My trip is coming around fast so I’ve started getting my things together to pack and prepare for my time in America. Whilst organising my things I realised that I have several things that are an absolute essential for me to take away with and I simply can’t travel without them.
I do find myself getting bored on long haul flights, I also feel very anxious and I generally feel quite run down and just a bit gross towards the last few hours of the flight. Planes have many germs and being very close to people for so long just makes me a bit drained and a little smelly, not going to lie.
Since this is the case I cannot travel without some hand sanitizer and hydrating must. This may seem unnecessary to most but to me these items just make me feel a bit more refreshed and awake. Every so often I’ll use the hand sanitizer as I’ll be touching the arm rests and other things. I’ll always definitely use this when I’ve been to the toilet and eaten as well. I don’t have a germ phobia but I just find by doing this throughout the flight just makes me feel a bit better when I land. I don’t ever wear makeup on long haul flights either but I’ll use a hydrating mist to make my skin feel more awake and refreshed. I find nothing worse than landing in an airport and instantly feeling dry skin.
I also like to travel with a book, I can get through a book in a few hours and being on a plane for 8+ hours means that I can entertain myself when a new novel. Once I’ve landed I’ll then donate this book to someone else or I’ll pop into a charity shop (if I can find one). I haven’t picked one to take yet but I’ll be sure to instagram it at _bbbbethan.
I also like to travel with snacks, some savoury and some sweets. Plane food isn’t nice at all so if I do have a meal and I don’t like it or find it filling I’ll have snacks available to eat. When I’m in the airport I’ll probably pick up a sandwich, crisps, chewing gum, chocolate and crackers and anything I just fancy.
My final travel necessity is a hoodie/jacket. After a while I do get really cold so I like to have a cosy hoodie to relax me and feel warmer!
