When travelling, I like to create lists to make sure that I don’t forget anything even though I pretty much always end up forgetting at least one item. I don’t know about you but I love being organised by creating itineraries and lists of things that I need to do. I am travelling to Belgium on Monday so I thought it would be fun to share what I like to keep in my hand luggage. Although I will get getting the Eurostar instead of flying, I thought I would share anyway.
I like to make sure that I have all of my essentials and necessities in my hand luggage as it allows for easy access and I always know where they are. I usually keep a pink folder in my bag so that I can put in all of the things that are the most important. I like to have a pink folder so it stands out and I know that it’s in my bag, rather than panicking when I can’t see it. In this folder, I keep my passport, boarding pass/ticket, travel money, and any insurance documents. As I have all of these together, it makes life so much easier when you have to get them out. Other important items include my purse, phone/tablet, glasses, and a charger with an adapter.
Once I have gotten all of the important items out of the way, I will decide what else to include. I always like to bring a book with me, especially on short flights as there is often no entertainment. I’m currently reading The Handmaid’s Tale so I will be taking that to Belgium with me. I’ll also make sure I bring earphones and I will definitely be listening to The Greatest Showman soundtrack because I am obsessed. The earphones I am using at the moment are the TaoTronics Magnetic earphones.
As for beauty products, I like to have a little bag where I keep my Lush Lip Scrub, a lip balm, hand sanitizer, hand cream, and hair bobbles to tie up my hair. I also make sure to keep my toothbrush and toothpaste in my hand luggage, especially if I have an overnight flight. As it can be a bit chilly, I will often pack an extra jumper so I don’t get too cold.
