Top 10 Travel Essentials

Happy Tuesday! I have been so blessed to travel a lot more this year and I have gotten to know my travelling essentials pretty well. Today, I wanted to share those with you and hopefully help you spark your memory on the essentials you need for your upcoming adventures as well!

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar (+ any meds needed). If you didn’t know, I have acid reflux and the one thing that helps control it more than anything is drinking a little apple cider vinegar every single day.
  2. Clothing, Underwear, Bras, & Socks. ‘Cause duhhh.
  3. Travel Sized Toiletries. Whether I am travelling carryon or not, I always pack with travel sized items to save space, to lighten things up, and to only carry what I need. These things usually include my toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, body spray, hairbrush and hair products, razor, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, makeup wipes, moisturizer, and makeup.
  4. Tennis Shoes & Flip Flops. I try to bring a pair of shoes for comfort with a lot of walking and quick shoes, like flip flops.
  5. Wallet, Cash, & ID. Always, always, always bring your wallet, ID, travel information, and medical information cards. Cash is such a good thing to bring too, because not all places take debit or credit and if you’re anything like me, you’ll forget your debit card (true story).
  6. Things To Do. This usually includes a book, my phone, earbuds, maybe my laptop, and chargers.
  7. Gum. Whether I’m road tripping it or flying, I ALWAYS bring gum (specifically mint). Mint gum helps soothe the stomach and freshen the breathe. Sometimes if I ate something too acidic or just had too much food, I’ll pop a piece of gum in my mouth and I won’t have to worry about not feeling great.
  8. Swimsuit. Do you know how disappointing it is showing up to a hotel, finding out there’s a pool, and wanting nothing more but to swim in it, but you forgot your swimsuit? It’s incredibly disappointing. Always. Bring. Your. Swimsuit.
  9. Snacks. To satisfy random hunger urges. Try to pick healthier snacks since you’re bound to eat unhealthy on vacation.
  10. Reusable Water Bottle. I always bring a reusable water bottle on vacation so I never have to worry about buying water bottles. All I have to do is refill them at water stations or by going in the nearest coffee shop. Saves a little money and you’ll always remember what bottle is yours.
