10 Must-Have Flight Essentials


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.
