Do you like sports shoes? Do you like running across the airport with your kid strapped to you and a serious possibility of missing the flight? It happened to me when we had to change flight in Delhi airport while flying to Kashmir last year.
Two other things other than God saved us :
- My Puma shoes
- My hubby’s sneakers. He hates wearing formal shoes while traveling. So it’s these trusted sneakers for him.
It was a connecting flight for us. The plane from Kolkata landed at a different terminal.It was raining and we had to run through open spaces uncovered ( the airport was being renovated ) and slippery with rain.
Baby luggage rain and tottering heels would have made it a horror.
The grip and the comfort of these shoes, make walking and running as easy as breathing.
They made me feel like I was Avenger mommy out to get the best of the Airlines. Run at full speed and slide to a stop in front of security check-in.
After having a baby I carry my strappy heels in my check-in luggage and wear sports shoes my most comfortable top and jeans (with a light stole packed in the travel bag for when the AC gets chilly.)
Believe me, you don’t want a sprain on your holiday.
5 Reasons Puma shoe is a favorite
- Unmatched styles for fashion-conscious mommy
- Durability to make it hubby’s favorite
- Wonderful fit with a great grip
- Comes in a range of designs to make us both happy.
- Classic shoes which suit the modern lifestyle.
Their range makes me happy every time.
What else do I have in my travel bag?
I never want to be caught without my faves!
The tablet for my daughter and my Kindle.I cannot travel without these two. That way my preschoolers is happy and occupied in an airplane seat.
One multi charger is a must. Imagine the tablet running out of charge.
Crayons and a notebook.Pens and pencils for all of us.
Wet wipes, hand sanitizers, important medicines, antacids anti reflux OTCs.Pain meds for a headache, backache, sprains.ORS sachet and meds for sudden tummy troubles.Probiotics sachets too.
Few apples, nuts, cookies.Just for the little one.Don’t think I eat this during traveling.Sometimes I eat even more. Travel makes all of us hungry.
My favorite lipsticks. These are my must carry items. You never know when a glam up is needed.A pack of bindi.Compact,lip balm ,comb .
Data cable, solar -rechargeable battery charger.
Portable Hard disk.
Cash, cards, keys. The torch is a must have.
Did I miss anything?
Oh yes, I also carry an anti-mosquito roll on, antibiotic ointment Lacto-calamine and moisturizer.Sometimes I squeeze in a book or two.I carry my pocket Hanuman Chalisa and a good luck charm. Do you get the picture?
These all had to come out during security checks at Kashmir airport. Security is strict. Body scanning, bag scanning and they make you empty your handbag and show them everything. Every little thing! My 10 lipsticks made the security people look grim and others laugh.I wasn’t laughing.I was afraid they have a lipstick limit and will make me bin it all!
Luckily only my manicure set got binned.
Lesson learned. Don’t carry small sharp instruments for cleaning nails in your handbag.
