I am headed to New York City tomorrow via a 12-hour train ride! These are my top five items to pack for my long-distance train ride.
* My photo ID - Gotta prove I am who I say I am to anyone that needs to know!
* Chargers for my electronics (and the electronics too) - It is important not to go on vacation without these! Gotta keep all the electronics charged. (For me that will be my phone and headphones chargers)
* My Shokz's OpenRun Pro Bone Conduction Ear Headphones - I don't leave the house without these! I love that I can listen to my music, podcast, movies, etc. but am still able to hear announcements that will be made on the train.
* Comfortable shoes for walking around the train - I will probably wear my Tevas but also bring some socks along in case my feet get cold. No, I will not wear socks and Tevas at the same time! I may even pack some comfy walking shoes to change into for when I get off the train and need to walk a lot.
With these five items, I know my ride on Amtrak will be a comfortable and lovely trip.
