How to pack a perfect Carry-on

November 9, 2017

With the holiday season around the corner we are searching for ideas to make your traveling more enjoyable.  We saw this blog (https://arzotravels.com/packing-guide-carry-must-items) and just had to share it with you. It's definitely something that I would use:

 

 

 

STAY ORGANIZED

 

  • A big handbag and often also a wheeled extra carry-on luggage – for the more sporty ones I recommend a backpack

  • Plastic bag with a zipper for liquids – more eco-friendly and handy if you travel often is this TSA approved clear travel toiletry bag

  • Passports/ID & tickets  (extra big wallet)

  • Pens and a small journal

 

ENTERTAINMENT / TECH GEAR

 

  • I have my  laptop with me whenever I fly, as I can work etc. – new TSA regulations are stricter now, so you are probably not allowed to take your laptop as a carry-on item.

  • A while ago, I thought my tablet is the most useless item I bought in a while – since I can download from Netflix (and thus watch my shows offline) I have found one good argument bringing my tablet with me whenever I travel

  • My phone– without doubt one of my most useful and important (travel) item

  • Pack a camera I love taking shots from my window seat – and since I take valuables with me, this is in my carry-on bag

  • I have to admit, that I still don’t have a kindle, so a “real” book is often an essential

  • What would a flight be without music? If I love one thing more than traveling it is actually listening to music with my iPod

  • Power charger– how long does your phone battery last? Not long? Neither does mine, so this is an essential.

 

COMFORT / CLOTHES

 

  • Neck pillow – my best friend when traveling for more than 4 hours

  • Warm socks which are also stylish

  • I personally do not use a sleeping mask but a must-have for many travelers

  • A big and warm scarf is my absolute must-have (which I can use for different purposes)

  • Flat shoes which can be easily taken off

  • A cardigan which I use occasionally as an extra blanket

  • For long-distance flights, compression socks are a must

 

BEAUTY / STAY FRESH

 

  • Dry shampoo – though I do not use it normally it is perfect after long-distance flights (check size, and choose the small travel size)

  • My favorite hairbrush (especially for longer hair) – or if you have less space take a comb

  • Refreshing towelettes  – though I think they are not eco-friendly sometimes they are just essential and a must.

  • Face cream (which I also use as a hand cream, so I do not have to take another cream)

  • A small cosmetic bag for your makeup

  • Peppermint drops or chewing gums (though I heard chewing gums are not good when you fly, so probably stick to peppermint drops

  • Deodorant – I don’t think, I need to explain this further 

  • Invisibobble hair ties – I hate my hair open when I am in the plane

  • Toothbrush & paste should also be self-explanatory as well as mouthwash

  • I do not wear much makeup normally, rouge &mascara are my lifesavers, though

  • I have dry eyes and so eye drops are a must for me

  • I am normally sick when I fly and always have some tissues with me

 

I will definitely be using this checklist. Hope this helps you too...
