My Top 7 Travel ESSENTIALS

April 28, 2015

Taking the absolute piss out of people wearing horrendous items of clothing on an aeroplane is fun – but it dawned on me that I didn’t really touch on what you SHOULD have on you. I thought I would assist with my Travel Essentials

1 – Reading Material. I always spare a couple minutes of sympathy for my fellow travel-buddies when they get on a plane with nothing to read. Inside their mind is a constant battle of “are we bored enough to read the airline mag yet?” and “this alone time is good to reflect on my journey ahead”. When I travel on a plane/train/donkey, my reading pile be like…

2 – Sleeping Eye-Thingy. The airline ones are rank – keep your eye-sleeper-thingy game strong. Does anyone know what these things are called? *let a girl know in the comments. tenks.
But remember, no matter which one you buy… it will never be as sexual as mine from 1st For Women. So stop trying.

Thanks you amazing things at First For Women!

3 – Comfy Shoes. Flip flop comes from the phrase – “don’t let your feet touch the floor of a backpackers bathroom.” At one time or another… you will need your flippy-flops. Tip – tie them to your backpack when they aren’t on your feet. Makes you look like a legit travel/hippie/soul-searcher.

4 – Neck Pillow… preferably in the shape of a squirrel. Will. Change. Your. Life. Also, it will prevent an awkward situation… you know the one where you wake up on someone else’s shoulder. Drooling. On them. However, if Jared Leto sits next to you – throw the dang pillow away. Eat it if you have to.

You got nuts?

5 – Bail Money. There will be a time when you need that extra hands-on cash. Use only in the case of an Emergency. By emergency I mean – I’m super wasted and need to get a taxi ASAP and I can’t walk to a cash point. I’m that drunk.

6 – Refresh Kit. You are going to smell real bad at some point in your trip. Don’t be a hippie and refuse sanitation aid. Lip balm. Dry shampoo. Face wipes. Sanitizer. Lotion. Deodorant.

7 – Passport. Duh. This is more a reminder to check your EXPIRY DATE. Some countries don’t grant you a landing visa if your passport has less than 6 months remaining. Be clever and CHECK. My sister had to renew her passport in Bangkok. She still cries about it.

So yeah, as always, you are WELCOME!!!
