"How can you possibly pack light for winter?
Do you have a cold weather packing list?"
Yes, we do have some help here.
Cold weather may seem harder to pack
for, but our cold weather packing list will give you some ideas on how
to pack light even when you need heavy clothing.
As always, remember to color coordinate your travel wardrobe, pack for layering, and make sure everything is comfortable.
We love the Magellans Travel Supplies catalog for clothes that are easy to pack. And it's not just travel clothes. They've got all kinds of supplies, luggage, purses and security items to make your travel easier.
Our lists below tell you what we pack for cold weather in addition to what we wear on the plane....
We wear several layers and our bulkiest shoes, so we have less to pack. Always wear the heavy or waterproof coat that you will want to take on the plane.
And what you'll be doing. Different activities require different wardrobes.
Are you doing something adventurous like cruising to Antarctica?
You can stay warm and still pack light with these suggestions on our cold weather packing list below.
Or are you trekking in the mountains?
When we went trekking in Bhutan, we expected cold...
...but a late snowstorm took us by surprise!
Will you be visiting cities
...where you're apt to go to nice restaurants
...and you need nice clothes?
Are you traveling in the countryside?
--a small tube (or two) of toothpaste
--shampoo and rinse (pack in plastic bags to prevent spills)
--small containers of cosmetics, cleansers and moisturizers
You can take your medications and small amounts of liquids, creams and gels in your carry-on luggage, but remember the security rules. To see our tips, click on these links: Security Alert Packing Guide Cosmetics Packing Guide Guide to Packing Medications
If you're planning something like an adventure cruise to Antarctica, you'll probably have to take wading boots and waterproof/splash pants for those zodiac boat landing.
If you are traveling with a friend as Mark and I do, try to take one suitcase on board and check the other. Always check ahead to see what is allowed onboard your carrier especially if you're traveling at a time of high security alerts.
Don't let cold weather or security alerts stop you. Use our cold weather packing list as a guide, bundle up, grab your passport and get on the road.
Happy travels... even if you don't travel the world... just remember that life is a journey... embrace and enjoy it! Judy and Mark
