There’s a lot of travel with my job in the fall. This year particularly there seems to be more extended stay trips. Overnight trips are a bit easier; a change of clothes and you’re done. I’m currently beginning a four night trip and besides the complication of trying to decide what I think I’m going to want to wear three days from now, I was conscious I was packing of those “extras”: the things I take on longer trips for a bit of added comfort away from home.
1. Comfy loungewear. At some point during the trip, I’m going to need to leave the room for ice or the vending machine after I’ve ditched the dress up clothes. I’ve met people I know while making a run for it in the hotel bathrobe or some other random ensemble. It’s not a look I long to repeat.
3. My favourite drink.
I usually just use whatever’s in the room, but the air in cities in general and hotels in particular is so dry I can more than drain one of those little bottles. I need to the industrial strength size after a couple of days.
5. Cold supplies
6. Extra Yarn
I’m wondering what your go-to travel extras are?
