Traveling Survival

I’ve already made one major trip across country this year, one of which I was completely unprepared for. Yet with 3 more scheduled before the end of this year I decided to prepare the perfect travel resource for flying and surviving.

Perfect Outfit

The proper outfit should be something comfortable, flexible and light. If you want to avoid undressing at TSA with a line of 60 people waiting and watching behind you I suggest avoiding excessive jewelry and dress for comfort. Think casual Saturday as opposed to Sunday’s best.


Carry On Bags/Totes

Backpacks, totes, and carry on roller bags…Definitely not a full on suitcase but not a clutch either. The perfect bag or tote is a decent size that’s not a hindrance to lug around when dashing from terminal A to G and it should be able to fit under your seat or in the cabin above.
