Aside from Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check which you can learn more about on cbp.gov, my Delta Amex is something I cannot live without. I treat my credit card as a debit card and pay it off weekly so I rack up those miles! It doesn't matter where I'm going, whether its a 24hr trip or a European vacation these are some essential items I cannot live without!
When my iPhone just can't get the shot, I use this camera to take my photos. It has seriously been a game changer for me when it comes to photography and its really easy to travel with because its so light! You can choose to upgrade the lens if you want, however the standard lens does exactly what I need it to do, without weighing the camera down.
Being unkind to the environment is not cute so I try to avoid plastic when traveling as much as I possibly can. I'm on the road a lot and If I can I pack my own meals I will because eating out all the time isn't the kindest thing to do to your body. The worst is when you forget utensils when you're about to go IN on your meal. I love these because they have their own carrying pouch, so when you're done using them, you wrap them up and clean them when you get home.
Avoiding plastic is another reason why I love this bottle! This bottle is stainless steel, BPA-Free and features no plastic lining in the bottle or lid. They also come in some really cool color and shape options. I have 4 of these with the Flip-n-Sip lid!
I love love love these! Are you that traveler that overpacks and ends up using about 40% of what you actually packed? Not to worry, so am I! These enable my overpacking habits and keep everything nice and organized. They are great because you can use one for dirty laundry, shoes and unworn items while making everything fit perfectly into your carry-on!
I hate when I'm on a flight and I forget these because my wired apple headphones don't block the airplane noise, so I can never understand what's happening in a movie unless I have the subtitles on! They are so convenient, cute and block the sound. They also come with an app which you can download onto your phone to customize your hearing experience.
I could probably add about 5 more things to this list but these are the essentials!
