5 Can’t Live Without Travel Items

My 5 Can’t Live Without Travel Items

When we travel, there are certain things that I never forget at home. Some things just make traveling easier and more efficient. Others are just comforts of home to make sleeping in a new place more comfortable. Here are a list of my top 5 Can’t Live Without Travel Items.

HoMedics SS-2000G/F-AMZ Sound Spa Relaxation Machine with 6 Nature Sounds

This sound machine is a must have when traveling and staying in hotels that aren’t exactly quiet, or ones that are too quiet.  It features six calming sounds, runs on battery or wall adapter and has a timer for 15, 30 or 60 minutes. It’s on Amazon right now for under $20! Find it here.

The North Face Women’s Recon Backpack

North Face Recon

This is probably my favorite travel item. It has a large main compartment with a padded area for a laptop. Mine is 17 in and it fits in there perfectly.  The middle compartment has organizers for pens, chargers, and other essentials.  There is a zippered compartment and netted areas for flexibility. The very front has a zippered small pocket on the top and a netted area under that for easy access items.  On each side, there is a netted area for water bottles or hand sanitizer.  It is available here on Amazon for $74.99. Tons of colors are available.

Panasonic DMC-TS30R LUMIX Active Lifestyle Tough Camera

Panasonic Lumex






This is a great waterproof, rugged camera for under $200! This is our fall back for our Go Pro. It takes great pictures above and below water.  It’s rugged and can withstand drops and tumbles (yep, we’ve dropped it!). You can dive with it to 26 feet or use the dive case for depths of 100 ft. It has 16.1 MP, has video, zoom, image stabilization, auto mode and time-lapse features.  Find it here!

Stream2Sea Biodegradable Sunscreen

Because we are divers, we always use biodegradable sunscreen when on a trip.  It’s so vital to keep chemicals out of our oceans. What I like about this line is that they also make shampoo, conditioner, and body wash with the same reef safe formula. It is broad spectrum UVA and UVB protections, non-greasy and water-resistant up to 80 minutes.  It smells great and makes my hair and skin feel so good. Find it here.

OmStore Travel Passport Holder

Passport Organizer

This wallet/passport holder is a fantastic organizer.  It is roomy enough to hold 5 passports without being bulky in my bag. It has the RFID technology that prevents passports and credit cards from being hacked. There are lots of pockets and compartments for organizing all of your stuff.  It also has a zippered pocket for loose change. It’s water resistant and cute! Get it here!

  1. I need a new backpack – I clicked on your link, you should have it open in a new window, dont want people going away from your site! Plus the pack is now $90 and change!

  2. This is a great list! I’ll have to look into your sunscreen, shampoo, and body wash. I may have to try those. I like that you can drop that camera. I drop stuff all the time. I mean, my kids drop things all the time. Yeah, that’s it!
