Summer travel has been a mash-up of personal and business this year— fun work opportunities and lots of family time at the cottage. No matter who I’m talking to, stress-free travel is on everyone’s mind, and people are constantly asking me about carry-on must-haves to help ease the stress of air travel.
I do have packing my carry-on down to a science at this point, and have gotten to know just what I need to get from airport to airport, stress-free. Real estate in my carry-on bag is a hot commodity (choosing the right bag is a challenge in and of itself), and every ounce counts as I trudge through security and beyond without being weighed down, so it’s critical to pack intentionally. Here’s some of what’s in my carry-on bag these days— hope your travels are safe, stress-free, and fun.
