I travel a LOT. Both to manage client events and for fun. And in this nomadic lifestyle, I’ve come up with a packing list that does it all. It gives me the supplies I need to stay healthy, energetic and calm when working events and taking what are usually hyperactive vacations. In my travel bag of tricks:
First aid kit – you never know when a paper cut will strike!
Snacks – to keep the energy level going. I’m a huge fan of RX Bars.
My favourite tea mug – which is constantly being filled up.
Chargers – for this, that and the other gizmo. I can charge almost everything.
Cash – for tips! When I’m managing an event, my new best friends are the venue staff. They’re the lifesavers who help you throughout the event.
Comfy shoes – gone are the days when I was in heels for 16 hours a day!
Gym clothes – for when the energy level is going and I can sneak in a break from event duties.
Travel candles – yes, there is such a thing! A friend gave me some and I now can’t live without them. They’re heavenly in stuffy hotel rooms and they help me relax.
Writing supplies – pens, highlighters, sharpies, and more. You name it, I probably have it.
Alcohol (to sterilize those paper cuts, of course…)
It’s always fun to compare notes with other road warriors, to see what “can’t-live-without-it’s” are in their bags. What do you have in your travel bag of tricks?
(Not a paid endorsement for any of the above! I just love them…)
