What's in your bag?-What to pack in your carry on for an international flight

3 years ago

I have a long and dreadful  flight from JFK to Milan on Thursday.   

And I hate airplanes.




Book- The fifth book in a Game of Thrones Series-The book is topping a thousand pages-big enough for two flights.  I love to read and if the book is juicy enough I could go hours until I catch a break.
Clothes- This means panties too!  What if the airline lost my luggage!?  I could either be crying or composed because I know I have clothes to last me a day.  Hopefully this will not happen but if it does I will be prepared. 
Vaseline Lip Treatment-  Last year when I was on the plane my lips become so chapped from the altitude.  I had no idea it could be so miserable. It took me three days to heal my lips.
Travel size moisturizer - Similar to lips your face can get very dry.  Make sure this is under 3 oz. 
Dramamine- You can never be too sure on how your body will react to the motion of the plane.
Scarf- Flights are freezing!
Notebook- Sometimes as artists you get the coolest ideas for upcoming projects but we cannot remember these ideas for later on.  
Sunglasses- I will be arriving in Milan in the afternoon so I want my sunglasses ready.
Euros- Hide them!  You never know who's around you.  Make sure you ask a friend to watch your luggage when you go to the bathroom.  Things have been stolen on flights. 
Buy at the airport a huge plastic container of water.  This is worth buying at the airport.  Stay hydrated. 

Anything I miss out?

Cannot wait for my trip.  So excited.
xoxo, Caroline
