I wish I can come up with a “Traveling Mom’s Travel Essentials” post but at this point, after making my own list, I realized that my current list of travel essentials is not as different as that of anybody else’s. My list was finalized through various experiences of traveling around the world and passing through different airports. I would be glad to share with you the many ridiculous stories behind each one too. All above listed, I stash in my shoulder bag that I always keep close with me, if not placed under the seat in front of me. Yes, all these items unbelievably fit. This goes without saying that this is not a small shoulder bag. What I put in my wheeled backpack are just clothes and my bathroom kit filled with supplies in 100 ml or 3.4oz containers. In case I am staying for a few months at my destination, I of course have checked in luggage of at least 15 kilos, filled with some more clothes, books, arts and crafts materials, and a 6-outlet power strip.
