Travel Tip: Headband

Something to consider on a long—and possibly international—plane flight.

Instead of a dedicated eye shade that you’ll use rarely other than for a few hours on the plane, use a wool hat or headband to cover your eyes and ears, planes tend to be cold anyway.

And if you have earplugs or earphones in, the headband will help them not fall out while you’re snoozing.

Amazing first trip to South America, a week in Montevideo, Uruguay. A highlight of the week was visiting Dodecá—home base for my coworker Matías Ventura.
