Spending Christmas and New Years in Washington with the ones I love is going to be truly splendid. Navigating congested airports during the busiest time of the year to get there is the opposite of fun.
To make the experience bearable, I always pack a few essentials in my carry-on. The fiance and I take the late flight up today, and I'll be relying on some hot jams, shelter mags, hydration and a soft bedding combo to get me through the three-hour and 10-minute trip.
What are your must-haves while you fly the friendly skies? Whether you're going 2,000 or two miles for the holidays, may all your travels be safe and happy.
