    Sounds boring and very un-sexy, but earplugs have saved the day so many times for me. I'm a light sleeper...so that guy snoring in the next train car? Earplugs. Late nite, need to sleep in past the hotel maid banging around? Earplugs. Need to sleep on the plane? Earplugs PLUS noise canceling bose headphones. Goodnight.

    I always bring a hoodie for the flight. If you get a seat right under the vent and it's blowing cold air the whole time, then I get sick for sure. I know, i'm an orchid, but seriously what is worse than being sick on a trip? So I compensate with layers that I can pull over my head. I've even been known to put it on backwards to help keep me warm and to sleep. :)

    Duct Tape! From bandaging up exploded luggage to removing lint from clothing, duct tape earns its all-purpose reputation. Carry a small roll (about $6) with you to patch tears in shoes, bags or clothing; baby-proof your hotel room by covering outlets and securing drawers shut; hold together a well-worn guidebook when the spine gives out; and more.

    Other than stuff that's been covered I'd add:

    • Super comfortable underwear that washes and dries quickly.
    • Back up battery for phone
    • Good podcasts and audiobooks
    • A lacrosse ball - this is my newest addition - works for a good, quick foot massage and I use it all the time to work out knots in my back (something you might know about Chase Jarvis Inc?). I put it up against a wall and use my weight to get the massage I need.

    Since I have kids, there are several things that are "must packs":

    1. Mini first aid kit - I make my own and take a few of each essential: band-aids, Neosporin, mucinex, allergy medication, advil/aleve, cough drops, anti-diarrheal, mini sewing kit, aquaphor, and thermometer.

    2. spare set of clothes (for each child and me) in my carry on bag

    3. snacks & entertainment

    4. copies of kids medical records/ copies of everyone's passports

    5. phone charger/extra battery pack

    There are so many things, but I *really* love my S'well bottle. Not only does it keep water cold seemingly forever, but it also keeps tea and coffee hot - meaning it will last for long plane/bus/train rides. Essential for staying hydrated (and awake) when crossing time zones. :)

    Face wipes are CLUTCH! On the plane, when I'm in the middle of an adventure, when I don't have time to shower before dinner (who has time for that!) - they're perfect everywhere!

    As most people mentioned, I can't leave without my camera, but 2 things that I always have on hand are chapstick and hand cream. Being up in the air just makes skin dry so those are my two quick fixes. I hate the feeling of dry hands and seeing as i'm already addicted to chapstick, it's something I can't forget.
