I love working in the travel industry because it makes me feel connected to the rest of the world. I never travel without a packable tote, a novel, and a few pens. The pens are especially important when travelling internationally because there are always forms to fill out prior to landing. A packable tote is great to have because sometimes you come home with more than you left with. A good book is a must; I love an in-flight movie or playing games on my phone, but it’s nice to have something to occupy my time in case of technology issues or delays.
