Greetings fabulous readers! I apologize for my absence, last minute I decided to disconnect while on vacation. Although I came home to a blizzard here in MA I got to recharge my batteries, feeling extremely inspired. Brace yourselves for awesome and helpful material! The last post included tips on packing your vacation ensembles, today we will cover what exactly to bring in your carry-on. Let's get to it!
Choosing your carry-on
Most airlines allow you to bring a carry-on bag and a purse. I like to use my Vera Bradley Weekender carry-on, it has an opening on the back of the bag allowing travelers to put the weekended over the handles of your rolling luggage. It also has an adjustable strap for easy carrying once your luggage is checked. This particular bag is in a subtle yet noticeable pattern making it easy to keep tabs on. When deciding on which carry-on bag to take make sure it is easy to use, fits in the over head compartments or under the seat, and fits the carry-on requirements of the airline you are flying with.
This can vary based on the type of trip you are going on, business or leisure. Regardless of the trip it is always wise to pack a spare outfit, a small tube of toothpaste and toothbrush, and any valuables like fine jewelry in case your luggage gets lost. When traveling for business you maybe packing your entire trip attire in your carry-on accompanied with your laptop. I always make sure to keep chargers for my electronics on me to prevent forgotten items. To pass time on your flight bring a book or a couple magazines. Make sure before you leave the house that you have the proper identification like a state issued ID for domestic travel in the United States or a passport for international adventures. Make sure you arrive to the airport 2 hours prior to take off this will give you enough time to check-in your luggage and into your flight, get your boarding pass, and go thru security.
When dressing to travel I like to be comfortable yet put together. I suggest wearing layers to be comfortable on the plane based on your personal preference.
