- Flights require a particular set of items if you want to remain comfortable and relaxed.
- The more youtravel, the more you learn what to pack - and what to leave behind.
- Author Natalia Lusinski has taken 15 flights in the past year, and these are the items she never travels without.
As someone who has taken 15 flights in the last year, there are several items that are must-haves when traveling. Of course, it's a learn-by-doing process, but I've finally distilled my carry-on bag to a compact assortment of essentials.
Each time I step foot on an airplane, I bring with me what I like to call my "plane kit." The kit is an assortment of smaller items grouped together in a makeup bag that I take from flight to flight. This way, I don't have to keep repacking my flight essentials and am sure that everything I need is in one, easily accessible place.
Here are 17 items I'd never travelwithout.
1. A comfortable hoodie
Planes often seem to be too hot or too cold. A hoodie can keep you warm if your airplane is uncomfortably cool, and if not, you can use the hoodie as a cushion to sit on, a germ barrier between you and the headrest, or a pillow.
Nothing's worse than wanting to take a nap on a flight, only to realize there's a crying baby behind you. Maybe you want to catch up on work and need to drown out ambient noise. Whatever the case may be,travelingwith earplugs is a must.
