Packing for an upcoming trip has to be the most exciting and stressful thing ever. No matter how detailed my packing list is, I always forget something. I can't be the only one that forgets something, right? Occasionally I will forget a toothbrush, no big deal I will go to the nearest grocery store. But if you forget socks or underwear, you're screwed basically. Because who wants to go to the mall when you are on vacation? Or even worse... what if there is NO mall around?
Anyway, I'm off to Colorado for a long weekend trip. I am beyond excited! Colorado has always been on my bucket list and I finally get to check it off come Monday when I return. I normally pack light, I want to say I have become a pro at it. I will be staying at my cousin's and they have a washer and dryer so it is easier to pack light since I will be able to do laundry.
Normally I bring one carry-on suitcase and pack a backpack. I won't bore you with which clothes and shoes I am bringing, so here is a list of my travel necessities for my backpack or purse:
1. Clorox wipes for the plane
I am such a germaphobe. I wipe down the tray, the headrest, arm rests, basically any surface my body with make contact with
2. Gum for take off
I need to be chewing gum or else my ears will kill me the whole way.
To watch the free movies they provide us. Funny story, on my way to Vegas this summer I was watching Midnight Sun with Bella Thorne and by the end of it I was crying so hard I was hyperventilating.
I don't really go anywhere without chapstick.
5. My electronics and their chargers
I always bring my laptop because I always have school work due and I obviously cannot live without my iPhone.
6. Portable charger
You might have just said, you already included your phone charger? I bring a backup in case there are no outlets near my terminal.
For some reason I always sweat a lot in airports mainly because of nerves... aka missing my flight. Once I get off the plane I want to feel refreshed, too.
8. Water bottle
I usually bring an empty water bottle so I can fill it up once I get through security so I can use it for the remainder of my trip.
Just in case it's sunny where I land.
10. Healthy snacks
I usually bring my own because I don't want to pay for overpriced airport snacks.
11. A good book
I always bring a book, but I never end up reading it. I like the idea of having one with me.
12. My neck pillow
This baby is my saving grace. Especially for long plane rides, I just throw it around my neck and I'm out like a light.
Well, I'm off to Colorado! Catch ya after my trip! XX
