“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm, and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” –Jawaharlal Nehru.
It can be hard to enjoy fully the beauty, charm, and adventure that travel provides after three plane rides and a long journey through unknown streets with luggage. We like to pack some of our favorite things, so when we arrive at any new destination, we can feel at home.
Bringing your favorite adult beverage with you or ordering it when you arrive at your destination makes traveling a bit easier. Our favorite is Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Champagne Insulate Bottle Cozy Sleeve 750ml Bottle. Feeling dehydrated? Consider packing some coconut water.
You’ll need something to capture the new memories you’re making while abroad. Camera phones are great, and DSLRs are becoming popular, but lovers of vintage items are also traveling with cameras that print out their shots instantly on film. Our favorite is the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera (Pink) and here is the film for it Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Film, 10 Sheets x 5 packs.
And of course, you will want to look your best in said photos, and for us, that means minimal makeup. We love packing a lipstick because it is small, lightweight and can be worn regardless of the weather. Our favorite is the Christian Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick No 756 Fireworks for Women, 0.12 Ounce.
Travel long enough and you’ll run into the folks who don’t believe in deodorant, perfume, or scented lotion. While we don’t travel with too many fragrances, we do make sure to smell pleasant since we are sharing planes, trains, and automobiles with other humans.
We love the light, fresh floral scent of the Christian Dior Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet Eau De Toilette Spray for Women, 3.4 Ounce.
Once we started our road trip from Florida to California we needed a perfect summer hat, and love this Scala Women’s Cotton Big Brim Hat, Black, One-Size. It comes in several colors.
