Pack the appropriate items. Depending on your travel location and the time of year, a summer trip will generally require cool clothing and accessories and winter trip will require warm clothing and plenty of it. However, those cool or rainy evenings find us unprepared when on holiday in the sun and ski holidays certainly need light weight clothes for clubbing and pubbing. Choose something comfortable to actually travel in, perhaps layers if you are heading somewhere chilly, so you can cool down on the plane and slip on a couple of warm items before arriving at your destination.
For men, loose fit jeans are the ideal clothing for a journey, comfortable yet trendy in a choice of Vintage or Grey. Add a short sleeved Faded Tee shirt or Icon long sleeved Tee shirt worn under a Sabrosa red, white and black checked 100% cotton shirt. A reversible beanie hat such as Jackson, Landon or Thunderstruck will keep you warm and looking the part. A zip hoody like Corporate is both trendy and practical, with fleece lined body for extra warmth. Footwear should be selected with care, for comfort and lightness, ensuring the sizing is just right. A pair of Dasit Skate Shoes with elastic tongue centering straps and maximum impact protection will ensure comfort while travelling or just playing and a pair of Electric Maxwell sunglasses with UV400 are a must.
Women’s footwear includes an extensive choice of Chelsea Skate Shoes, lightweight footwear with all the trendy features. A Billabong Ladies Pivoine white hoody with V front and buttoned panel can be worn with a pair of DC Banshee Snowboard Pants in Black which will deal with resistance to snow, wind and rain, trapping body heat while allowing perspiration to escape. A pair of cool Electric Vol sunglasses with 100% are an absolute necessity on the beach or the snowy slopes.
If you are travelling light, a backpack, such as the McKall or Trooper, will suit your needs with several pockets for water bottle, passport and all those other items you need to lay your hands on in a hurry. Or a split roller travel bag will accommodate heavier luggage. A wallet with flip out ID section and separate coin and note compartments for your cash and cards is essential.
You can’t be too careful when it comes to protecting your belongings. Ensure that your passport, cash cards and important documents are packed out of reach of pickpockets and use a safe on location if possible. Always take out travel insurance including extra cover if you plan to take part in sports such as scuba diving, skiing or snowboarding. Leave an address or contact phone number with a family member or friend and keep in touch via email or telephone if you plan a long vacation.
