Even if I am flying domestic, I love to take my passport. It is just so much easier to find in my big old bag. I always have a bright passport cover which protects it and keeps me stylish.
A GREAT BOOK
I always forget to download enough movies or enough episodes of The Wire to me through long flights. On my next flight I will be taking my new book from Janet Mock.
Some people swear by Beats by Dre. I would buy them but they look to bulky and cost too much. I usually just have a quick pair of headphones to block out noise while I sleep.
I'm always cold. When I fly, I feel like it's only 45 degrees on the plane. In addition to dressing in comfy layers, I have to have my very own blanket that is big enough for me to wrap myself in.
I like to red-eyes when I'm flying for 6 or more hours. When I'm ready to go to bed, usually the flight attendants are not. It's best I cover my eyes before I get cranky.
