Long Haul Hand Luggage


When you are setting off on a long haul flight the contents of your hand luggage are important!  A 24 hour journey is never going to be great so I like to try and include as much as I can to make the journey that little bit more comfortable.  Tomorrow I’ll be travelling to Chile and my journey time will be 24 hours so here’s a snoop into my bag…DSC02469

  • Passport and boarding passes ~ Obviously!
  • Eye Mask and travel pillow ~  Key for a light sleeper like me.
  • A new travel journal {Mine is from my favourite shop, Paperchase}
  • A pen ~ To write in the journal and to fill out my landing card when I arrive.
  • Camera
  • Glasses


  • Toothbrush and Toothpaste ~ 24 hours is a long time!
  • Moisturiser and lipbalm ~ To try and combat the dryness to planes
  • Ibuprofen ~ For just in case!


  • IPod and headphones
  • Kindle ~ Loaded with lots of new books



What do you take on long haul flights?

  1. A neck pillow, ipod, book/kindle, snacks, chapstick and lotion are all must haves. Everything else is an added bonus! I like your new layout and header!

  2. I love this! There are all the essentials but you didn’t over pack. I’m a classic over packer, especially now that I travel with a toddler. For myself I’ll bring chapstick, but for him I’ll bring whatever I can think of will keep him occupied, including a shower curtain turned into a road map for toy cars, while stopped over!!

    Great post and nice to meet you
