Travel Gear

When I am flying, driving or cruising I always bring these items.

1. Samsonite Tectonic 2 Backpack: This is a great backpack for 1-5 day trips.  It can hold 5 t-shirts, 2 long sleeve t-shirts, 2 pairs of causal shorts, 2 swim trunks, 5 pairs of socks, 5 pairs of underwear, 1 pair of Nomad Pants (FAVORITE), 1 pair of shoes, two water bottles, 1 pair of flip flops, 1 set of Samsung Level On Pro, phone chargers, and enough space for extra headphones, passport, travel documents, money etc.

  • Dimensions: 8.6" x 13.3" x 18.0"

  • Weight: 2.6 lbs

  • Material: 100% Ballistic Weave Polyester

  • Laptop and tablet pockets/sleeves

  • Strap to secure to carryon

  • Other pockets: 2x side water bottle, top/sunglasses, front/elastic, internal mesh

2. Samsung Level On Pro Headphones: These things were a game changer flying on a plane. With noise cancellation, no more loud engine noise, crying babies, and chatting Cathy's.  The only drawback is you can't rest your head on the wall while wearing them.

  • Active Noise Cancellation and UHQ audio for richer and clearer sound

  • 3.5mm Wired or Bluetooth wireless connectivity

  • Smart Touch, button- free controls

  • Battery Life up to 10 hours talk/10 hours play/200 hours standby

3.  Cole Haan Grand Motion Woven Shoes:  After walking down 587 steps in Santorini Greece and hundreds of miles during our Mediterranean cruise and Caribbean cruise all within a month these shoes held up.  My feet didn't hurt and I received compliments on my shoes.  

4. Tal Vogue Bottle 9oz:  This bottle is a perfect size for traveling.  Stainless Steel and screw on cap.  I don't need to buy water before boarding the plane which saves me $2-3.  Fits in the seat back pockets nicely.  I use it for a phone stand or baseball hat holder on the plane.

5.  ThunderFit Silicone Wedding Rings:  I wear one of these instead of my real wedding band when I travel aboard or during water activities.

6. Chase Sapphire Reserve Card:  I never leave home without it. Access to Airport Lounges, TSA Precheck, Cash Back, Chase Travel. Check it out here: Sapphire

Other Items we use when necessary:

7.  Grunt Style Active Belt: My wife used this everyday on the shore excursions.  It keeps all your money, credit cards, phone safe from pickpockets and from falling out of pockets. Find it here at Grunt Style or if that isn't your style I provided a link to one on Amazon.

8. Mission Enduracool Microfiber Cooling Towel:  These things saved me in Delos Greece.  I wasn't feeling to good on our tour through Delos and thought I was going to be the guy that puked in a 2000+ year old house, luckily my wife was smart and packed these towels. I put one around my neck and rallied. 

9. Drawstring backpack:  These are essential for shore excursions.  Just a matter of who is going to carry it.

10. OtterBox SYMMETRY SERIES Case for Google Pixel 2

11. Travel Fan with USB charging

12.  CamelBak Podium Big Chill 25oz Insulated Water Bottle:  I use these for road trips.  It's always good to bring water on a long road trip especially in the desert.
