Packed for CES, What’s in Your Travel Bag? (and See Mine)

My alarm is set for 3am with a departure flight from Abilene at 5:50am, arriving in Las Vegas, for the Consumer Electronics Show, at 8:40am.  Needless to say, I’m gonna be tired.  I’m hoping that I get a second wind upon my arrival in Vegas.  I can’t check in at American Airlines and I’m assuming it’s because I’m getting upgraded which would be OH SO NICE!

I received my Paris Epiphanie camera bag and let  me just say, it’s HUGE and that’s exactly what I wanted.  It holds everything and is a nice looking bag as well.

When I travel, I make sure that all my electonics are with me at all times so it’s important for me to have a good bag.  Since my Paris bag is a camera bag, it’s all padded and holds my camera and lenses beautifully. It also holds my 13″ Macbook Air, iPad, iPod, wallet, magazines, mouse, charging cords, and bag full of goodies that I’ll need.

In my special goody bag, I carry Excedrin, Extra Fruit Sensations (I buy the big pack at Walmart-it’s my fave), a Sharpie, Propel packets, lipstick, and more.  It’s usually just little things that get me through the day.  I also try to keep some kind of bars to eat to avoid wasting money at airports and such.  I really really love the Cranberry Crunch Bars.  The ingredient list is all organic and the flavor and texture rawked!  I felt so satisfied after eating a bar.  I’ll be keeping some of these in my bag for the trip during CES. I’m sure I’ll be getting hungry in between meetups and events.

My most favorite thing to have when I travel is my iPod.  I love to listen to music and zone everything else out.  I have two playlists that I listen to most. One is easy listening when I want to relax and the other gets me pumped and moving and is the one I listen to during workouts.  I’m sure you can figure out which is which;)  What’s on your iPod?

So when you travel, what are some of your favorite things to pack in your purse or carry-on bag?

    I like your bag! Since I finally have a “big girl” camera with a lens I need to find a good bag. I have quite a few goodies I have to carry with me including a laptop, ipod touch and camera.
