Over the years, I have found ways to make the less-than-romantic parts of flying as comfortable as I can make for myself and my husband. While this is not meant to be an all-encompassing list of everything that I have stashed in my carry-on, I hope that these 7 tips that I use are helpful for you as you prepare to stay seated, with your seatbelt securely fastened.
There are two types of travelers in my house. One traveler starts to pack a few weeks before the trip, making sure that we have all of the must-haves to make our trip comfortable. The other traveler is famous for packing the night before we leave for a trip and has become a legend because he once traveled without packing shirts. (True story!) Which traveler are you?
Do you know how important luggage tags are when you travel? Discovering that your suitcase has not met you in baggage claim is never a fun experience and it can be an incredibly inconvenient and disruptive component to your trip. In fact on an overseas flight to Sweden, my husband's suitcase got lost due to a canceled flight and he found himself without his belonging for nearly his entire trip.
