Favorite Travel Tips and Gear
It doesn’t matter what kind of trip you’re taking. The right gear and advice can make the whole process much easier.
And, savvy travelers can leverage miles, points, VIP amenities at hotels (you can get these through me) to book a luxury vacation for less.
Not only that but more and more we’re seeing people go uninsured so I’ve listed some advice for this, how to find hotel pool day passes, and listed favorite skincare products, jet lag tips, and much more.
We were Expats and still travel a lot
It always takes the right gear and planning.
Frequent travelers like me will get a lot of use out of their gear. There are innumerable lists of must-have travel gear out there, but we’ve included items on ours that have worked for us. Some luxury travel gear was created to solve common problems… noise-canceling headphones, battery packs, and neck pillows come to mind. But other travel gear is all about style, comfort, and making you feel great en route and at your destination.
Various Travel Tips
This is probably my favorite section within Travel because there are important topics like why we have MedJet Assist, jet lag tips, skincare products I like to use on long haul flights and so much more that will help you stay healthy, sane, and safe no matter where you’re headed in the world.
Airlines & Airport Lounges
It’s no secret that we fly in premium class on (usually) oneworld member airlines thanks to a very tall husband, airline miles, and various travel memberships. I review the onboard experiences and lounges when I have a chance. There is a lot in this department that I need to catch up on.
Flying with Kids
My tips for traveling with kids come from my experiences traveling around the world with my daughter at my side. Have all of our flights gone perfectly? Nope, but there definitely have been strategies and gear that helped us deal. You can and should take overseas flights with them, I’ve done it more times than I can count having lived in Hong Kong with a baby (with reflux, too, not fun) who needed to fly back to the U.S. to see grandparents.
