L.F. Markey Travel Essentials

It’s unlikely that you’ll find any bigger travel fiends than the ones in the L.F. Markey office, especially in the summer months. Whether it’s a weekend city break or a work trip, the fast-paced travel life can easily become a stressful affair. To help avoid the chaos of busy airports and language barriers, we’ve put together a quick list of things that we think can help smooth out your next trip away.

1. Aesop Travel Kit.

We are pretty addicted to basically everything the Australian body care brand does. For in-flight care, we turn to their unbeatable travel kit, featuring two of our favourite products: Rind Concentrate Body Balm and Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser. Taking a moment to lose yourself in the amazing botanical scents could be the trick to making the sound of screaming children manageable.

2. Sunbuddies

These sunglasses are our saving grace. A label who originally caught our eye with their amazing imagery, we were happy to find out that there’s no compromise when it comes to the quality of the product. We’ve been rocking the Lubna frames for the last couple years, protecting our eyes when in the sun and hiding underneath them the day after a late night of exploring a new city.

3. L.F. Markey underwear

Only launching last week, we’ve already got word that our underwear range has been doubling as impromptu swimwear for L.F. Markey fans. Now, we’re not saying you should wear ’em to your local lido, but if you happen to stumble across a tempting lake or seaside beach on your next road trip and fancy a quick dip, we wouldn’t blame you for ditching the swimming costume.

4. A great bag

The job of keeping your boarding pass and travel essentials in order is an important one. We recommend opting for a bag you really love and ditching the bulky rucksacks. We think this beaded number is perfect for the job.

5. Reading material

Some good reading material is absolutely essential for any kind of travel. We’re really into Kennedy Magazine right now, an independent magazine that offers some great long form features of various creative minds (i.e Thurston Moore, Peter Shire and Pierre Le-Tan), alongside some top imagery.
