Light and Easy

Lately I have been obsessing over all things easy travel. The design team of AvroKO sat down with Travel & Leisure Magazine to give some of their favorite tips for a light and easy trip. Above is a case by Nomadic Inc. for the Container Store. Plastic baggies are so passe. Toiletries from abroad include Borotalco powder, Berocca tablets (for fighting jet lag), and Euthymol toothpaste. Photos by Davies + Star.

Solar charger by Solio gives your PDA the juice it needs to make it through the day.

Some of their favorite global treats to pick up included Olive Jam from Cairo's Siwa Organic, Kyoto, Japan's Sugar Coated Peas from Funahashi-Ya, and spiced, candied Guava from Bangkok's Sukhothai Hotel.

Paper soap and shampoo makes it easy to fly through security without all those liquids.

Flight 001 is one of my favorit little stores to drop into and see what is new. They make the plastic pill case and travel chopsticks above, as well as sell the JoeX2 luggage line by Jansport! To add a little taste to your in-flight meals, bring along these little packs of sea salt by Maldon and Choward's Violet Mints to clean up your palette afterwards.

Have you used one of those chargers? I was just curious if they really work or not.

I found some single use toothbrushes at the grocery store check out line. I took them on vacation and they were great. There is a little pellet like thing in the center that has a bit of paste in it. You don't even need water to use it. Perfect for your purse and you won't have an issue with airport security like you do with a tube of gel toothpaste. They are 2/.50 cents.

Sarah - No, but the member of the design team said, "it doesn't get any easier than this", so that has gotta be a good sign!

Karen - I know exactly what you are talking about and yes, they are pretty sweet! I always buy them when I see them.
