I am finally back in Australia after my little adventure around the Hawaiian islands! In the spirit of travelling I thought it appropriate to put together a few of my essentials for travelling, and in particular what to bring in your carry on, to help any budding travellers out there!
- eye mask
- fan (if you’re going to a warmer climate like I am)
- *a jumper or blanket can also be packed when travelling to a colder climate.
There’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable on a long boring plane ride! Be kind to yourself and gather all the comfortable clothing you can find! I advise to catch up on some z’s, nothing passes the time better!
- travel journal
It’s a must to come prepared with something to do! Bring your favourite magazine, a romantic novel and you’re set! The plane ride home is the perfect time to touch up and finalise your travel journal also.
- Ipod & Charger
- Mobile Phone & Charger (I advise to buy a prepaid sim card once you reach your destination to beat hefty roaming charges)
- Camera & Charger
- Camera Case
- Foreign Adapter
My camera ventures everywhere with me and can even be useful to take photos of the city below once up in the air. A soundtrack makes the plane ride somewhat bearable, therefore I strongly advise an iPod! I am somewhat reliant on my electronic items so remembering chargers is a must!
Triple check for your passport, it is definitely the most important thing on your list! The second important is your purse: check for all ID and money.
- wet wipes
- hand cream
- cocoa butter
- hand sanitizer
- blemish concealer
- moisturizing lip gloss
Often a long flight can leave you feeling drained and in desperate need of freshening up! Just make sure to check the requirements of liquid carry on before packing!
I hope this helped all you adventurers out there, safe travels and stay posted for some more travelling posts on my trip!
