My In-Flight Entertainment

  Amazon Kindle ($79) Bring all of your favorite books with you on your trip. I've been trying to read more actual books, and having a Kindle has made it a million times easier. I get so much reading done when I travel thanks to this guy. See product on Amazon

My Favorite Headphones

Sony Stereo Headphones ($15)  These headphones are comfortable and great for plane rides, and have lasted me throughout many travel excursions including backpacking Europe, and still work perfectly. And they are $15 – which is out of control. If you forget them on the plane or at your hotel, you can easily just get another pair no problamo. But don't take my word for it – there are over 6,000 reviews on Amazon, so you know this shit is for real.  See product on Amazon

My Favorite Pillow

Travel Pillow with Snap ($16) Having one of these travel pillows truly makes a difference on those long flights. Make sure you get one that snaps in the front so you can snap it to your bag and let it hang off, and not have to worry about finding space to pack it. See product on Amazon

My Carry On

Sorial Park Avenue Tote ($145) This bag is so spacious, you could fit your clothes and your dog and your kid and still have room to spare. There's also no hardware, so it's super lightweight and can easily fold up and get crammed in your suitcase. See product on Sorial

My Secret to Shut-Eye

Sleep Mask ($12) I love sleep masks and use them all of the time, even at home when Danny decides he wants to stay up and watch The Wire until 2AM. They really do help you fall asleep faster, and can be a blessing on a long-distance flight. See product on Etsy

My Back Up Juice

Anker Astro Portable Battery Phone Charger ($24) This cute little guy has been my life saver a million times over. It can hold enough juice to fully charger your phone (or iPad or Kindle or whatever) a few times. Chuck this in your bag and you will never have to worry about falling into the dreaded "red zone" again. It especially came in handy abroad, where it's harder to find compatible outlets to charge your stuff. See Product on Amazon
