How I Create My Happy Place on an Airplane

My husband and I have a smallish obsession with travel. {Who's with me? :) } 
I think most people would agree that fewer things are a better way to spend your money than experiences. This year we will take 8 round trip airplane rides (not counting business travel or travel between destinations). 

For me the vacation begins once you are at the airport. And the best way to kick it off is with a visit to an airport lounge. Lounges usually have comfortable seating, private bathrooms, power sources to top off all your devices, free snacks/meals and free alcohol. We take full advantage of our Priority Pass membership. It's such a nice getaway from the crazy airport terminal.  Cheers to that!

Once I'm on the plane I will immediately put my noise canceling headphones on and begin a movie (a romantic comedy that no one in my family appreciates appropriately) or I'll read a new novel on my kindle. Settle in with some skittles and have my lockable water bottle that doesn't leak with altitude pressure readily on hand.  I'm loving these new oversized scarfs from jcrew factory that are super sized and perfect for a light blanket on the plane. 

What are your airplane must haves?
