Plane Carry-On Bag
The holidays are fast approaching and with that many of us will get on the plane headed to spend time with friends and family as well as take some well deserved time off on a vacation. With that in mind, how do you make travel more comfortable is one ever existing challenge.
In general, I see two different approaches to packing a carry-on bag for a trip. One, for the business traveller / trip, and a second, different approach, for the leisure travel we take. Let’s see what those two methods are – at least in my opinion
Case A: The Business Traveller
One thing I have learned during my years of traveling on business (all told – 3M miles plus flown) is that you need to be flexible and mobile. Therefore, pack your luggage accordingly – no check-in bags. Which in turn, means, your carry-on is your whole luggage!
Why is that important — well, having carry-on luggage only allows you to change from one flight to another, when things go wrong (delayed or missing flights) – having no check-in bags allow you to be flexible and allows the airline to book you in the last minute on another flight, which can help you make that meeting you would miss otherwise!
So, what do you then out in your carry-on bags? Simple! All the clothing you need for your trip, shoes (dress and sports), your electronics (laptop, chargers, portable drives, adapter plugs and converters, noise canceling headphones), medications, snacks – those are critical – when you travel you may have a challenge getting food if you arrive late and restaurants are closed. What then? How about some great sources of protein – peanuts (sorry if you have allergies)
Case B: Leisure Traveler
Now we are talking something quite different – you are headed on a well deserved vacation. You need to start the vacation the moment you get going even on board the plane. So you have to have all the necessary fun items in your carry-on bag. Start with the noise canceling headphones – bring those as you will have a great time watching a movie or enjoying music….and not hearing kids crying etc.
One of the things I always remember to bring are my multiple cameras – what other way are you going to capture the great moments. The photos from the trip will continue to bring you great memories years later. Plus you can capture great photos of the flight, the sky and may be your family asleep in funny poses… Oh, well do that at your own peril.
