The 17 Things We Can’t Travel Without In 2018!

It’s travel day.  You’ve crossed through security (pre-check, right?) and just when you think you have a little time to breath and slow down, it hits you. You didn’t pack your headphones. Or your moisturizer. Or your blanket. Damn.

Sure, plenty of things can be purchased when you arrive at your destination, or at super-inflated priced in an airport, but when you plan to be in the air more than just a few hours, there are some things that no one wants to fly without, and some just can’t be found at your local Hudson News type airport shop for 3x it’s value. In the spirit of making 2018 your best travel year yet, here is a breakdown of what travel mavens like you just can’t fly without, from our readers and social followers directly!
