At the moment I’m travelling to our workrooms in Italy about four times a year so have really refined my ‘travel essentials’ list. It’s taken a while to get to this point, so I thought I may as well share my findings.
Here are my top 5 best travel buys.
My ‘business class’ days are a distant memory (now that I’m my own boss), but my Bose noise cancelling headphones go a long way to bringing a bit of ‘business class’ serenity into the back of the bus!
My very clever husband gave them to me and I thank him every time I turn them on to block out the engine roar, a snoring neighbour, an unhappy baby or more often all of the above!
“... a solid investment for anyone who appreciates the sound of silence!” according to choice mag!
Buy them here.
I didn’t think I’d ever get the hang of sleeping upright, so these pillows have a lot to be proud of.
Forget about those inflatable jobs … you can’t beat the squishy bean bag variety. (Very handy for preventing an embarrassing falling-asleep-and-dribbling-on-your-neighbour situation too!)
Find them here.
You cannot fully appreciate the joy of a 4-wheel suitcase until you’ve tried one!
A big step up from a 2-wheeler, because “pulling” becomes “guiding” when it comes to this genius luggage concept. Very handy for airport halls, but down-right incredible when you’ve traversing no less than six train station platforms as I do each time I visit Italy.
I hate stopping to buy water when I’m travelling, so I think I’ve found the solution to this problem with my Vapur water pouch!
My friend put me onto these recently and I’m sold I tell you. They are foldable, flexible, collapsible, reusable, and are BPA (Bisphenol A) free!
Get hold of them here.
Nothing much needs to be said on this subject. I’ve been known to get through a pack of them before the safety demo is complete.
They’re great for sorting out a mid-flight sugar craving too … if they make it that far into the journey of course.
So, if you’re heading away on a long haul flight for the holidays ... or just somewhere groovy near-by, like Mildura for instance, I hope you have a happy and safe trip! xx
