Must have things to make traveling the most enjoyable!
With all of our traveling, no matter if it’s by car or by plane, we always have these things. Each one of them has helped make our travels more enjoyable.
Of course, you need snacks! Roadtrip and plane snacks are very different 🙂 On the plane, we make sure to have Justin’s Nut Butter packets! These are perfect to put on an apple while waiting to board your plane. Or a quick snack straight from the pack! These are sooo yummy!
Cliff Bars are another must when traveling when it comes to snacks! Perfect snacks for hiking or when you are getting hangry!
When we are on road trips, it’s a little easier and necessary to indulge. We love to much on Gas Station Snacks like Gardetos for Justin and Cheetos for me! We usually get some kind of candy too when we stop for gas!
REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLE & COFFEE MUG
We always take our water bottles EVERYWHERE! As we are trying really hard to limit our plastic use. Plus, there are places to fill them up EVERYWHERE!
Justin has a Klean Kanteen Water Bottle while I have A Hydro Flask Lightweight one! While we both have a RTIC Coffee Tumbler, but I prefer my CreatedCo travel mug. that we use to fill up on coffee at any shop and also use it for cocktails while camping.
If you do not use these, you are packing all wrong! Packing Cubes have helped us to never have to check a bag unless you absolutely have to! You can pack so much more when you use these!
Also, when your bag has to be checked when going through security, your stuff won’t be EVERYWHERE! I love them so much because I can keep everything organized, pants, shirts, underwear, etc.
Yes, your phone is OK – but have a camera just in case you want to blow up those images! We are running out of wall space for our images!
PORTABLE PHONE CHARGER
Every airport has chargers, but they are sometimes aren’t any open ports, so these phone banks come in handy! Especially when you are on the plane and you want to watch your favorite movie!
They are also great while camping and you want to charge your speaker or phone to play some music while cooking dinner! (always make sure it’s not too loud to annoy your camping neighbors and nearby wildlife!)
These are a must to listen to your favorite music, podcast or watching a movie on the plane! Plus, they are A LOT smaller and easier to pack then noise-canceling headphones!
EYE MASK & EARPLUGS
I always wear these while sleeping as it helps me sleep better! But, I also bring extras for Justin on the plane! Make sure to bring these for the plane if you want to sleep! You never know when you’ll have a noisy neighbor or unhappy baby.
I do not take any trip without this baby! It’s filled with tickets, maps, receipts, snapshots and run down of where we went on each trip. I love to read through this sometimes to relive our adventures. I do this so I can write a blog when I come back. Also, so if we go back we know where we went if we want to go again.
We also get asked a lot where we’ve gone, what we ate and such. So this way we can actually tell people.
Yes, I know I spelled adventures wrong – didn’t spell check before I printed 🙂
