Whenever I travel, packing my carry-on is very important. However, it sometimes changes – whether it is a long-distance or short-distance flight. Find out what I pack when I have long-distance flights.
Here is my Packing Guide: Carry-On Must Have Items for long distance flights. Find out what to do before an international flight.
Plastic bag with a zipper for liquids – more eco-friendly and handy if you travel often is this clear travel toiletry bag
Passports and documents
Pens and a small journal
Entertainment / Tech Gear
I have my laptop with me whenever I fly, as I can work etc.
A while ago, I thought my tablet is the most useless item I bought in a while – since I can download from Netflix (and thus watch my shows offline) I have found one good argument bringing my tablet with me whenever I travel
Mobile – without doubt, one of my most useful and important (travel) item
Camera– I love taking shots from my window seat – and since I take valuables with me, this is in my carry-on bag
What would a flight be without music? If I love one thing more than traveling it is actually listening to music with my iPod

Comfort / Clothes
Neck Pillow – my best friend when traveling for more than 4 hours
Warm socks which are also stylish
I personally do not use a sleep mask but a must-have for many travelers
A big and warm scarf is my absolute must-have (which I can use for different purposes)
Flat shoes which can be easily taken off
A comfortable cardigan which I use occasionally as an extra blanket
For long-distance flights, compression socks are a must
I have dry eyes and so eye drops are a must for me
Beauty / Stay Fresh
Dry shampoo – though I do not use it normally it is perfect after long-distance flights
Refreshing towelettes – though I think they are not eco-friendly sometimes they are just essential and a must.
Face cream (which I also use as a hand cream) – the only cream I could not live without.
A small cosmetic bag for your makeup
Peppermint drops or chewing gums (though I heard chewing gums are not good when you fly, so probably stick to peppermint drops
Deodorant – I don’t think, I need to explain this further 🙂
Hair ties – I hate my hair open when I am in the plane
Toothbrush and toothpaste should also be self-explanatory
I am normally sick when I fly and always have some tissues with me
So, girls (and boys) hope, this list is comprehensive and all important items are listed. If I have forgotten something leave a comment, so I can add it.
Safe travels wherever you are headed! Arzo
