Some of us are absolute klutz when we need to pack for a trip, so bookmark this ultimate packing list for every trip and thank me later.

Let me break this down into categories. I’ll keep it simple, so you can follow carefully and not miss a thing. And I’ll link some of my absolute favourites to my amazon affiliates page. (Btw, I may get a commission if you click on any of these links, so be nice, and check them out!)

On the flight

So what do you carry for your 12 to 24-hour flight?

Prepare a packing list especially for your personal item carry-on bag with anything that you’ll want with you on the flight. It’s always a good idea to make sure you have an outfit (or two) and a few essential toiletries in your personal item just in case your luggage is lost.

First, if you don’t have one already, get a digital luggage scale. You don’t want any surprises. You’ll also need, I think, this really drool-worthy Lannsyne Vintage Full Leather Crossbody bag to store essential documents. I fell in love at first sight.

Others on our ‘on-the-flight’ list include:

  •  A good pair of noise canceling earphones
  • Jacket (That flight gets cold!)
  • Blanket (Those ones on the flight are germiphobes, I believe. Use with caution)
  • Socks. (Use these thermal ones. You’d love them)
  • Your passport/ID/Visa. (Needs to be said!)
  • Empty water bottle
  • Sunshades (I never leave home without it)
  • Your contacts (Emergency – on a small booklet, just in case your phone dies – or gets stolen?)
  • Speaking of dead phones, then how about getting a power bank? I’m addicted to these Anker ones.
  • And USB charger?
  • Pain relievers and Vitamins
  • Baby Wipes
  • Face mask – Covid dealt with everyone in 2020. Please be careful and healthy.
  • Mini mirror
  • Mini/Travel Flashlight
