Frequent traveling requires organization and planning, which I have learned over the past two years. My four-to-seven-day journeys usually do not require a lot of things, so traveling light and having reliable travel accessories makes the journey a lot more easier.
This past year I have traveled back to the UK at least seven times, sometimes with the children> More often, I would be traveling alone. And during my travels I have discovered the important things that I need to bring for a more organized and stress-free trip. So I have put together my own personal list of must-have travel accessories just to make life a little easier while hopping from one country to another.1. Anker® Astro Mini iPhone5 portable battery charger
If you’re like me who like to travel with my phone and iPad, I found this great little device that enables you to charge your phone or tablet device on the go. No more dreading the 1% battery bar -- this handy lipstick-sized charger can charge your phone from 0% to 100%, more than enough just to get you through those emergency calls and texts!! They also come in four colors.
NEXT ⇒ 2. TravelRight Advanced Digital Luggage Scale
Thankfully I have never been caught with oversized baggage. But nowadays, even with cabin luggages you are only allowed up to 10kg. Before investing in one of these babies, I used the bathroom scales to weigh my bags. Of course that's not the most clever things you could do. After a few sore toes and a broken back, I finally bought myself one of these. A sturdy and reliable weighing scale that also has an alarm system that allows you to know the weight of your bag without having to read it. A real back-saver!
NEXT ⇒ 3. Thumbs Up UK Dual SIM Case for iPhone 5
Traveling back and forth from UK to Valencia is a pain when it comes to having to change your phone SIM card. I have already lost two UK and Spanish SIM cards in the last year thinking I'd put them in a safe place -- but of course that safe place is never to be found again!
This time I have come well prepared! I would like to say THANKS to the person who invented this handy little device. It will save me numerous SIM cards, and with a click of a button I can change from one service to another. Happy days!
NEXT ⇒ 4. Ickle Bockles
No more fear when it comes to bringing your favorite body creams and lotions -- these bottles not only look great, but they can also store your favorite liquid products and come in a transparent resealable bag, which of course can be used instead of those £1.00 bags they sell you at the airport. The bottle caps are interchangeable to pour or pump action and most importantly they comply with the current EU carry-on rules.
NEXT ⇒ 5. Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Stick
It’s a fact: Traveling on planes makes you dehydrated. I look after my skin by drinking plenty of water before and during the flight. Having combination skin, I find my face becoming a lot drier when traveling, especially on my cheeks and forehead. I find this Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Stick from Boots is handy enough for your handbag and keeps your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.
NEXT ⇒ 6. RIMOWA – Salsa Air four-wheel Cabin Trolley
If you really take your travelling seriously then I would suggest investing in a good quality cabin bag. This particular item is not cheap, but it is super stylish, lightweight, and durable and can withstand the usual rigors of luggage holds. It also has a telescopic top and side handles and a multi-wheel base which make navigating airports a breeze.
NEXT ⇒ 7. Smartphone wallet clutch
This handmade, stylish smartphone wallet clutch is the creation of MrAndMrsWallet. I particularly like this because it's compact and has all the necessary compartments for your necessities. With 12 card slots, a phone pocket, four additional pockets for money, passport, check-in documents, etc., and a zipped pocket for coins, this beautiful wallet is ideal for the organized traveler!
NEXT ⇒ 8. Cashmere Travel Blanket, Eyeshade & Pillow Set
If you have the extra moolah to spend on your travel accessories and take air traveling comfort to the next level, then I would recommend to splash out on this pure cashmere travel set. Made from 100% wool, this luxurious set comes with a blanket, eye mask and a travel pillow case with many colors to choose from.
