What is in my travel bag?

Why do I travel so much?

As many of you might have recognized, I am traveling at least every two weeks. The company I work for has one office in Frankfurt and another one in Munich. I am in charge of both offices, and my job requires that I am on site every other week. Of course, this is not the only travel I do. I love exploring new places, learn new cultures and meet new people. When I stay overnight I usually carry my travel bag and a small suitcase.

What is in my travel bag?

If you travel a lot, you will get used packing your bags, and you will soon discover what your essentials are and which things are not necessary. Today I will share what you can find in my travel bag when I travel nationally. Travel bag = hand luggage/ handbag. If I am not attending any function or dinner, I won’t bring an extra purse with me.

Isn’t fabulous what this medium sized bag holds?


Dental kit, lip care, lipstick, hand cream, hand sanitizer, perfume, hair brush, hair band. And yes, since I travel that much and this includes air travel too, I carry my cosmetics in see-through bags. I like to avoid repacking at the airport.

Cosmetic essentials when traveling

Technical equipment

Charger for iPhone and Blackberry, charger for Laptop, earphones, battery pack and Laptop. -As we are all human, I forgot to pack my laptop charger and my earphones. It is only a one day travel -I will survive. At the end of the day, it is normal that I always lack one or two items.

travel gadgets

Apple Macbook, Blackberry, power bank and charger cables.


When I travel, I always carry a water bottle, tea bags, and a snack with me.

 Glasses and Sunglasses

Usually, I wear contact lenses. When traveling, I always bring my glasses and sunglasses with me. My contact lenses cleaning kit is in my suitcase of course. Additional contact lenses too.

What are your travel essentials?

      Hi Wendee,
      after repacking several times at airports and begging for a plastic bag, I found this as the best solution for me.
      Have a fabulous day.

    First off, I love your Chanel carryon, it’s so cute! I have to get some clear bags, like your Sisley, which I’m sure makes checking in that much faster and smoother! Thanks for sharing and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

      Hi Agnes,
      I completely understand you. I started taking notes of the things I brought with me but didn’t use. After three strikes I never packed them again.
      Love, Esther

      H Allie,
      thank you so much. This was my inspiration, I love to watch „what’s in my bag“ on youtube. Have a fabulous day. Love, Esther

    You are such a neat little packer! I love that you bring tea bags along with you. A lot of the hotels I have stayed at just don’t have the flavours or varieties I like so this is a genius packing move.

    Your job sounds like there is never a dull moment btw! Love that Chanel bag for travel.

    Esther I’m in love with the Chanel Bag, but can’t find it – can you link to it by any chance!? Love that you get to travel so much with work. I alsokep all of my cosmetics in non-disposable travel bags, it’s so much easier.
    Do you use face mists onboard the plane? I find they’re such a great way to feel refreshed!
    Speak soon love.

      Hi Cyran,
      the model is called Deauville. Mine is two years old now. This color combo is not available this year. But they had a beautiful dark gray with black embellishment.
      My friends always laugh at me when they see my „make up bags“. I used to carry face mists, thank you for reminding me. I should use them again.
      Have a beautiful day. Love, Esther
