Don't Travel Without These 3 Things
3 non-negotiables I’ve never traveled with before, that I vow to never travel without again
I am writing to you from over 33k feet in the sky. At only 3 hours in to a month long adventure, I have already had 3 moments of gratitude for items in my life that meant nothing to me a mere week ago.
I envy you, for you are about to have a profound, life-changing “a-ha!” experience.
Here are three items that I’ve never traveled with before, that I vow to never travel without again. Amazon affiliate links included!
Trying to decide which books to bring along on a month long trip was a challenge I imagine rivals choosing your favorite child.
As a loyal page turner, I have sat in the camp of paper over e-readers. But the appeal of having an endless library stored in a sleek screen finally won me over (that, and how cute kindle cases are). I no longer have to plan my pocketbook to support my reading habit.
I look forward to devouring my literature alongside my meals, as Shakira so wisely put it, where ever, whenever.

Children’s Water Bottle
This purchase was a buzzer-beater at Marshall’s for me.
As someone who assigns different purposes to different water bottles (IYKYK), you may not be surprised to know that I find it important to have one to travel with.
My previous travel bottle earned its wings not on its own merit, but for the mere fact that it didn’t fit my other water-drinking needs. A consolation bottle, if you will.
As I walked to the cashier at Marshall’s, passing the children’s aisles on my way, a miniature version of my gym water bottle, possessing all of its wonderful qualities (pop up straw, insulated, leak proof, and beautiful pink) in a “honey I shrunk the water bottle” type of way.
I must tell you though, my gym water bottle has a sticker that says “shrimply the best” on it, which my travel water bottle lacks… and if you appreciate the irony of that as I do then I am especially glad that you are here.
I have recently been introduced to the peanut, which is a tool for myofascial release that resembled two fists, made of material similar to a foam roll.
As a strong believer that there is no strength without mobility, staying aligned and agile is a priority of mine. Especially while lugging a bag around with a months worth of stuff and things.
The knots in my neck will knot stand a chance.
