  1. Lots of great links! I really like the travel ones. I almost think people need to pass a training class before being allowed on a plane!

    • I would LOVE if that were a requirement… there are so many things that could be fixed by just teaching infrequent flyers the standard travel etiquette.

  2. Why people (like me) insist on checking their bag for a 1-2 week travel? If I am gone for a week or longer, I need more than just a tiny bottle of sunscreen and body lotion. Last time I tried to only travel with carry-on luggage, I ended up buying both at my destination because I ran out and checked in my bag on my way back. Nail scissors are another problem…

    • I usually just rely on the hotel for moisturizer, and buy the sunscreen at my destination. (If I need more than 3.4 oz of sunscreen, chances are I’ll use most/all of it before I go home anyway.) Check out Road Warriorette – she has some great tips for how to make women’s toiletries work for carryons!
