I don't really think there's a need for a post on what you should bring in a carry-on bag; I mean, if you've traveled a bit before, then you probably have it covered all on your own. And if you own an iPad/tablet (I don't), then you're probably set for life on any trip you'll ever go on, haha. I just wanted to do this for fun since I'm off to Boston today for a short visit to see Matthew, and these are a few thoughts that go through my head as I'm preparing my carry-on bag. Maybe you can relate!
Magazine - for quick amusement and to read about celebs who are "just like us!"
Book - for after you blew through the magazine in like 5 minutes.
iPod - to drown out the sounds of the baby crying behind you. Always be prepared for crying babies.
Hand sanitizer - for when the person sitting next to you sneezes without covering their mouth and you suddenly feel gross.
Watch - to check the time when your phone dies from playing too much
Eye mask - whether you're actually sleeping or just pretending, people won't bother you.
Lip balm - when all the moisture in the world has left the plane, lip balm is your savior.
Gum - to ease the pain when you feel your head is about to explode from the change in altitude.
Am I forgetting anything? What can you not be without while travelling?
