Mary Jean Tully - What I never travel without

November 30, 2016 Tully Luxury Travel

How Mary Jean Tully travels

Tully’s CEO and Founder has been driving the business for almost three decades, taking it from a young cruise agency to an award-winning luxury travel leader with three trusted brands. Outside of her role at Tully Luxury Travel, Mary Jean sits on the advisory board for several leading cruise lines, hotels and travel suppliers, and is a passionate conservationist with a particular interest in protecting the wildlife of Africa. Mary Jean travels constantly for business, for leisure and for speaking engagements – here she shares some of the essential items that are always in her bag.

What kind of bags do you travel with?

I use a Tumi carry-on bag, and for small and personal items I carry a Chanel tote bag (1).

Tell us about the three essentials you always bring with you…

An item of clothing

A simple black dress (2) and some workout clothes (4).

An accessory

My YSL Tribute black high heels (3).

A beauty product

Can I have three? La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe cream, Benefit Roller Lash mascara, and Trish McEvoy lipgloss (5).

What tech do you always take on vacation?

My iPhone (6) and iPad (7), and everything I need to keep them running: an external battery pack, an extra charger (8) that I keep in my purse, and a car adapter.

What do you read when traveling?

I read about my two passions: travel and conservation. I’ll catch up on the latest travel issues, and read anything – books, articles, new research – about conservation initiatives in Africa (9).

What’s the one thing you’d NEVER travel without?

Noise-cancelling headphones. I have a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort and they’re brilliant (10).
