Here’s a 10 minute video on how I pack for travel. Since my first job as an admissions counselor for Gordon College, all of my jobs since college have involved travel, and I’m often asked for tips and tricks. So here is what I’ve learned over the last 15 years of travelling.
This is my first such video. To record this video, I used my Flip UltraHD video camera [amazon affiliate link] and the XShot Camera Extender [amazon affiliate link] I received as a gift from my friend Jon Swanson.
Other things mentioned in this video include:
- L.L. Bean’s Sportman’s Rolling Pullman, Sportman’s Briefcase, and traveler’s blazer (they don’t seem to be offering it anymore but a link to a review is here).
- Apple iPad [amazon affiliate link] (I won from Peter Shankman and HARO!)
- Belkin 5 way plug [amazon affiliate link] (a real hit at conferences!)
- Starbucks Via
- Moleskine notebook [amazon affiliate link]
I must say, TripIt Pro has really made my travel easier. TripIt Pro sends notifications to my phone via text and my email so I know about plane delays long before they’re posting them in the airport. This, and my terrific travel agent at Day’s Travel, has helped me make sure I’m at my speaking gigs even when flights are canceled.
