We have done many articles covering the art of packing, however it is a topic that never gets old. Whether you are traveling for leisure or business, there are simply a handful of carry-on essentials you should always take with you, packed in a specific order to make traveling manageable and worry-free.
When packing your belongings always aim for a seamless experience, starting from the moment you arrive at the airport to that point you reach your final destination.
At the airport you will want to keep your travel wallet accessible, followed by a neatly organized toiletries bag with items for at least two to three days. Additionally, do not forget your vitamins, supplements and medicine.
Inside the airplane you will most likely want your headphones, a light snack, a book, a tablet or an e-reader at a hands distance. For flights of multiple hours there are essentials you just cannot forego such as an eye mask, some ear plugs, a travel pillow and a portable charger or power bank. All these will surely make the travel more comfortable.
Depending on your final destination, be sure to add a power adapter to your list of carry-on essentials. You can read our Travel Talk about electrical outlets.
