Then there’s me… I print my boarding pass as soon as I’m able to, pack ahead of time and try to squeeze in absolutely anything I might need in between my carryon and checked bag. And while I may not always get around to make the almond milk with the nuts I have stashed away (😂), I do end up using 98% of what I pack. Here’s what’s most important to me:
+ books: I’m bringing the two books I’m reading right now. Especially because Italy is such a long flight, I need something to entertain me
+ @shaynas.kitchen Morning Ritual matcha and set: I make matchas almost every time on planes. People stare because I’m full on whisking green powder in the middle of row 23B but I love how it assists my energy and mood during long travel days.
+ @bottleandstone 300/600 tinctures and body salve: I take the 300mg CBD during the day and the 600mg before a red eye. I’m able to sleep nearly the whole way when I take the 600 and it’s sooo helpful. I always always always bring the body salve because I get so sore on planes and my scoliosis tends to get a little inflamed with the upright position of the seats. I’ll just rub a bit on my lower back and my shoulders.
+ vitamins: storing in individual bags makes it more convenient. I know what they are but you could label them if you’d like!
+ mini tripod: I have a lot of camera equipment in my checked bag too! Always trying to get content to be able to share with you guys as it’s so fun to be able to partake in these experiences together.
+ compression socks: I always make sure to drink a ton of water and wear these socks while traveling. If you’ve ever left a plane with swollen ankles, this is your sign to pick these up!
+ also, not shown but SNACKS! This trip I’m making my Date Energy Bites and Blueberry Muffins!
+ blue light glasses, hand sanitizer, masks, computer, etc.
If you’d like me to show you an unpacking of my checked suitcase when I arrive, I’ll be sure to! I know some of you are interested in my fashion and while I don’t really show much of that on here now, I’d be happy to start if you want 👇🏻🧡
