If you’ve been following our blog, you know that we loooove road trips! :) Today I’m participating in a blog hop (details below) and also sharing what I put in my perfect road trip bag. I like to travel light and pack as minimal as possible, but these are my road trip essentials.
My Perfect Make Up Bag – All My Road Trip Essentials:
- Bag / Day Pack – this one is super lightweight and holds everything I need.
- Kindle – I still have this one with the keyboard, but we’re giving away kindle fires! :)
- iPhone – Can’t go anywhere without it.
- Spotify Premium – I activate it on months we’ll be doing more than 2 road trips.
- Collapsible Bottle – Been using this, which folds up nicely or lays flat in a side pocket.
- DSLR – I always bring my 5dmarkIII and 35mm lens, sometimes our 70-200mm.
- Hand cream – So far I haven’t found any hand creams that beat these.
- Sunscreen – I use this facial sunscreen lately for body and face.
- Sunhat – I use either this (better for hiking) or this (for everything else).
- Sunglasses – I have the best bro-in-law, and he just bought me these for my bday!
- Pashmina Scarf – it can double as a thin blanket.
- Snacks – our full post on our favorite road trip snacks.
- Simplified Make up Bag – writing a separate post later on minimizing my daily routine!
- Laptop – for longer trips where we have to work on photos and write blog posts.
