iPhone Charging Case – My iPhone charging case keeps my juiced up while I’m traveling and using my phone all day to navigate, shoot content, etc.
Trtl Neck Pillow – This is the only neck pillow that helps me get some sleep on the plane. It wraps around your neck and supports your head so that you don’t do the head bob as you doze off, jerking yourself back awake. Do you look kinda silly wearing it? Yes. Is it worth it for some sleep on a long haul flight? Absolutely.
SPF Face Moisturizer: One of the quickest ways to age is not using sun protection! I never leave the house without applying a moisturizer with at least SPF 15 in it! This will prevent wrinkles, sun spots, melasma, melanoma, and leathery skin.
Cell Phone Tripod: I often record or take photos with my phone while on the go! A lightweight phone tripod is a must-have for situations when I need to record by myself on my solo travels.

Brita Filtered Water Bottle – I hate trying to buy bottled water when I’m traveling. Sometimes it can be so expensive! So I bought this water bottle that has a filter in it and it’s a lifesaver when you’re trying to stay hydrated.
Vera Bradley Travel Pillow/Blanket (it’s a 2-in-1) – A friend gifted me this one year and I thought I’d never use but Lord was I wrong! It looks like a pillow but you can unzip and turn it into a blanket. I love it when I’m cold on a long flight or need a more comfortable pillow when I’m sleeping at night.
Laundry Travel Kit – I bring these on every long international trip! This way you pack less and can still have clean clothes that you wash in a sink or bathtub.
Wireless Headphones – On a flight, I can’t often sleep due to the noise and the movement, so I always have to have music playing. My wireless headphones are my go-to so that I don’t have to worry about having the cord snagged on anything or anyone around me.
Power Cord Adapter – I’ve been traveling internationally for years, and there’s nothing worse than getting to a location and you can’t plug in your electronics, especially my camera. I have a power cord adapter that adapts to every possible plug in any country.
Hand Sanitizer – It’s something so easy, but something I forget about often! It just makes it so convenient being in a new area and doing everything to prevent getting sick.
Air sealed bags – If you’re on a long trip and want to be able to pack the most, air sealed bags help you to fit more into a space. These are especially helpful if you plan on traveling with only a carryon!
Portable Phone Charger – I’ve been stranded before (many years ago) because my phone died… never again! I bought a charger off Amazon for under $50 that can charge my phone 5 times over without being charged itself.
Language Translating Device – Especially for traveling alone abroad to a country where the language spoken is not your own, I love to bring along a language translating device, that way you can still converse with people and get around without being hindered by a language barrier.
