TRAVEL ESSENTIALS


Friday went by so fast. It's 11PM in Malaysia, and I was running (actually more walking) errands all day. I had to finish by today all the things in my "to do" list. I am proud enough to say that I actually did finish all of them. I ended up finishing them a little late though, but never the less I finished them.

I had to leave my blog post for the end of the day, because I wouldn't have been able to sit and write while at the same time thinking on all the things that I have to accomplish by the end of the day.
So here is my quick post about my travel essentials. I actually fly with a lot of other stuff (I get to bring a 40 kg bag this time!) but I just wanted to share a few that I really need with me.















Water bottle: One key item that I always pack with me is my water bottle. I need to stay very hydrated in my holidays, specially in the airplane now that I am pregnant. I usually bring the water bottle empty, for security check up reasons, but once I get in the plane, I would ask one of the steward to fill the bottle. They always say yes, and I don't have to worry about it later.

Glasses: A few years back, I realized I wasn't able to read clearly things that were far away. I have always had a good sight, but recently it has been declining, specially with my pregnancy. I need to bring my glasses every place that I go. I really hate the feeling of seeing blurry. 

iPhone: I can't go anywhere without it. Before any trip, I try to backup all the pictures in my phone into the computer and external hard drive, just in case any accident or lost. I have so many many important and cute photos in my phone, that if I lost them I don't even know how I would react. Also I like to have extra space for the new photos I will snap in the trip.

Bobbi Brown Protective Face Lotion: Just recently I discovered the amazing products that Bobbi Brown has. I started a few months ago using some of them, like the make up remover and the extra eye repair cream, and I got addicted. I have seen a big change in my skin that I have never seen with all the other lotions. The protective face lotion is perfect for the skin, since it moisturizes and has SPF 15.

iPhone charger: One of my friend show me this small gadget a few years ago, and I had to have it. Its very easy to carry with you, and whenever your cellphone runs out of battery, you just plug it in, and voila. It is really helpful when traveling and moving from one place to another.

Now, I need to finish putting all my winter gear inside the bag because we are leaving tomorrow to NEW ZEALAND!!! Neither Gavin nor I have been there, but we always wanted to go there one day. Since we can't fly home for Christmas (29 weeks pregnant and a 30 hours flight are not compatible) we decided to go somewhere close by, and where we could enjoy nature and fresh air.

We leave tomorrow morning at 7 AM, and I hope I can get some wifi in the places we are visiting to share our adventures in the blog, and instagram
Wish you all a happy friday morning or night, and a lovely weekend.


IT FEELS SO GREAT TO FINISH A 'TO DO' LIST
