I’ve basically been traveling for an entire month.
Between my Search Inside Yourself seminar, my daughter’s wedding, and my son’s wedding I’ve barely spent a moment out of a car or plane.
With that in mind, I thought that October’s Must-Haves should be dedicated to my travel essentials, for both business AND pleasure.
Actually, one of my biggest goals for Lotus Heart Mindfulness is to travel around the world teaching classes to those who want to learn, so this is a blog I've had particular experience in over the last month, as well as one I hope to continue to revise in the future.
I know I’ve often struggled with fitting everything into ONE carry-on suitcase, so if you need a few tips for that, check out this awesome YouTube video on how to pack a carry-on for 7 days worth of travel!

How many times has your phone died in the airport or while on the plane?
When traveling it can be hard to know when you might have access to an outlet where you can charge your phone, this portable charger fits in my purse, and charges both my phone and iPad multiple times!
That’s KEY for traveling overseas, and being away from power for hours on end… I was especially happy to have it while in Portugal for my seminar and my daughter’s wedding.

Who doesn’t love to have mementos of great trips or family plans to look back on in moments of nostalgia? I know I do!
Scrapbooking and creating your own photo albums may have fallen out of style, but there are plenty of cool websites that will make professional looking photo albums for you!
My favorite is Mixbook, a website that specializes in printing travel photo albums, invitations, calendars, and plenty of other printed products.
Right now they’re running a sale for the fall season for 50% off of the entire store, plus when you sign up you get an additional discount on your first order!
I love having books from my travels around so I can look through them when I want a reminder of all the incredible places I’ve seen, as well as friends and family members being able to look through my adventures at any time.
(Plus, with the holiday season coming up, these scrapbooks could be a wonderful gift for someone you love this year!)
Whether I was driving one state over, or flying halfway around the world, these products are some of my absolute life savers on the road!
