I’m an awfully light sleeper that is affected by any bit of light or sound. This mask has made sleeping on trains and plains possible because it contours to the shape of your face without being intrusive.
This vacuum-insulated bottle keeps my tea hot and my water cold for extended periods of time, making it easy to stay hydrated during long travel days. It’s also BPA free, and comes in a rainbow of colors.
Ever since I went to study abroad in Krakow as a college coed, these books have been my trusty guide to destinations both far and near. I love the extensive historical and cultural information given in each guidebook that helps me get a better understanding of a new place.
Please note that I’m not a health expert, and the following recomendations are based off of personal preference.
For wonky ears during takeoff and landing, these earplugs are lifesavers and always help lessen the pressure.
I take this probiotic daily and have definitely seen an improvement in my digestion, and I also tend to get sick less as well due to a healthier immune system. Cannot recommend these enough.
For those times when I regret eating that questionable-looking food, this charcoal pill works wonders for any major gastrointestinal distress.
For those times when my stomach is a bit achy or feels a bit off, these natural pills will help ease any minor gastrointestinal distress.
As I’ve gotten older, I realize that I get carsick more often. This OTC medicine makes me less drowsy than Dramamine, and I’m a big fan of the raspberry flavor.
Transportation and Accommodation
A great website for booking hotels both in the U.S and abroad. Love the straightforward layout and the incentive of getting a free hotel stay after booking 10 nights.
I have only good things to say about this alternative lodging website, and have memorable experiences both in the U.S. and abroad. It’s a great way to get a feel for a place and get to know those who call that place home. If it’s your first time booking, save $23 with this link (this review is not paid by Airbnb, I just really like the company).
I use this website for checking on price trends for a certain place or if I want to look for cheap destinations within a certain area of the world. As a highly visual person I love all the maps and graphs.
When I’m booking within the U.S., I always make sure to check this site separately, since they do not show up on Kayak search engines, and can be a bit cheaper. Best of all they are flexible for rescheduling flights (even at the last minute).
