I travel a lot! The more I travel, the more of a need I have to keep a bag packed with items I need to have with me. One thing that many of you watch me to yearly is take large trip with my entire family..we are talking 12-20 or more. We have a blast! Last year, we all cruised on the Disney Fantasy, this was a first cruise for my entire family (except for my husband and kids). My husband and I had a connecting room to my in-laws (this is something I like to recommend). My mother in-law really surprised me when she pulled out battery operated indoor motion sensing lights out of her luggage. I watched her as she placed them in the walking path from each sleeping location to the bathroom, as well as one in the bathroom.
Stop right here!
Clearly she listened when we had our planning meeting because I stressed how dark it is in those rooms should you need to get up to use the bathroom. Next, I also stressed how hard it is to work the lights when you are half-asleep. Great job Mom!
The cool thing is, these lights only illuminate when you walk in their path, then they each turn off as you pass through them. This makes for a very safe way to the bathroom at night!
Since that trip, battery operated lights come with me on ever single vacation. Not only are they good for cruising, but they are great for travel in general.
I don’t add affiliate links to our site so you will have to do a little search on your own. However, amazon does have them in a pack of 2 to 3..you can search, “battery operated motion sensor night light.”
