“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life”
Are you preparing to pack your carry on for your next travel trip? This is an important decision and it’s vital that the right things are in your bag. Otherwise, it can leave you stuck when the unexpected does occur on your vacation. After all, the Boy Scout motto is “Be Prepared” for a reason!
Here are the key items we recommend that you do include.
Glasses Or Shades
First, you need to make sure that if you wear glasses that you do have a pair in your carryon luggage. If you’re reading between the lines here then yes this does mean that you should have another pair in your case. Ultimately, this means that if you lose one then you also have a spare that you can fall back upon. You can find various designer glasses online at prices that anyone will be able to afford. You also need to include a great pair of shades. The reason for this should be obvious. It’s one of the first things that you’re definitely going to need once you reach your tropical destination.
It is worth investing a few items of clothing into your carry-on rather than packing it all into your main luggage. If you focus only on your main luggage, then you are going to be completely helpless if this gets lost. That happens a lot more than most people realize and hundreds of thousands of pieces of luggage get lost every year. While these are typically recovered eventually, it could still mean that you need to spend a solid amount of time without the clothing that you require at your chosen destination.
You definitely want to make sure that you do pack a toothbrush in your carry-on. If you have a tooth-brush, it can save you from an embarrassing situation if your plane gets delayed or stuck at another airport. It can also help ensure that you do have minty-fresh breath when you start your holiday and do make the right impression with any strangers that you connect with. You might think that you need an electric toothbrush but a more typical type will do the trick here.
Finally, you do need to make sure that you are packing in a quality pair of headphones or earphones. A crucial mistake is buying these at the airport. If you do this, you’ll either end up with a cheap pair that will break in a matter of days or hours or an overpriced set. Neither will be a great choice. You also need headphones to make an airport or plane more memorable. Anyone who has been on a plane with a screaming baby will know how vital a great pair of headphones can be. It’s worth exploring reviews from several brands before you settle on the final choice. It’s also worth pointing out that you shouldn’t invest in a high tech pair. Doing so could leave you unable to use them at crucial points of your journey. Bluetooth isn’t an option when you’re thousands of miles up in the air.
