Travel to a country with not so sunny temperatures, and I mean winter? If that is the case, and you have little time preparing, then read through these tested suggestions of what to wear.
For those looking for a great way to start the year, a trip somewhere cold and snowy is most likely in order. Packing for a winter holiday oftentimes poses this challenge: we want to pack warm while keeping the options lightweight and wearable. For us in the tropics, a winter getaway in the early months of the year might be a surprise. But know that in most European countries and even in China or Korea, Winter is still on full swing!
So for most of us travelling from a tropical country to a colder one, a guide of to-dos will be useful on what to pack for travel. Below is a quick list of items to check off of your list before you head out for your icy getaway.
It goes without saying that you need thicker or warmer pieces to survive colder temperatures. But aside from puffy jackets and faux fur coats, do not forget to pack the little essentials to keep you warm all throughout your trip. Before zipping your luggage for check in, throw in cozy (wool) socks, scarves, gloves, and thermal tops and bottoms for good measure. Pro tip: wear your thickest coat to the airport so it won’t eat up space in your bag!
Pack in Layers
A simple travel hack advised by frequent travellers is to pack in layers and roll. Instead of dumping all things in your bag, maximize space by folding your clothes into the smallest layers to take the least space!
Wear winter specialized shoes
Don’t forget to wear shoes designed for tough winter conditions as your regular mesh or knitted trainers will leave you frozen. Keep warm and safe onslippery , icy terrain and extremely low temperatures. Lined with advanced shoe insulation, Merrell’s mid-cut winter boot offers Vibram grippy outsoles and fully sealed waterproof protection.
