be a thin silk scarf however I find it pretty comforting on a flight.
The above might seem pretty basic, however there is everything I can possibly need for the travel time and also if something should happen ; there is a certain amount of precaution taken with all the confirmations available.
Hope this was helpful for your next trip. In a month or so I will give you a peak at my Travel with a hand luggage ONLY challenge for a 3 night trip in Europe.
