Hi! How are you doing today? 2 more days til the weekend! And because today’s a Travel Wednesday and I like to feel happier on Wednesdays, I want to share with you my in-flight essentials: the updated version. 🛫
I try to not carry much with me because I know I’ll exhaust myself, especially because it’s easy to carry around 10kgs just on my handbag. Nowadays, I try to limit the amount of things I allow myself to shove inside my bag. So, true essentials: my insulin pens, scanner, needles, anything diabetes-related to measure and control my glycaemia. I also always have sweets and sugar with me. If I’m flying during lunch or dinner time, I need to bring my own food. I freak out just thinking I won’t know how many carbs I’m eating and don’t want to have a low mid-flight.
A book. A notebook or my bullet journal. Pens. Tissues (many tissues!). A chapstick (my favourite one is the Burt’s Bees lip balm!). I don’t really need earphones nor offline games on my phone to keep myself entertained. I used to do that and watch YouTube videos I’d download beforehand but I don’t feel the need for those any more. A book and a notebook is truly all I need. I can be entertained for 2 hours with just a notebook and lots of planning. So, what about you? Do you travel often and if you do, what things keep you entertained when flying? Let me know!
