Long Travel Hours - The ESSENTIALS
Do you possess the super power of wanderlust but lack the super power of going through the long travel hours gracefully?
Well, you can curb some of the blues with some must have essentials for the long transit and flight hours!
First you'll need a cute carry on to take along.
Stay fashionable with this carry on by Mulberry. KANGA LOVES
Take a few minutes to pack!
The following essentials are good to pass the time and keep you entertained! Before you know it, your pilot will be putting on the seat belt sign for landing.
A good scarf is necessary for any trip. When it gets a bit chilly you can keep warm and stay fashionable too! Forgot your pillow at home? Bundle your scarf up and.. voila!
FUN TIP: Drench your scarf with your favourite perfume! This will give you a whiff of home and will keep you comfortable!
Earphones? Well of course! Listen to some music to pass the time! If the average song lasts about 4 mins, then imagine how much time will pass-by smoothly when you're listening to your favourite albums!
Books, novels, journals, magazines.. all essential for those long travel hours! Grab reading material focused on things you are interested in. Maybe get material that has information about your travel destination? Arrive prepared to be one with the locals!
Grab your favourite snacks before you take off on your journey. Get only what you absolutely love! This is no time to "try something new!" The worst thing is having a bunch of snacks that taste horrible on your long journey!
Get a generous wallet or large purse to house your foreign currency. Make sure you have a variety of notes. Maybe for some in-flight shopping or an unexpected buy during and/or upon arrival. You can also use it to house your passport, other IDs, bank cards and travel documents.
Freshen up before your journey starts! You will feel fresh and comfortable for hours. Give it a go again mid-way. There is nothing like feeling fresh and rested DURING your journey. You do not want to arrive looking and feeling a hot mess!
If you are a tech freak, then you might want to pack more than just your earpiece! If you are lucky and you do not have "travel-attention-deficit-disorder," then having your laptop or ipad with you is perfect. Watch your favourite movie, finish up your homework or catch up with the office.
