Things to Carry for a Winter Vacation

carry-on-only-packing-list-cold-weather-labelled-933x700Packing for a vacation can be very exciting, and if it’s for a winter vacation, you should keep in mind that you need enough clothing to keep you and your family warm. It’s a good idea to start shopping well in advance for all your winter essentials, especially woolen garments, overcoats, jackets, winter weather accessories, etc., so that you don’t lose out on good deals. If you are traveling by air, what and how you pack matters a lot, what with all the restrictions on the number of bags you can carry.

Winter does not always mean wearing bulky jackets to keep yourself warm. The trick lies in covering yourself with layers of clothing, even if they are thin; it’s the layers which trap the heat and keep you cozy. Multiple layers of thin clothes will leave you with a lot more space in your bags than a few bulky coats and sweaters. If you plan on skiing, or are traveling with children or infants, take time to think through what you need, so you do not carry too much of the same item, and jot down what all you really require, before you get down to packing.
