Travel Necessities: I Can’t Forget My…!

Travel Needs

The other day, I asked some friends what their MUST-HAVE travel items were. It’s different for everyone, so I was curious to see what would make them freak out if they forgot that special item at home when they were on the road traveling. The answers didn’t surprise me, as I think that a majority of people like to travel with electronics, books and snacks, among other things when they are on the road.

Check out their MUST-HAVE items below:

  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • Laptop
  • Suitcase
  • Purse
  • Socks
  • Head phones
    • “Traveling is perfect time for me to listen to new music that everyone is buzzing about. I usually check-out for the latest hip/hop mix-tapes, and’s ‘You Oughta Know’ section for budding artists of other genres.”
  • MP3 player for music
  • Light blanket
  • Water
  • Sanitizer
  • Toiletries
  • Sweater
  • Sunglasses
  • Lotion
  • Make-up
  • Candy
    • “My faves are Mento’s Strawberry flavor rolls and Welch’s Fruit Snacks in any flavor.”
  • Phone/Laptop Charger
  • Some type of snack (granola bar, chips, etc)
  • A good book or the latest magazine.
    • “For books, I like to use my travel time catching up on personal/professional development books that I’ve been meaning to read. For magazines, I catch up on the latest fashion trends and healthy living alternatives. Please note that I have a horrible track record with actually incorporating the latest trends and lifestyle changes, but I hope to remember them and get there one day :) ” 

I can’t leave home without my earphones. I need music, but I’m not sure if my seatmate needs it. Thank you, awesome Earphone Maker.

What else do you need to have with you to make for a comfortable trip?

The above image includes a few of my must-have items (minus my phone, of course).
