So you’re planning a trip, and you think you have everything you need. Your bags are packed, your passport is in hand, you’ve got an unlocked cell phone and plan on buying a SIM card once you land, and your wallet has one or two no foreign transaction fee credit cards in it. You’re all set, right?
Wrong. I mean, sure, you could go and have a lovely trip. But there's one other thing you’ll want to pack (besides a little patience) that’ll help keep you sane on the plane rides, and in the hotels, hostels, or Airbnb houses you plan on staying at. And that, my friends, is a good set of headphones.
A case for noise canceling headphones
I’ve talked about headphones before. Specifically noise canceling headphones. And I still believe they’re a must. Here’s what I said the last time I wrote about them:
Have you ever been on a noisy flight? Whether it was a neighbor that would not stop talking, a baby that didn’t appreciate being forced to fly, or you wanted to get some shut-eye, noise-canceling headphones can be important.
Having said that, any kind of headphone is better than none at all. I still carry the Zik headphones with me on trips. I also take a backup set of the Apple headphones just in case.
Whether it’s to watch a movie on the plane, catch up with your podcasts, listen to some music, finish an audiobook, or try to learn a foreign language, headphones are pertinent when traveling.

Now, with all this stuff you’ll be carrying on this trip, you’ll need something to carry it all in. Unfortunately, not all carry-ons are created equal. My top choices in my next post on the Top Seven Travel Essentials for Your Next Trip Abroad.
