    Luv, luv, luv!! The white noise maker and night light is just what we needed last night. Thanks for the suggestions:))

  2. Hahaha this is a clever idea for a post! I’ve always wanted to try out a white noise machine, but I haven’t yet. I also like to play recordings of thunderstorms or rainforest sounds. Those always help me a bit! I love storms! For me they are so relaxing! <3

    There are some great tips on here. I don’t go anywhere without my eye mask and ear plugs, they are definitely travel essentials!

    An eye mask and ear plugs are pretty much the most important thing I pack for any trip. I’m an extremely light sleeper so they are a necessity. I like the idea of the white noise machine. I will have to look into on!

    I practically live in hostels in dorm rooms!! Musts for me are ear plugs and a eyemask. It might be quiet when you go to sleep but who knows if someone will come in during the night and turn the light on and be noisy, they are a must for me, though I always seem to forget my eyemask on the plane!!

    These are great tips! Luckily I can sleep through anything, but sometimes I’m traveling with people who can’t.

    Great and very useful tips not to be so stressed during a trip. I always make sure that the place i booked to stay is in a quiet place and away from noise. White and other noises can be downloaded from Apps store to your phone. No need to get a machine.

    I agree not sleeping when traveling can be awful. Lucky for me I don’t have problems sleeping unless it’s in extreme conditions or if I’m on a 9 hour time difference. Then the trick is to stay up until so late (into the morning) that there’s no way I can wake up at 3 in the morning. I do that the 1st night, then take a sleeping pill the 2nd night (and stay up super late) and then by the 3rd night I’m better and can go to bed at a more normal time like midnight. But I’m a Californian so the time dif is huge with Europe. NYers and East Coasters don’t have it so bad

  9. Sleep-deprived vacations are the worst! I hadn’t heard of white noise machines but will look up the apps for sure. For some reason, I just can’t get used to ear plugs though. 🙁

    These are great. I love the idea of the painters tape as lights drive me insane. I can’t wear earplugs as I find them very uncomfortable. The other issue I have is the pillows being too soft. I do agree as well with asking for the quieter rooms. Noise drives me nuts.
