Flying is never fun, we can all agree on that. There is just so much waiting around at airports, often long lines, irritable passengers, and hideously expensive food and drinks – just hope your flight isn’t delayed as well. But other than the main point of flying – getting from A to B – there is one good reason for getting on a plane, and that’s all the fun travel accessories you get to use.
When we say travel accessories, we definitely don’t mean anything that will garner you strange looks, such as Ostrich pillows, air-conditioned shirts, motorized scooter suitcases, and ventilated fedoras (trust us, you don’t want to know). We’re talking about cool and fashionable items that will instead garner you approving looks from your fellow passengers.
So, next time you’re starting to pack for your holiday, if you haven’t got any of the following accessories, then take out those shirts you probably won’t wear and pack these instead.
Noise canceling headphones
Anyone who has flown before knows that planes can get a little loud. There are engine noises to battle, babies crying, groups of raucous partygoers, and maybe even a couple arguing for good measure. In short, it can be very hard to get some peace and quiet. But any frequent passenger worth their salt should do themselves a favor and pick up some fancy noise canceling headphones. It’s hard to surpass Sony when it comes to headphones, and their noise canceling range is full of awesome and colorful designs to meet a variety of tastes.
Something leather and classy
If you’re going to travel, then you might as well travel in style, right? There are a lot of eyes at airports, so it pays to be seen rocking something stylish and sophisticated. Black leather will never, ever go out of style, so it’s a safe investment to pick up anything from a carry-on bag to a passport holder to a toiletry bag in this beautiful material. Montblanc has a lot of gorgeous travel accessories, so they are well worth checking out before you fly.
Sure, you can wear slippers anywhere, really, but if you’ve got a 12-hour flight ahead of you, then there’s no way you’re wearing shoes for the entire journey. But let’s get one thing straight, you’re not wearing your tatty, old slippers you’ve had since 2002, nor are you wearing those novelty monster feet slippers you were given once as a present. Any slippers to wear in public must be cool, which is why the ones from Galet are recommended. They have some great designs for men and women, and look extremely comfortable.
