My Favorite Travel Items

A few years ago I noticed that my packing routine needed a fix. I was bringing way too much stuff and needed to condense. I wanted to streamline and keep things organized and color coded. I wanted to be able to reach into my carry-on bag and find my passport, know what packing cube has my tops, and have all my mini/travel size makeup and essentials contained into one TSA approved clear bag. I am a huge fan of packing cubes, I highly recommend them when traveling. I am still on the lookout for the perfect suitcase. I have been using mine for the last decade and has held up very well.
Truth of the matter - travel is not easy, especially packing. Here’s a rule of thumb: If you cannot carry it yourself, don’t bring it. It will make your entire trip much more enjoyable. That’s especially true in Italy, or anywhere in Europe where there tends to be lots of unexpected luggage lifting. Lots of small boutique hotels, and B&Bs do not have lifts or elevators, and at some train stations you will be going up and down stairs to get to your platform. Keep things light, and you will arrive at your destination much more happier. And remember, keep your valuables at home.
Below you will find a few of my favorite must have items that I personally use when traveling. Just click on the photo to purchase.
Remember, keep it simple.
Happy Travels!
