How do you feel about traveling?  I love exploring new places, meeting new cultures and enjoying all the new foods.  I also feel that traveling is extremely exhausting.  I think it’s the whole process of getting there and getting home is what wears me out.  Who likes waiting in airport security lines for them to check your hair bun?  And who likes hearing their plane is going to be 4 hours late?   Also, I’m a homebody.  I love my own bed, my own tea cup, my daily routine and especially our cats.  I miss those critters so bad while I’m away, I can’t wait to walk through the door and pick them all up in big hugs. 

 When traveling you need to be prepared.  When we went to the Middle East earlier this year there were certain things that we couldn’t bring into the country and there were some things I forgot to pack that we definitely weren’t able to buy there.  I really don’t like to waste money on a new bottle of aspirin when a sudden travel headache comes up when I know I have a brand new bottle at home waiting for me in the medicine cabinet.  That’s why I always travel with a first aid kit.  It has the basics of what you need when away from home, in case you have a headache, get a cut or need some energy when you get 2 hours sleep.

Ever feel like this? This was in Berlin when we landed and got to the hotel.  Yawns.  Even worse, the bed was super comfy which meant we never wanted to get up.

 Some essential things I always pack:
Advil (perfect for headaches and those monthly cramps)
Chapstick (I always need this on the plane)
Emergen-C (kills colds before they hit and great to take in the morning for energy instead of caffeine)
Bandages, Gauze, Medical Tape (accidents happen)
Tweezer (great for that splinter you got)
Nail Clippers (nails that get cracked/broken are a bummer, especially when one rips your new dress)
Robitussin (I always pack this in the Winter)

This is the perfect time to make a travel kit because you get these cases for $1 with the back to school supplies.  If you want to make your own first aid kit for traveling then stop by Walgreens and get 10,000 Balance Rewards points when you spend $30 on Pfizer products.  That’s free money!

The hydration lock from Chapstick rules my world.  It has a day and night side, with the night side being a little heavier while you sleep.  It also has SPF in it.  I looove it.

And to leave you… here’s some resting hotel beds that I’ve recently laid my head on in Qatar, London, Berlin, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Toronto!
