When you’re traveling by plane, it’s essential to make sure all of your essentials are in your carry-on. You only need to deal with losing your luggage once for you to realize how important it is to keep those must-haves with you at all times! After many years of traveling in my country and abroad, solo, with friends, or for work, I’ve curated a general packing list of items I’ve decided MUST be in my carry-on bag.
How much does it cost to travel to Punta Cana, and is it only 5-star resorts? That was the question we set out to answer upon making our way up to Punta Cana for several nights during our visit around the island of the Dominican Republic.

The exhaustion from my red eye flight to New York from California and 4-hour flight to Santo Domingo seemed to diminish the second I laid eyes on the turquoise water outside the window of my Uber. Even after a long travel day, flight delays, and a language barrier mishap at the airport (I ordered a Diet Coke in Spanish and was given a beer, which shows just how good my Spanish is), the aquamarine, navy, and cobalt shades of blue faded into each other and danced before my eyes. Driving from the airport into the capital is a friendly welcome to the Caribbean, as the palm tree-lined road follows the south coast of the island.

I’m gearing up for a work + travel opportunity in Central America soon, and naturally before any trip longer than a couple of weeks, I get an itch to clean out my closet. Something about traveling makes me want to get rid of clutter so I can come home to a clean, relaxing space!
I saw a blogger post about Poshmark on their Instagram page and decided to check it out.
