Packing for a trip can be a hassle, especially if you are a business owner, independent blogger or entrepreneur. Your business follows you everywhere. You can’t just check out while you are out of town.

Tools: 
iPad; not my laptop. I am on vacation after all. I won’t be writing on this trip but need to maintain the site.
Android or iphone to help with Instagram; there is no Instagram app for the iPad.
Camera; to take pictures to be used for future blog posts.
Business cards; because you never know.
Notebook; if an idea comes to me while I am in the hotel lobby, I can write it down. 

When you take an international trip, you may land the following day. For example, leave Tuesday but land on Wednesday. You feel a little gross and tired getting off the plane. I like to run to a bathroom and do a quick change, to make myself feel awake.
