As the founder of one of the first snowboarding companies and the Las Olas Surf Safaris for Women, which she currently runs, Bev Sanders has seen the best of the snow and the surf. Her recent travels have taken her to Tuscany, Manhattan, Mexico, Las Vegas–and she’s headed back to Mexico, near Puerto Vallarta where the camp is, next week. Here’s what she travels with:
My carry on is an old Eagle Creek wheelie bag. It has hide-away shoulder straps for trekking- very old school. I’d love to buy a new carry-on, but this one’s like an old friend- we’ve been around the world. I save the bed sheet packages. Great for packing, and perfect for carrying wet swimsuits home.
What are some of your must-have beauty products on the plane?
Alba Suncreen, Aveda Brilliant Conditioner, MyChelle moisturizer and a small spray bottle of cool water (for my face) so I arrive refreshed.
What type of sweater or wrap do you wear?
A Patagonia fleece jacket works when I’m flying to Mexico, but I like black cashmere if I’m heading to the big city.
Any recent or fave plane reads?
Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. It’s packed with insight, but light as a feather. Of course, she was the first American woman glider pilot.
Any music playlist for flying?
I love Let Go by Frou Frou. The song makes me feel weightless. Flying is ultimate escape for me and I dream about it constantly.
Anything else you have to have with you when you travel?
I guess I’m an Apple fangirl. I have a MacBook, iPad, and iPhone. Yikes!
