Tony's 13 Things I Won't Leave Home WithoutTravel 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.
iPadWith 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.
iPhoneSame story. Apple may be evil, but there it is.
LaptopA Mac. I finally gave in after years as a PC user.
SunglassesHopefully 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.
Clark Desert BootsGreat for airport security and really, really comfortable almost anywhere.
HoodieA super lightweight Patagonia down hoodie that bunches up really tiny into my carry-on. Great for a cold plane headed to a hot country.
DVDsI 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.
A Fat BookFor that period on the plane when you are prohibited from using electronic devices. Reading Borges now.
Valium or Similar SubstanceFor long flights and for adjusting to new time zones.
Lomotil or ImmodiumFor obvious regular risks of the road.
