Soon I'll be leaving for vacation. I'm anxious to reach our destination but NOT looking forward to sitting on an airplane for what seems to be days.... Due to my anxiety (ants in my pants and claustrophobia) I've come up with a few travel tips to make it a little easier.
First, I always wear something really comfy (Vince drawstring pants, a tee, and jacket) and I bring a cashmere scarf to keep me warm and I find it also helps me to rest. A pillow for the neck is also helpful if you don't mind packing it with your carry on.
Flying makes me feel grungy and sticky. Giovanni towelettes help keep my hands and face feeling fresh and I like the lavender scent.
Too keep my tummy from rumbling, I always pack a few snacks for the flight because I don't like the food on the airplane. We also try to buy something like a sandwich in the airport once we pass security. We are fortunate that SeaTac has a nice selection of food options.
Moisturizer for my hands and lips. Between my flying anxiety and the dry air, my lips are always in need of a little moisture.
Love the diptyque collection. They have a wonderful travel collection perfect for carry on.
I always bring assorted magazines, a couple good books, and a word search.
Any good book recommendations??
I always feel better when I stay hydrated. Lots of water and maybe a cocktail ..
Looking forward to something sweet when I get there..
I'll try to take lots of pictures..
..but I won't be able to visit my favorite blogs. I have promised to leave my computer at home and give my undivided attention to..
Be back in a few weeks!
