Comfort for travel: A simple girl’s guide


I will soon be on a flight for a mini vacation (more like, “workcation”). Amidst all the packing and mess, it struck me to share what I love doing the most ..PACKING! *yes, I’m a little weird that way*

This is my 3-step process:

  1. List items to take
  2. Set them aside 2 nights before (for any additional supplies needed to be bought)
  3. Pack them on the day

I managed to put together this one list, which in my opinion covers up most of what I have in my travel carry on.

I prefer to stay comfortable with a tote bag, which is super convenient and gives me the freedom to put in all my essentials together.

The items that I must have in my handbag (apart from things like passport & wallet) while I wander around in different countries are:

  • Mobile phone – with the latest playlist downloaded
  • Power bank – don’t want to run out of juice
  • HedKandi headphones
  • Mini make up bag with my trusted compact powder, signature red lipstick and travel size perfume
  • Travel size hand sanitizer
  • Journal & pen
  • Peppermint gum
  • Wet wipes & tissues
  • Travel size oral hygiene kit
  • Travel pillow

Apart from this, I like to carry reading material, which is either a book or a magazine. This is for more than 4-hour flights and to manage those lull-waiting moments.

Also I will be posting a lot of travel pictures as I go about so make sure you follow me on IG @funkyblogqatar.
