Fifteen Small Essential Items That Make All the Difference When TravelingNovember 6, 2019
Keeping space optimal when you are traveling is a true art form. How do you pack what you need and keep it light? The idea is to find the perfect travel items that are small, lightweight, well-made and that serve your purposes. This is important to everyone. It is especially important for women who have a lot more things that they need and also to keep carry bags nice and light. The ideal bag is one that you can carry yourself without having to ask help from others. You want to be able to pick up your bag at a moment’s notice and move quickly if needed when traveling.
Here are fifteen fantastic small items to travel with:
Small Power Camera – one with high-resolution photos and 1080p video
Mesh packing cubes to organize everything
Sea Bands- fantastic on bumpy air travel and swimming in the sea to prevent nausea
Small Hair Dryer- although many hotels have hair dryers, some do not and it really depends on where you are staying. A small dryer not only dries your hair, but any items you wash by hand.
Mini Travel Alarm Clock
Mosquito Natural Wipes that work without Deet
Travel Money belt undercover- These slim, cotton with zipper belts hold your money and passport underneath your clothing. They come in a couple of styles, one with elastic waist or hook on your belt loop style.
Guys Hidden Money Belt- this is a regular guys belt with a zipper on the inside of the belt to store some dollars. It’s a good place to stash some large bills that are not in your wallet. Women can wear these too, but they come in men’s style.
Rubber Sink Stopper- Guess what? Many hotels and accommodations have no sink stoppers, they take them out, so if you need to fill up the sink with water to wash clothes, you will need a handy little rubber stopper.
Travel Laundry Soap sleeves- super slim and they get your clothes clean.
Sleep travel mask and ear plugs- the sleep mask should be soft, comfortable and block light. What a difference to help you get some good shut-eye. Ear plugs? Well, you never know how noisy a hotel gets until you stay in lots of different places. It can get really noisy!
No Jet Lag tablets- they are natural and homeopathic. Anything that offsets jet lag feeling is fantastic. Of course, drink lots of water to stay hydrated on the plane, and it’s a good idea to avoid alcohol while flying. If you must have a drink, add that extra glass of water.
Flight nasal spray- homeopathic and really helps prevent airline colds with people sneezing on the planes. It’s also great to use at home
Adapter plugs for various parts of the world depending on your destination.
Hot Water Bottle- this is totally optional, but it’s great to keep you warm and also soothing for aches and pains. Plus it lays flat in your suitcase or side panel of your bag.
