Every travel situation requires a different set of tools and knickknacks, whether you’re taking a road trip, a red-eye, or backpacking from hostel to hostel. That’s why we talked to eight different kinds of travelers who haven’t settled for the sedentary lifestyle — from professional travel writers and expedition leaders to hard-core nomads (one who’s already ticked 65 countries off of his bucket list) about the special travel accessories that have made their journeys that much easier.
Whether for business or pleasure, travel can be fun, energizing, and exciting — or exhausting, frustrating, and boring. You can control — or at least minimize — many of the inevitable inconveniences with some advance preparation and the right equipment.
Screaming baby two rows behind you? Hotel room next to the elevator or icemaker? Grab noise-canceling headphones or a white noise generator to solve the problem.
Phone dying or laptop battery fading? Battery pack to the rescue! Aching back, stiff neck? Pacable pillows to support your lower back and neck so you can sneak in a few hours of snoozing.
You get the picture — there are products out there that will solve most travel problems with a minimal investment. You can be organized, comfortable, and ready to hit the ground running when you arrive at your destination.
