The Best Travel Accessories:
If you love to travel you have your old standbys that you just won’t, or cannot travel without. Today, I wanted to share my must have travel accessories and why you need to add them to your list as well!
// Cozy Apparel
No matter the mode of transportation you’re taking to get to your destination you have to be comfortable when traveling. A comfy t-shirt, some leggings and a sweatshirt or scarf you can throw over them are key when traveling. I always travel in a t-shirt with a sweater scarf or a cardigan. Snag this vacation appropriate shirt here!
// Comfortable Shoes
Keeping on the theme of comfy clothes, you need some comfortable walking shoes. I’m a huge fan of Toms. They are breathable, comfortable, easy to slip on and they go with everything. I’ve walked all over Europe in these, hiked, and sauntered around the local mall in these all with no issues.
// Sea Bands
Now, I can’t definitively say that these aren’t just placebo effect but they truly helped me out on my last trip. I get so incredibly motion sick on planes that I was willing to try anything. Dramamine works wonders but on a 10 hour plane ride it wears off. The little plastic nubs basically dig into your skin to hit a pressure point that’s supposed to ease nausea. They aren’t uncomfortable to wear but they do leave marks for a while once you take them off so there’s definitely no hiding them.
These little guys have been one of the coolest things i’ve bought for my phone. It clips onto my camera and has a macro, fish eye and a wide angle lens. They take a little bit of playing around with but once you get it down they’re great. Plus, they even come with teeny tiny lens caps to keep dust and fingerprints off.
Okay, okay, this one is super simple. But I really will not travel without a notebook. I like to keep a travel journal when I go places, it really helps me to remember the little moments. And, when you go overseas and you don’t have data on your phone it’s really handy to write down directions to help you out when you can’t get wifi.
To save space in my bag on my most recent trip, I opted to buy a microfiber towel. This thing is awesome. It folds out into a full sized towel and it really soaks up every drop of water. This is the perfect option for when you’re staying at hostiles that don’t provide towels or just if you need to save some space in your bag. Plus, if you tuck this in your carry on it can double as a blanket or a pillow on for your trip.
// Extra Phone Battery
Probably the most important of all the travel accessories mentioned. You need an extra battery for your phone when you’re going to be traveling around. My battery drains like it’s nobody’s business and this has came in handy multiple times. This snaps right onto your phone through the charger port and carries a full charge. The best part for me is that it adds some bulk, but it will still fit in my pocket or tiny wristlet.
And that’s it! Those are my top must have travel accessories. I will not travel without any of them. I’ll be going to Texas on October 1st and i’ve already got all these items gathered so I know not to forget them. Let me know what your best travel accessories are so I know what else to grab for my upcoming trip! Be sure to check out my other travel posts like how to pack 8 days in a carry on.
