My Top Items List!

Whenever possible I try to take a carry-on suitcase and personal item.  It is very important that they are the right size to fit in as man overhead bins as possible, and the personal item should not be oversized.  My personal favorites are Montblanc and Tumi.

1.  Stow-N-Go -

This ingenious invention saves space in your suitcase and saves your time when arriving at your hotel!  Never unpack again - Simply hang in your hotel closet.  It even has storage at the bottom for laundry, toiletries or footwear!

2.  OneAdaptr Evri -

This small device can charge a USB-C laptop and Quick Charge four USB ports all from one outlet.  It is perfect for hotel rooms or cruise staterooms - Even trains!

3.  OneAdaptr Twist World Charging Station -

Can you tell I’m a techno geek yet?  This guy snaps onto a MacBook/MacBook Pro adapter and charges both your laptop and two USB devices, worldwide.  Simply twist to expose international adapters!

5. Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K -

This device is super compact, easily fits in a carry-on, and connects to most hotel televisions via HDMI.  You can watch your favorite streaming services, just like home!

6. GL.iNET GL-MT300N-V2 Wireless Mini Portable Travel Router -

I love this thing!  It’s so small yet so powerful.  Connect it to a wifi signal and repeat it to your own, which is more secure, or plug-in to ethernet and broadcast wifi.  It will also allow you to connect many mobile phones and turn it into a wireless hotspot.  You can even get a second and use it to boost the wifi signal!

7. Wyze Cam V3 -

This is an ultra-compact wifi camera with night vision that allows you to monitor whatever you want.  It even has a microsd card slot to record continuously or when motion is detected - No cloud subscription needed!  If you get this you should consider getting the wireless mini portable travel router, as it normally does not connect directly to hotel wi-fi.

8. Twelve South AirFly Pro -

This small device allows you to use your Bluetooth headset with the airplane entertainment system.  A must-have!

9. Bose QuietComfort 20 noise cancelling headphones -

These are the best wired noise-cancelling earbuds I have found.  I take a pair on every flight!

10. Airside’s Mobile Passport App -

This is a MUST if you do not have Global Entry or NEXUS… It cuts the waiting time significantly!  You do not need the subscription unless you would like your details saved for multiple trips:

11. Global Entry -

Hands-down, the #1 time saver for international flights.  It gives you TSA Pre-Check and USCIS kiosk privileges in supported airports:
