I love to travel. I mean lets be honest, my biggest life goal is to visit every country before I die. Need I say more? I still have a ways to go to reach this goal, which means I have plenty of time to perfect my packing skills. Believe me, I need all the time I can get! The people that pack for weeks in a carry-on are my hero (teach me your ways oh wise packers!) because usually, I end up fitting everything in a giant suitcase, 1 carry on, a massive purse and 3/4 of my husband’s suitcase (plus wearing 5 layers which gets really awkward during security).
One area I struggle the most in, is packing up my electronics. As a blogger, your world revolves around all things electronic. It also usually involves being on-the-go, and while blogging can be a portable job, not all your gadgets can be. I learned the hard way what was important and what wasn’t and how to travel with it all in style.
A Tote– Lots of pockets and a convertible strap (to make it longer when your shoulder gets tired) are key
Notebook & Pencil- Good for jotting down quick notes, and if, heaven forbid, all your electronics are dead
Headphones– To drown out the noise so you can fly/work/sleep in peace
Pouch– To keep small essentials from getting lost in the depths of a tote (i.e. chargers, lipstick, gum)
Convertible Flats– Lugging all these electronics is hard work, so be ready to take the stress off your feet at a moments notice
Envy 4 Touchsmart Ultrabook™- This laptop is light enough to take it wherever you go, meaning you never have to miss out on work and you won’t have to break your back carrying it. It’s also small enough that it won’t take up too much space leaving room to pack up all your other goodies.
