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

We asked Anthony Bourdain to give us a list of the items he wouldn't leave home without. Check out Tony's list.

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.
