2012 is the year of travel for me, mostly to NYC to visit the ladies (and ride the library ladder!), but I also have trips scheduled to LA, Boston and Maine, among others. Before I began traveling so much, I had romantic notions of what it would be like to jaunt off and explore these cities on my own. As soon as the first pair of socks hit the suitcase, however, reality quickly set in: traveling is a logistical gauntlet! I’m not saying I don’t enjoy it, but there are innumerous details one must consider, and packing properly is, in all seriousness, so vital to preserving one’s sanity.
This week on My Life Scoop, I’ve rounded up accessories and gear for fun travel destinations, but some of these pieces could easily be your commuting essentials, as well. Outfitting yourself properly for the place you’re headed sounds like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many times I’ve put myself in the position of suffering through a trip with uncomfortable shoes, unwieldy luggage and poorly protected devices — sorry, camera :( If you have any trips on your calendar, I hope you’ll check out my lists for some inspiration.
