We've all read or heard the news about all the snow stranding travelers in airports. Do you travel with some helpful items in your carry on luggage?
I'm not advocating a HUGE carry on like some people try to stuff in the overhead bin. I'm talking about a few necessary items that could help you get through a few hours of delay time.
Pack a few granola bars or a bag of almonds. Include some 3 ounce items in a resealable bag...hand sanitizer, lotion, lip balm, toothpaste. Make sure your cell phone includes your airline's phone number or web site. Include the charger for your cell phone. Toss in a deck of cards or a magazine. Add or wear a shawl that could double as a blanket or pillow.
Think about what would be useful to you in case you need to chill out in an airport for a few hours.
This may not help if you are stranded for days on end...but could help for a shorter amount of time. What would you take?
