Being on a plane for hours can be pretty stressful on your hair. Sometimes, you might even pick up some static on your hair from the atmosphere. Even if your friends want to hit the town right after you step out of the airport, dry shampoo will liven up your look and make you the envy of your mates!

Comfortable shoes are a must if you’re in a cramped plane and have not much legroom. While you may not have that much space, at least your feet are taken care of with a good pair of shoes! Not only can you use them on plane rides, but also activities like hiking and jogging!

Bonus tip: Get wireless headphones so you won’t have to worry about tangled wires.

We recommend JBL or Beats for sure! You can create a travel playlist on Spotify, and take your listening offline with downloadable songs.

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” — Anthony Bourdain.

Take chances, get messy, and make mistakes. Smile— it’s all part of the journey!
