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!
- 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.
- Clothing, Underwear, Bras, & Socks. ‘Cause duhhh.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- Things To Do. This usually includes a book, my phone, earbuds, maybe my laptop, and chargers.
- 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.
- 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.
- Snacks. To satisfy random hunger urges. Try to pick healthier snacks since you’re bound to eat unhealthy on vacation.
- 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.
