Hello there 🙂
I think I like travel accessories more passionately than the average person, which makes me an authority in this area, right? I run with it. After all, here, here, and here are a few stories I've written about travel accessories, and I'm pretty sure these aren't all. Traveling can be a beast, but it is also necessary, and I do it often, so I've had many opportunities to land on the best travel accessories (with a bit of trial and error, that is).
As you know, luggage space is precious and we shouldn't go through life and waste it on items that don't make our lives easier. I have made some mistakes in travel accessories in my 30 years and it is my duty to share them with you so that you can only travel with the best accessories. Scroll to find out which eight are banned from my suitcase and without which I will not get on a plane.
The hard way during my first trip to Europe, I learned that you have to convert the voltage of your electronics, or that you have to disconnect the electricity in your room and switch off the sockets. , An adapter is simply not enough. You need one that also converts your tension.
Travel toiletries that come in 2 to 3 ounces. Bottles are bulky than you think, especially when you try to pack several of them. The sweet spot is 1 oz., But even better are packages that take up little space and don't leak.
On flights over night and on long flights, a blanket is a small luxury that can make a big difference in the number of sleeping options. I would rather not use the ones offered by the airline and they take up too much space in my hand luggage to bring my own. The solution is a cashmere travel bag that I can wear as a scarf instead of putting it in my pocket.
I've learned that these single compartment travel jewelry cases won't do you much good (unless you like unraveling necklaces). A decorative role offers separation and organization. This tumi is the best.
I definitely have no place for a bulky neck pillow in my hand luggage, and I will never be carefree enough to walk through the terminal with it. But if it's important to you, I recommend this ingenious Amazon find, which can be carried in different ways and rolled up into a compact little bundle.
I think it is very wise to pack something to keep your dirty laundry home for, but laundry bags that contain a lot of fabric and cannot be squeezed are difficult to put in your suitcase. The solution is these large compression bags, which shrink your dirty laundry and create a barrier between your clean clothes.
I always threw my cords in my pocket at the last minute before getting out. So wrapping it around with a small plastic organizer takes extra time, which I never save. That said, I don't want them just floating around in my travel bag. The solution is a small pouch that at least holds it back but doesn't waste time.
If you have ever looked in a bottomless cosmetic bag one Lipstick that you have to wear that day, you know what I'm talking about. I discovered Lay-n-Go years ago and never looked back. I just open it on the bed or bathroom counter and can see all of my products at once, and it fits so much more than just one bag.
