Check the following must bring travel essentials to pack on your carry-on bag and you’ll be ready for anything and your trip will will be hassle free! So what are you waiting for, check them out!
Make sure to bring pen wherever you go, there are chances that you are required to fill out some forms while you’re in your trip. So to avoid getting nasty looks as you ask everyone around you for a pen, make sure to carry one for yourself.
Choose the clothing that you’ll pack wisely! Sweater is a must especially when you’re travelling in a country which has colder weather, that’s why you definitely need to pack an extra sweater for when you reach your destination, and it’ll also come in handy if the plane is cold.
3. SPARE CLOTHES/BATHING SUIT
You’ll never know what will happen while you are on your trip, that’s why it’s really good to bring spare clothes, but how many should you exactly pack? Two extra t-shirt and three bottoms, (note:this include short or slacks) will be enough. When it comes on your underwear, make sure to pack at least six to ten pairs (for girls) and for boys you can just bring 3 underwear. Don’t forget to bring bathing suit too for unexpected swimming or beach getaway! It won’t take a lot of space on your carry-on bag because they’re just small and light weight.
4. SMALL BLANKET
Bringing small blanket is good for those who travel with their kids, this is to ensure that they’re warm and cozy. It’s also good for you because planes can get chilly, if you’re lucky, they may even be cozy enough to fall asleep.
5. EYE MASK/EARPLUGS
If you are hoping to get a little shut eye on your flight, make it easier for yourself by bring an eye mask and earplugs. The more comfortable you are the better chance you have of falling asleep.
6. HAND SANITIZER, WIPES AND DEODORANT
Germs are everywhere, so be prepared. You can put sanitizer on a small bottle or bring a small packet of antibacterial wipes on the plane so you can wipe down the tray table, in that way if you ever find yourself without your luggage, you will be relieved to know you still have your own toiletries on your carry-on bag.
7. MINI FIRST AID KIT
This is the most important essentials that you should bring. This can be used for unexpected bumps and bruises. Make sure to include your personal medication you might need on your trip, some pain-relievers and band-aids.
Playing cards is a good one that can provide entertainment on a long flight, especially if you’re with your family or friends. It doesn’t
require batteries as well!
DON’T pack smelly or odorous foods. Tuna fish? 🙂 Airplanes are small places and due to flying people often feel nauseated. Odors do not help this situation. Instead you can bring dried fruits, granola or chocolate bars, grain salads and sandwiches on hearty bread. Whatever you pack, be considerate of your fellow passengers and don’t pack foods that have a strong odor, so leave the durian and kimchi at home.
Just a side note, when you go to an airport with your food, you are going through a security check not a customs check, so feel free to bring what you want and can finish by time you land.
10. EMPTY WATER BOTTLE
You can’t bring a bottle of water through the security checkpoint in the airport, but you can bring an empty bottle through the checkpoint and then fill it up once you’re through security. Another thing is…. water usually costs a lot more at airports. That’s why the best way to cheat the system is to bring an empty water bottle! Don’t forget yours!
