I am the textbook definition of an over-packer. While a majority of that is due to my affinity for clothing, it’s also because I never want to be without something that I need. Especially when traveling or on vacation, I want to be fully equipped for whatever might come my way. That could be a spontaneously free afternoon perfect for a good book, a rapidly draining phone battery, or a domineering headache that limits my enjoyment.
This past summer kicked off with an epic three-week adventure for me, traveling to New Orleans, Charleston, and my own hometown. It wasn’t as if they were leisure vacations per say, but rather jam packed and super fun. We spent most of our time sight-seeing and enjoying the towns. I wanted to take in everything – it’s not everyday you get to walk down Bourbon Street or explore the houses along the Battery. This led to being on-the-go a lot, trying to squeeze it all in. This, in turn, lead to the need to carry a few necessities with me.
See, also kicking off at the beginning of the summer were ever-frequent tension headaches. I started getting headaches all too often, to the extent that I would need to close my eyes or block out the world around me. I learned very fast that going anywhere without Excedrin® Tension Headache was not a good idea.
If there’s anything true about traveling, it’s that you want to be present where you are. Having these 10 items and the Excedrin® products with me enabled me to enjoy myself, soaking up each and every moment spent in these fascinating cities. A once-in-a-lifetime experience is not something you want interrupted by the peskiest of headaches!
