My Favorite Things For Overseas Travel

I’m an experienced overseas traveler, but last Christmas made my FIRST trip across the pond, with a tiny human (and my husband of course!). We had an amazing time, and as we prepare for our second international trip later this year, I thought I’d share some of our must-have’s!

First, THE STROLLER. We have this Summer 3D Lite from Amazon, in yellow. This color was being discontinued, so I was able to score one for around $40. As far as umbrella strollers go, this one is the JAM! So easy to fold and manage, especially if you only have one free hand. Clare is super comfy in it and we love the storage underneath.

Super easy to fold up on train rides, too!

Secondly–toiletries. Packing these things are like the worst!! I’ve honestly learned to just use what the hotel has when we arrive. Sometimes I will scour the small sized items in the Target or Walmart Travel Section. Sunscreen is for SURE one you’ll want to get before you leave. But here are few ways I’ve learned to pack them:

Caboodle Cosmetics Case

I. LOVE. THIS. THING. I can fit just what I need inside and slip it into my carry-on easily. No more digging around for chap-stick or lip gloss, I just pull this out and the mirror is SUPER handy to have inside!

Also, this Bagail Flat Pack Toiletry Kit is wonderful to have! I’d been eyeing one on eBags for ages, but this one is just a wonderful and half the cost. Saves so much awkward space! They come in lots of colors, too–mine is lavender.



Last but not least, DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT YOUR POO-POURI. Amazon has these tiny travel-sized sprays for as little as $3.76! Be sure to stock up!
