Taking a trip? Check out these 8 must haves
I like my travel tight. Get everything I need in as small a space as I can possibly fit, BUT I also know that I’m a packrat and I’ll probably buy some stuff I don’t need, but I’ll have to have because who knows if I’ll ever get the chance to buy a snowglobe on the Great Wall of China again? You know you feel me. So I’ve put together a collection of things that will keep your phone charged, laptop backed up, possessions safe, AND do it in style and in the most compact way possible. If you’re taking a trip…Check out these 8 must haves that WE USE ALLLLL the time.
This is my second Tumi backpack. My first was in college and I busted it to save up for one. I worked at a Neiman Marcus part-time just so I could buy a Tumi backpack and two Hugo Boss suits during the friends and family discount. I quit two weeks later. Is that silly? Who knows and it’s not the point – the point is I’ve never turned back from Tumi backpacks. They’re highly durable, stylish, and this Alpha Bravo has pockets built for the road warrior or the casual weekender.
I’ve used Hartmann luggage for a long time, and I picked this bad boy up last year on sale, and it’s fit the bill. Hartmann has a great warranty and personally I think the herringbone
Ebags packing cubes. I really do use them everytime I travel.
I travel with 2 or 3 of these bad boys. They’ve saved my life…or least my life as a blogger with a phone who’s battery likes to die right before boarding.
These guys are fully water proof and offer true 4k video. I’d never had a GoPro prior to this, but I’ve been loving it. They aren’t cheap, but I’ve found them to be really fun to film with and the image/video quality is great.
- My Macbook Air is Slim, fast, and it’s Miles’ favorite. The only downside…it doesn’t have a large hard drive…that’s where the Seagate comes in
Miles whips this bad boy out no matter if he’s on the plane…or lounging in Bali at Mandapa!
I love this thing. I bought it in 2015 for our Safari and it ends up getting packed into my roller. If I buy stuff…Bam! I unpack this bad boy and I have a durable bag to toss it into. Hello Madison Wisconsin 🙂
