However, unreliable (and heavy) travel luggage, crying children and a crusty outlook on life after a 22-hour flight makes travelling less than ideal. When traversing the globe, having your travel necessities, packing light and being comfortable is key.
From tangled up cables to combating screaming infants onboard planes, your travel woes become almost non-existent thanks to these well-thought, practical travel gear. You can finally enjoy a truly stress-free vacation.

With these pair of headphones, screaming infants and snoring neighbours will no longer keep you awake the entire flight duration. Just remember to keep an eye out for the important announcements, though.
