If you travel a lot, be it for work or pleasure, you need to get good at travel. It’s not just a case of learning how to spend your time during a layover, and sleeping well on aeroplanes, you need to supplement your knowledge with a tool kit of the vital accessories all the most seasoned travellers keep with them to ease their passage as they travel around the world
When you’re packing for a trip, you need to strike a balance with toiletries: you need to bring enough to keep yourself not merely clean but at the top of your game but not so much that passing security becomes an impossible task.
You also need to keep everything safe in your luggage: you might need to condition your hair when you arrive to look fantastic for an evening event but if that same conditioner leaks in your bag and ruins your outfit you’ll be far worse off than if you’d left it at home.
Finding the right leather wash bag doesn’t just keep your products safely isolated from clothing, and near the top of your bag ready for security checks, it also makes you look and feel like a world class luxury traveller.
Many forms of travel force you to trade comfort away for speed and convenience. Even a first class seat on a long haul flight can leave you feeling a little crumpled when you reach your destination.
You can do a lot to ameliorate this by stocking your tool kit with comfort items. Let’s take a look at a few.
Pillows are a vital addition to help you sleep comfortably on a long flight. There are lots of different designs available, from cushions that fit your neck to help you lie back and rest to ones that sit on your seat front so you can be supported when you curl forwards to sleep. Compare what’s available to your most comfortable sleeping posture and make sure you get the right one for you.
It’s also wise to find a pair of over-ear headphones to use. In-ear buds are rarely comfortable for long periods, especially the ones available on the plane itself! Over-ear headphones are more comfortable for long journeys and more effectively block out the ambient noise of the flight if you need to relax! Opting for bluetooth enabled headphones also means you have great mobility as you enjoy the inflight entertainment and don’t risk tangling wires if you get up, or put your table down.
It’s also a good idea to bring some comfortable clothes – you can dress smartly to look ready for an upgrade if one is on offer but have a comfortable sweater or cardigan in your hand luggage to put on when you’re in flight!
