This is what I always carry with me. These are my essentials, what I know I need, and what I've missed when I've forgotten to take it. I think a traveling bag is quite personal. You might not like tea for instance. Some people are pretty happy with what they offer up in the air. The toothbrush and toothpaste have their own little bag, as you can see.
Everything up there fits perfectly in my suede pouch, even the dinosaur (a gift from my older son, back when he was 3, he thought it would keep me company, and yes, he has!).
And the little suede pouch is part of bigger complex. I never travel without music, notebooks, camera, magazines that can be left behind and a scarf. As of late, I carry yarn and a crochet needle, so far I haven't encountered any problems with it. The only thing missing here is food (nuts, fruit, and cookies).
NOTE: This I carry when I travel alone. If I travel with my kids, my bag is all about them and their needs, not mine.
So tell me, what do you always carry with you? What item is your absolute must when you travel?
Have a great and relaxing Sunday!
