Travel Essentials – In My Bag

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”
– Henry Miller

I LOVE traveling. To be able to break out of my routine, getting somewhere unknown and if possible, explore each and every single corner on location. Honestly, a trip of any kind is an opportunity to get inspired, discover and learn so many things from a culture, but one one thing you need and that's perspective. Waste no time and get the most out of everything. 

Below, a list of my travel essentials, because yes it's good to break out of routine and spice up things a little bit but these things, they help too. They help making me feel relaxed, clean and nourished, whether on the beach, NY or the alpes. 

  1. iPhone + Bose earphones – no explanation needed.
  2. Aesop antibacterial / hand cream  – best smell and non-greasy.
  3. by Terry Rose lip balm – hydrates with the perfect amount of shimmer, besides who doesn't want to smell like roses anyway?
  4. Sunglasses (Givenchy aviators)  – classic
  5. Moleskine – writing down the places I went, and the things I loved; basic.
  6. A good read – reading books is the easiest, most productive way to relax.
  7. Red lipstick by Tom Ford in Cherry Lush  – you never know where the wind might blow.
  8. Pratima essential oils – anti stress practices always come in handy.
  9. Leica D-LUX 5 – you cannot compare the quality of a photograph taken with this...
  10. Bottled water + snacks – because I'm the queen of snacks, you'll find pretty much always something to eat in my bag, from sprouted walnuts to an apple, coconut water or a Chia Warrior bar. I love snacks.
