What’s in my Carry-On?

Over the past few years, I have experimented with various bags and packing strategies. Even though I usually pack my clothes in roller bag for the overhead compartment, I believe that having a good carry-on underneath the seat in front of me is imperative to any trip.

I have found that my Longchamp bag works the best. It’s spacious and easy to carry without being incredibly bulky or heavy. I call it my “Mary Poppins’ Bag.”

Below I have listed my essentials:

  • Passport/Wallet/ID (RFID Protection)
  • My Google Pixel 3 for photos and music (I subscribe to Spotify. I highly recommend!)
  • Headphones (I have the rose gold Beats that are both bluetooth and wired for airplane TVs)
  • Chapstick
  • Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes (because germs)
  • Over the Counters (Advil, Tums, any necessary medications)
  • Eye Masks (for some added moisturizer after landing)
  • Colgate Wisps to freshen up
  • My Kindle
  • Travel Pillow (tied to the outside of my bag)
  • Travel blanket/pillow Snuggie set
  • Pen (for any forms upon landing)
  • My Coach packable backpack (for any souvenirs or exploring)
  • Waterproof camera (depending on the excursions)
  • My Fossil Smartwatch (usually wearing this 😉 )
  • My Laptop
  • Any cables for electronics in their organizer

What do you like in your carry-on?
