Travel essentials for long haul flight - Mini Travel Haul

Hey Guys!

I love picking up new bits when I travel as they get me all excited for the journey ahead. In today's post I wanted to show you some of the cute things I picked up for my holiday to New Zealand for the flight as well as giving you guys a list of what I believe are travel essentials for long haul flights. This is going to be one long flight and as you cannot fly to New Zealand direct we are stopping at Kuala Lumpur for a short while before jumping back on to head to Auckland.

The total flight time is 23 hours. This is the longest flight  I have ever experienced and I want to make sure I am comfortable for the duration of the flight (looking forward to the in-flight entertainment). I decided to pick up a few little bits that are essentials for your hand luggage.

I always carry these things with me when travelling so I thought I would write a list on a few things that you should carry in your hand luggage:

  • Tissues
  • Wipes
  • Hand Sanitiser 
  • Ear plugs (to block out all that snoring!)
  • Journal (to make notes of the adventure)
  • Headphones
  • Sleep mask
  • Hoodie (for when you get cold but also makes an amazing blanket/pillow)
  • Pillow
  • Toothpaste
  • Book
  • Moisturiser (under 100ml)
  • Eyedrops 
  • Socks
  • Lip balm
  • I-pod
  • Deoodrant (under 100ml)

Plus obviously your personal documents needed for travel (e.g passport, boarding tickets, visa, etc)

What are your travel essentials?
