I love getting ready to “take off” on a new adventure!! (pun intended)
I enjoy all modes of transportation while traveling…each has its own pros and cons of course…but I prefer to fly.
The funny flight attendants, in-flight drinks, meeting new people along the way…it’s all part of the experience for me.
Another thing I love is making lists. I do. I’m forgetful.
If I don’t make a list I forget it…and when I’m traveling this is no different.
Over the past few years of traveling solo and/or with friends and family, I’ve made extensive lists for flying essentials and have narrowed it down (remember I am a minimalist traveler) to just the essentials.

Printing out your boarding pass or downloading the airline app for flight confirmation is a must-do.
Medicine/First Aid Kit
A small first aid kit is a great idea for any type of travel.
Don’t forget to bring along any prescriptions you may be taking at the time of travel.
I bring an empty Brita 20 Ounce Sports Water Bottle through security and fill it once I’ve found my gate# and waiting area.
I bring this mostly for take-off and landing to help my ears pop…
but it also comes in handy when feeling nauseous.
Headphones & iPhone
With my in-flight playlist ready to go!
Pretzels mixed with M&Ms and Cashews are my travel snacks of choice.
The Hydration Lock by ChapStick© has been in my travel go-to for lip balm for the past few years.
Travel Pillow & Eye Mask
Inflatable Neck Pillow for easy sleeping and I like an eye mask to block out the light.
I highly recommend the Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer for not only the scent but it won’t dry out your hands.
They have scents for men and woman and also a line of aromatherapy that has really helped me when I’ve gotten stressed out to a point of panic attack status during travel. The Stress Relief Aromatherapy with Eucalyptus Spearmint Essential Oils is absolutely amazing.
The ultimate must-have flight essential is a comfy outfit.
- Easy to remove shoes. The Skechers Go Walk slip-on walking shoes are my comfy go-to travel shoe.
