Beach tote bag / Tumi travel handbag / Longchamp travel handbag / Louis Vuitton tote
Yesterday I posted about Pinch Provisions, little kits of necessities so that if you are in a pinch, you are prepared. This post is about being prepared while traveling.
I'm traveling to the west coast today. I always take this leather Tumi tote with me on a plane. I've had it for at least a decade. I keep it "stocked" so it is always ready.
There is a big, zipped pocket inside where I keep these essentials.
Pockets on the outside contain these items. I have a hardshell case for the sunglasses and eye glasses. Spare glasses are a must if you need eye glasses. Having your eye glass or contact prescription with you is a good idea too. Water!!! Take a bottle on the plane with you!! A folded fabric bag (I like Baggu) is so versatile, for shopping, dirty laundry, beach bag or gym bag. An umbrella is vital. Earphones are handy.
Having a few healthy snacks with you is essential. You may miss meals with a plane delay or if you are (horrors!) stuck on the tarmac waiting.
What would your essentials be? Do you have a bag ready and waiting for travel?
