Tony's 13 Things I Won't Leave Home Without

Travel Channel asked No Reservations host Tony Bourdain to give a list of the items he wouldn't leave home without. Some of the answers you would agree with, some might shock you.
1

iPad

With 3G and lots of space for movies and downloaded rough cuts. I didn't know I needed one until I got one. But now I need my Angry Birds app for flight delays. Also iBooks.
2

iPhone

Same story. Apple may be evil, but there it is.
3

Laptop

A Mac. I finally gave in after years as a PC user.
4

Headphones

Good ones.
5

Sunglasses

Hopefully appropriate to the "look" of the show. In Boston, for instance, in keeping with the ‘70s Eddie Coyle theme, I went with some very sinister and frankly ugly Ray Ban tinted aviators.
6

Jeans

Comfortable jeans.
7

Clark Desert Boots

Great for airport security and really, really comfortable almost anywhere.
8

Hoodie

A super lightweight Patagonia down hoodie that bunches up really tiny into my carry-on. Great for a cold plane headed to a hot country.
9

DVDs

I have a few new ones and some old favorites I'm considering ripping off for the show. Right now I'm on a Nagisa Oshima, Takashi Miike jag.
10

A Fat Book

For that period on the plane when you are prohibited from using electronic devices. Reading Borges now.
11

Valium or Similar Substance

For long flights and for adjusting to new time zones.
12

Lomotil or Immodium

For obvious regular risks of the road.
13

Kwik Clot

'Cause you never know these days when arterial bleeding could be a problem.
