by Ciara Johnson

There's nothing more exciting than traveling to a new place. You can't wait to try the new foods, meet new people, and learn about a totally different culture. However, there are a few things you must endure before you get to the fun parts. Flying is a necessary part of travel, but it can be stressful for some. How will you keep yourself entertained? What should you pack in your carry-on? How will you even be able to sleep? A little preparation goes a long way when it comes to flying. Here are some items you can't fly without, that have totally saved me during long flights.

Don't you just wish you could teleport sometimes? Let's be real: The flying process can seem never-ending. You think I'd be used to it by now as a travel blogger, but I still have my gripes.

You've gotta be ready for flight delays, long layovers, potentially uncomfortable seats, and crowds of other travelers. You can't control everything, but you can do your best to prepare ahead of time. Here are some things you can bring to make the most of your time in the air. (You can thank me later.)
