Carry-on slash day bag for my flight and 10-hour layover in Brussels. From top-left, like a book:
- 13″ Macbook Air
- Laptop Charger
- Lightning and Micro USB extendable cords – rather than charging each device with its own proprietary charger, I bring these little guys. They can pull out to be about 2 feet long, but coil back into themselves when not in use. Astonishing how nice it is to avoid charging cables in my bag, and largely inspired my almost-totally-cable-free carryon.
- Stainless Steel water bottle (Colorado state flag!)
- Nikon camera on loan from my Dad (Thanks Dad!)
- Mini Listerine, since I always feel gross after a flight. A little mouthwash is really refreshing, I think. It’s new and sealed since I’ve had half-full ones tossed by the TSA without even a moment of hesitation.
- Airborne – because I live in fear of getting sick while travelling.
- Kindle Light – because airplane overhead lights are irritating to my seatmates, and don’t provide enough light to read by.
- Wireless headphones – earbuds really irritate my ears after about an hour of use, plus they have cords, so this is a great way to kill two birds for me.
- These three devices are all portable USB chargers, from Anker, Jackery and Anker, top-to-bottom.
- Not sure what to call this. A blindfold? An eye cover? A nap enhancer? The headband also has a little pocket for earplugs, which is awesome.
- International power converter, with built-in dual USB ports.
- Gamestorming, a great book I wrote about previously – we’re spending this upcoming week setting up a roadmap for our team’s next six months, so the materials and activities in this book will be very helpful.
All this, plus if there’s a bit of space, my standard Dopp kit (deodorant, toothbrush, etc)
