Homeaway, who I’ve used two years in a row for Mardi Gras (they always come through with amazing rentals), recently asked me about my travel essentials. While my packing habits vary depending on the itinerary, there are a few items that I always rely on to get me through warm weather weekend getaways. My ideal getaway is a quiet weekend relaxing on the beach. Here’s what I always bring.
I like to bring a beach bag that easily folds into my luggage but expands to hold all my beach stuff, a cover up that is easy to throw on and off and sunglasses. I always make sure to have lip balm with SPF because my lips chap easily and a big towel to lay out in the sand. For fun I bring a speaker for music, a waterproof camera for capturing memories in the waves and a frisbee for tossing around.
