Do you know your travel carry-on essentials? What you need in your hand luggage and what can go as checked luggage for a flight?

Well my mama always said when I was heading to boarding school;

“make sure you take everything so that when you get there, you got everything.” 

The thing is, you cant carry everything in your carry on…Why?

Because whatever you carry must fit in an overhead bin on the flight and every airline has a weight limit for that as well. 

Right now as you read this we are probably 1000s of miles enroute to an amazing Dreamtrip! Did we pack the kitchen sink? Nope…

Everybody we know loves to travel. We probaly have the travel bug real bad…But we aint complaining. We consider this a major blessing. One you too deserve?


By gosh, we have had our fair share of trips, flights, both short and long! What with living in Europe and having family in Africa, USA, Asia…Working in various continents. We get about quite a bit.

Doesnt hurt that we love to travel and are part of a global travel community.

And nothing excites us more than “planning our next trip on a trip…” In otherwords book a vacation from a vacation.  More like book a spa day after a your return trip! Usually stressing because you are worrying about getting back to work, school etc.

Its similar to what we learnt in  a mastermind at one of  our home business events.  BAMFAM…Not a swear word I swear (pun intended). It simply means:

Book A Meting From A Meeting

DreamTrips Travel Club p- Is it For You?

Frankly speaking with all the trips, we have made over the last 20+ years, we have bags of experience with packing like air hostesses! We also have been travelling with our children since they were infants so we know what to pack for children too! And also what not to pack for your vacation or fun trip!

Rule of thumb: make sure you can comfortably carry your bag for at least 2 blocks, without feeling the strain.

Avoid carrying in your hand luggage stuff that doesnt add to your comfort if anything happens that shouldnt! Better still make sure each item you put in your hold all brings you joy!  

Invest in a light backpack with wheels for when you just want to drag it and Check if it fits international carry on measures! We bought some from Aldi UK would you believe it! 

So in today’s post we focus on your in-flight travel carry-on essentials.

7 Ridiculously Sneaky Airline Fees and How to Avoid them|


  1. [ Laughs ] I didn’t know that you had sensitive teeth.

  2. I am very deliberate when packing my carry on. These days you never know if your checked on luggage will get there so it is best to strategically pack that carry on bag.

    • Exactly Mardene. And we sometimes get left behind and our luggage goes ahead of us. It happened to us recently on a trip from Kigali! Not good I tell you!

  3. Lisa Rios

    An essential for me is deodorant and a good book. 🙂

  4. I really don’t travel, but if I have to have a must have, it would be my phone! LOL

  5. Carry-on essentials for me = GUM! lol!! Yep, I cannot live without a piece of gum in my mouth! 😉

  6. Kelly Reci

    This is always and mostly bring out when we get out of town or outdoors. This post is really amazing!

  7. My carry-on contains my makeup/hygiene kit, my medicines, gadgets, and our nebulizer. We never leave home without it. 😀

  8. I cannot survive without my pouch packed with facial wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, and more. It’s definitely always going to be a part of my carry on. I think it’s important that you have all the things that you need during the trip, the immediate ones.

  9. Elizabeth O.

    It usually depends on where I’m going but most of the time you’re going to find my hygiene kit in my carry on, aside from that, I have the usual which is my phone, passport, wallet and all that. It’s good to have the essentials with you in case something’s going to happen.
