-       Osprey backpack: my new staple for long flights
-       Gucci wallet for money and credit cards
-       Passport (international flights only)
-       Suica card (train pass for Japan trips only)
-       iPod (yes I'm still pretty old school)
-       Laptop
-       Notebook for handwritten notes
-       Earplanes for air pressure
-       1 book or kindle (for this trip, I am reading Memoirs of a Polar Bear by Yoko Tawada)

-       Camera

-       iPhone
