In-Flight Travel Essentials

Hello everyone,

Today, I decided to write about what I can’t live without while traveling. Or more specifically what I can’t live without while travelling on short flights because later this week I am flying to Dubrovnik, Croatia. So, let’s get into it.


This one is a given, right? Without a passport, you wouldn’t be able to travel anywhere, but I wanted to include it anyway because it’s just the travel essential number one.


Antibacterial Hand Gel

I am certainly one of those people obsessed with hygiene who can’t touch anything without cleaning their hands first, and well, it might be a problem while travelling and so this antibacterial hand gel by Zoella Beauty saves my life every time. What I especially like about this product is, that it doesn’t smell like your typical antibacterial gel. It has a lovely fresh flowery kind of scent.


Wet Wipes

Wet wipes sort of go in hand with the antibacterial hand gel. It doesn’t matter if you use them on your face or other body parts, they just come handy.


Lip Balm

To be honest, I can’t exist without a good lip balm in general, so I thought I would include it in this list as well. Some lip balms tend to dry my lips out but this one from Nivea is excellent.


Chewing Gums

I’ve recently become an addict when it comes to chewing gums. Especially the sweet ones. For some reason, I don’t really like the usual peppermint chewing gums. I feel like the taste becomes pretty annoying after a while but these mango and lime ones from M&S are my recent favourites.



You never know when you get hungry and you also never know when you’ll be able to get some food while travelling. And to prevent eating something unhealthy it’s better to carry some snack with you. I like to have a protein bar for a snack but they usually have some dodgy ingredients so I opt for natural protein bars like this one from Pulsin.


Empty Bottle

You can’t bring a bottle of liquid to the carry-on bag control, but you can carry an empty one. And it’s certainly cheaper to have an empty bottle and refill in later than buying a new drink on the airport.



I’m pretty sure it will be sunny in Croatia when I arrive there, so these will be pretty useful. I don’t know why, but I tend to forget about them, and that’s why they are on this list because I will probably pack my carry-on with this post.



I can’t travel without listening to music. I just can’t. I also listen to a quiet music while reading because when I read in public places I get distracted by other people’s chatter.



And, as hinted, a book. In this instance, A Game of Thrones. I finally decided to read the books as well after watching the TV series for about three times already.


And that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed it and see you soon! Also, don’t forget to check out my YouTube channel here.

P.S. Don’t forget your boarding pass, too!

xoxo, S. V.
