my fourteen carry-on essentials.
March 18, 2013 § 16 Comments
Hello spring break, oh how I’ve been waiting for this time to come!
In past years, this pause in the academic calendar has usually involved flying somewhere south with a big group of my friends to relax, soak up the sun and forget about school, deadlines and homework. Getting away always makes a vacation feel so much more like a vacation, especially when it involves lying on a beach with a margarita in hand.
But I did something rather uncharacteristic: I decided to stay put.
And I’m so happy I did.
For the first time ever I didn’t feel compelled to jet off somewhere and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.
Plus, the idea of saving money was a nice thought :)
The bigger and better news though is that one of my best friends from home is coming to visit me allll week and she lands tomorrow! Cue unbelievably high amounts of happiness. So in the spirit of her coming, and in the name of spring break travel, I thought this called for an appropriate time to do a round up of my favorite in-flight essentials. I hope this is helpful and if you have any to add to this list, I’d love to hear!
