Hey there! I’m writing this from the plane to SFO, I will post as soon as I have access to the internet.
Did I mention earlier that I’m a nervous traveler? Well, I am, and today’s shenanigans did not help ease any of that anxiety. I barely slept last night with so many lists and things running through my head. Did I forget this? or that? Am I going to the right airport? Do I have the right flight time? This is just the usual stuff, and by the time I get to the security line I’m totally fine.
Today however, the line was slow, and well over 100 people long. Plus, they only had two screening lanes open! Sometimes I really don’t understand United airlines. I got to the airport a little over an hour before my flight was scheduled to take off, and barely made it to the gate within the last 5 minutes of boarding. I know it was not something to stress over – the speed of the line was well out of my control. I’m learning.
Some of my travel essentials:
Kor eco-friendly, BPA free giant water bottle. I take this guy everywhere, even to the gym.
Yes to Cucumbers facial towelettes. Works wonderfully as a makeup remover, or just a face wash when you don’t have full access to a bathroom.
Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 unscented castile soap. Seriously, the best multi-use soap ever.
Mineral sunscreen, spf 30+. If you’re as white as I am, this is a must.
Bug spray, just in case. Mosquito’s really like me this year.
The emergency stash. Just a few things to keep me from buying overpriced airport food or snacking on whatever I find in an instant when I get really hungry. Four new (!) clif bar flavors (just at the maple nut one, really good, but a little too sugary), justin’s nut butter packets, some PB and cacao bliss packets, Go Raw flax crackers, and Navitas raw trail mix. I’m not sure why I like to eat raw snacks on-the-go, but it’s become a habit.
What are some of your travel essentials?
UPDATES: 9:45pm PST, in Russian Hill, SF
Sorry for such a late post, I was not at the computer all day. Touring the city today was awesome – although my legs may not think so tomorrow! That’s a great workout, walking the hills of San Francisco. I’ll do a roundup post some time this weekend.
