When travelling I have to take a travel bag full of goodies to keep myself occupied for the trip ahead. I also might have a tendency to over pack. However, I do pack the essentials for the long journey ahead.
This year I am going on a cruise around the Mediterranean. Although I do not have to get on a plane as we board in Southampton, I still feel like a travel bag is essential. When deciding to pack an item I always ask myself three questions. Is the item going to occupy my time? Is the item going to comfort me? Is the item small? This is to ensure I know I am not bringing an item just for the sake of it. Here are my travel bag essentials.
Firstly, decide on a bag. Think of small here. Too big will be annoying to move around and too small will not carry all your essentials. Here I opted for a rucksack. This is because the weight will be distributed on my back evenly, it is easy to carry and it has the perfect amount of room.

Time is next. What will occupy me while we are sitting in traffic or waiting to board. For me usually I would opt for a book on a flight, but since this moment will be few and far between I chose a magazine. I usually choose fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazines.

As for Comfort I always pack some ibuprofen (just in case) and any other medication I might need. Recently I purchased some anxiety chewing gum and mouth spray to help with any anxiety I experience on the day. I would highly recommend anyone with anxiety carry these products around as they are great for on the go.

Finally, just add some small essentials such as your purse, passport, sunglasses and a bottle of water. Ladies ensure to take sanitary options. You are then good to go.
I wish you all a great holiday wherever you are going.
