Christmas is right around the turn of the calendar, and maybe you are planning a trip to Europe or Canada to spend the holidays. Whichever winter wonderland you decide to crash for the season, it is imperative that you do not find yourself woefully underprepared.
With all the excitement going on, it is easy to forget that winters are still winters and will make you uncomfortably cold. If you are to make the most of your winter trip, you are going to have to learn how to pack proper. Luckily for you, Naperville’s Airport Limo Service made you a tip list on how to pack your bags the night before you hit the airport on your next winter trip vacation!
Start with the fundamentals
Of course, the very start of every packing bag would be the underwear. Regardless of where you’re going—a winter wonderland, a scorching desert, even a swamp for whatever reason—underwear should always be first on your list. Wearing layers of clothes does not give you reason to discard the undies. Speaking of layers of clothes…
Think of space
What keeps the warmth in better than clothes? More clothes! But before you start packing 12 bulky sweaters all at once, think about carrying capacity. Rationally, you will not going to be able to carry a lot of bulky clothing. It is better to bring a bulky sweater along with your other long-sleeved tops. Besides, it is not like you are going to be outside the entire time. Other than your clothes, your hotel’s heater should keep you snug. It keeps your baggage light and your body warm.
When the temperature hits that line under 0, a single gust of winter wind will be ruthless, especially to your exposed head. If you want to keep yourself warm, keep your head warm! A good winter hat should shield your ears and your nape from freezing, though you can bring a scarf as well if you have the extra space.
Keep those feet warm
Footwear is heavy, so remember to not go overboard here. A single pair of boots is fine, they are big, fashionable, and will keep your feet from getting frostbites. You are going to have to pick your socks carefully too. Pick a pair or two of warm, lightweight socks that will take less than a quarter of your luggage. Remember to wash your socks, and do not be afraid to use the same soap you use during showers!
Never let your hands go cold!
If there is any part of your body you do not want freezing, it is your hands. They take care of you, so take care of them as well! Keeping with the theme of packing light, find something waterproof and thin. The 21st century has introduced some remarkably made gloves that give just as much, if not better, thermal protection than those massive fur mittens, so get your hands (no pun intended) on a pair or two.
What NOT to bring
Remember, the boots should be the only thing heavy in your luggage, so anything heavier is generally not worth it. Do not bring anything that takes up half the space of your luggage either. If you have a huge fur coat that you desperately want to try out, but calls a third of your luggage home, then you better wise up.
It is easy to tell what you should and should not bring. The only thing stopping you from bringing that unnecessarily big fur coat is temptation.
And that was a quick tip list on how to pack your bags for your next winter trip, provided to you by Airport Limo Service!
