Winter is the most ideal season for enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and warm soup. However, it is also possible that you spend this winter by travelling to your favorite places especially after being limited to do so for these past two years. With how the situation with pandemic is going better, today you can travel to several places that are opened for visitors. However, travelling during winter is not the most ideal thing. Hence, you need to gear yourself with the right essentials to pack.
What to pack for smooth winter escape
Travelling during winter means you need to pack more clothes or heavier clothing to survive the extreme weather. However, there is also benefit of travelling during winter. It is that anyone will see the very outer layer of your outfit. You can just pack clothes that can withstand being worn over. Hence, you don’t really need to pack too many clothes. And here are most important essentials to pack for your winter vacation:
It is important to pack the right clothes so that your body will stay warm during cold weather. You can also opt for multiple layers such as by packing scarf, padding jacket, sweater, vest, etc. Make sure to also pack one or two hats. You can also pack one or two t-shirt to get it layered with thicker clothes. It is best if you pack collard shirt or turtle-necks to keep you warm. Pack appropriate clothes for doing winter sport if you plan any.
Winter sport gear
If you plan on doing many outdoor activities or winter sports, make sure to bring proper gears. Of course, you can also save some space in your luggage by choosing the sport gears from rentals. However, you can save money if you just pack essential sport gears and pack it easily in your luggage. You can also use it anytime you want without time limit.
Don’t forget to prepare and bring your travel insurance documents to cover you from unexpected emergency during your trip. Not to mention that travelling during winter is risky. It can make you more prone to accidents and injuries.
You need a day bag to keep all necessities during your exploration such extra layers, phone, snacks, wallet, camera, etc. Make sure to bring the one that has big enough space for you to store all your essentials for the day. However, make sure to not put in too many things you won’t need.
It is necessary to pack moisturizer since winter tends to be cold and dry at the same time. Your skin will suffer from extreme dryness if you don’t take care of it properly. Pack moisturizer for your face and body. You can pack the old good one ointment, Vaseline, to avoid parched skin. Then, pack a chapstick since lips are the easiest to get dry. Also, don’t forget to pack SPF even though it’s winter because UV rays in winter still causes damage to your skin.
