What To Pack On Vacation

The best packing list for every traveler

Travel season is here and I am so excited! In October we are planning a mini weekend outside of Washington D.C. My goal this year is to see the leaves after they change color. We live in Florida, and I had never experienced ‘fall’ until last year with Kyle.

I have collected a list of my travel necessities that I currently can’t go anywhere without. The items that I cannot travel without. The list is a small purse size list guaranteed to make your travels easier. The best way to be sure you never are without an item is to keep a packing list.

P.S. I created a basic packing list for your upcoming travel plans. It’s FREE to print out. You can find it at the bottom of this blog.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

Whenever I travel I like to bring a cheap pair of headphones to watch the in-flight entertainment. Usually the airline we fly hands them out for free for or a small price depending on where you are seated.

Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizer

When finding the right-hand sanitizer I tend to lean more toward an organic brand, or one that is alcohol-free. 

Travel size deodorant

I like to refresh throughout my travel day. Having a travel size deodorant is something I never leave without even when we are not traveling. 

‘Down there’ wipes

I have a refresh routine that I do in the bathroom after the flight. I also shower the day we get in, but usually, we explore the area or grab a bite to eat before I have the opportunity to shower. Out of all of the feminine wipes, these bad boys are my go-to.

Hydrating lip balm

My lips dry out every time I fly. If you like something that has a hint of color and shines as I do, I highly recommend this item. This lip balm by Smith’s Rosebud is the real deal.

A Page Turning Book

A good book makes the travel time pass by. When I travel I like to read and take breaks in between my reading. I can’t read for long periods on planes because I begin to feel a little woozy from looking down. I am currently reading a book written by J.K. Rowlings. Check it out here

Basic Hair Accessories 

I usually wear my hair down every day even when I fly. Every once in those unexpected long travel days sneak up on you. I am always prepared with a stash of hair ties and bobby pins in my purse. The stash is perfect for when ‘i just can’t’ anymore.
