After flying 91,144 miles as a lap baby in his first 2 years, Lucas took his first flight in his own seat back in January 2014 (during our trip to Norway). He got some more experience flying again in his own seat in February during our Quick Euro Roadtrip,Our Visit to Malta & Milanand on a bunch of other trips since in 2014.
Although we did bring our car seat on Lucas’s second trip we didn’t bring it to Norway or want to bring it on the flights. We figured that his car seat would be a pain in the butt, taking up precious space instead of giving us extra space due to our third seat.
We were hesitant to have Lucas secured with only a regular airplane seatbelt so we started to look into other options. I had seen a couple of solutions at stores in the past but didn’t think much about them until now.
These pants go on every trip that we take. If I’m not wearing them, then odds are pretty high that I’m wearing (in warmer weather) a pair of Clothing Arts shorts. (I prefer their Adventure Travel Shorts but the Business Travel Shorts are an excellent choice too.)
Back in August I wrote a review of what I’d consider possibly the best travel pants ever.
The pants are from Clothing Arts and are called the P^Cubed Adventure Travel Pants. If you want to be sure to have all or your valuables safe, then these are the pants for you. Just as important is the style, comfort and quality of these pants.
Considering that we tend to fly much more frequently in coach, amenity kits are not something that we get often.
Over the years we were disappointed with our Singapore kits (more a small pouch), really liked our American Air (business & first) kits and loved Lufthansa’s Awesome Oktoberfest Inspired Amenity Kits. There are quite a few others that I didn’t mention but you get the idea…
A little over a year back I wrote a review of the Hoboroll, “a luggage organizer that provides compression of items as well as multiple storage compartments”.
I found the Hoboroll to be very useful when it came to packing for a short weekend trip. With relatively small compartments I found it hard to fit a bunch of my shirt into one. Because my clothes are pretty bulky, I found it to be of little use to me. However, when it came to Lucas this is where the Hoboroll excelled. We could fit just about all of his things into the Hoboroll in an organized way for a 10-12 day trip. Continue reading A Helpful Travel Item Gets Even Better→
