Travel Essentials!

As I write this post, I’m anticipating a shuttle to pick my parents and I up for a graduation trip to Costa Rica (unfortunately Shannon and TJ couldn’t make this trip). I love traveling, whether it’s international trips like this one, or quick weekend getaways for quick refreshers before a new week.  But I have to say that getting ready for the trips can be a bit stressful and chaotic. Which is why I’ve created some of my most essentials for traveling. Now, this doesn’t cover everything, but these are my definite go-to’s whenever I’m getting on a plane or going to be sitting in a car for an extended period of time (hence the comfy pants to accommodate long-term sitting, a practical carry-on with plenty of room for snacks, books, etc. You get the idea)! It’s a general list, which is why I consider them my essentials-they are the important pieces for any trip-from tropical paradise to rainforests and jungles, rain or shine, to busy city sights!
