Things to have during train, plane, bus or car rides:
Ginger: not only helps with my awful case of acid reflux but it also eases my stomach and nerves. Right now, I’m loving Gin-Gin’s (so much I will maybe do a review of them), a handy little candy made for travel. I like to eat them when I’m not traveling as well.
Tums: have saved me so many times that I’m beginning to think I’m becoming intolerant to them.
Gum: eliminates all worries, especially if you’re seated next to a ‘talker’.
Water: I hate being thirsty more than I hate $4.00 bottles of water. In any case, it’s good to be prepared.
Circle Scarf: I always wear circle scarfs while traveling because they can double as a pillow.
Comfy Clothes: wearing at least semi-comfy clothes while travelling is a no brainer. I also like to pack extra comfies that can double as pajamas.
Hair Ties: 70% of the time, I’m walking around with at least one black hair tie around my wrist. When I was in grade school, I always felt relief over being friends with at least one person who always seemed to have a hair tie to spare. Now, I’m that person. Hair ties solve all worries. If you have long hair, you’ll understand this.
