Travelling on a plane from cold to warm country [What to wear]

One of the ways people like to have good time is travelling. Whether it is a road trip or flying by plane.

Now like everything in life, You have to plan and make a good checklist to minimize all of the inconveniences that may happen during your voyage.

One of those problems is choosing what to wear, Specially if you are traveling on a plane from a cold to a warm country.

A good practice is to always have a Scarf so that if it is cold you can wear it if not you can just store it away easily.Wool Sweaters are your best friend considering they are made to keep you cool in hot weather and got in cold weather.

Running shoes are also great since they are made to be worn in all weathers. Long socks are encouraged as long as they are not too thick.

Here is a list of things to consider to make it easier for you:

  • Long Socks.
  • Running Shoes.
  • Wool Sweater.
  • Scarf.
  • Headgear (Cap, solar shades).

11 Travelling advice for a better trip

1- Write down the address of your accommodation before you arrive

What happens if you arrive in a city, go to grab your email confirmation for your accommodation, and your phone and laptop are out of battery?

I always make sure I have a hard copy of my guesthouse name and their address, as well as directions if I won’t be taking a taxi.

Once I arrive, I’ll grab one of the hotel’s business cards, so I’ll always know where I’m staying, and can show it to locals to ask for help with finding my way back.

2- If you live in jeans normally, travel with them, too

So many people will tell you not to travel with jeans, but if you wear jeans all the time at home, you’ll want to wear them while travelling, too.

I didn’t start travelling with jeans until my second year of travel, and man, I missed them so much! They’re not *that*  bulky so you really don’t need to worry about the extra space and weight.

And in many cities in Europe, you’ll want to wear jeans to fit in with the locals — you don’t want to look like a grubby backpacker in Paris!

3- Back up everything in multiple places

Imagine how you’d feel if you lost every single photo from your trip.

You really don’t want that to happen, so back everything up, in multiple places. My tech journalist boyfriend always reminds me that anything that’s stored in one place is something you don’t mind losing.

I keep copies of my photos on my laptop, back all of my photos up to an external hard drive, and use Crashplan to backup the entire contents of my laptop to the cloud. I highly recommend using the latter!

4- If you’re not sure if you should bring it, don’t

The lighter your backpack, the better. If in doubt, leave it behind. Trust me, you can buy pretty much anything you could possibly need in most places around the world.

You’ll soon learn that all you need when you travel is a change of clothes, some money, and a passport. Everything else is adding to your comfort.

5- You need a travel towel

I love travel towels so much that I even use mine when I have actual bath towels as an option! Travel towels are quick-drying, incredibly lightweight, and fold up so small! I never travel without mine.

6- Don’t change your currency at the airport

That’s where you’ll get the worst exchange rates.

7- Start saving early and bring more money than you think you’ll need

It’s good to have a budget to stick to, but most people tend to go over. Start saving as soon as possible (like, now) and aim to bring more money than you think you’ll need.

The more money you have, the more you’ll be able to treat yourself to nicer accommodation, splurge on fun tours, and not spend your entire trip worrying that you’ll run out of cash.

8- Have a health checkup before you leave

Visit your doctor and dentist for a checkup before you leave.

The last thing you want to happen is for you to set off and discover two weeks later that you need to get a filling in India. Not that I’m speaking from experience here…

9- Travel with a toilet roll

Grab half a roll, squash it up, and keep it in a sandwich bag in your day-pack. Long bus journeys in developing countries often stop at squat toilets where there’ll be no toilet paper.

At which point, you’ll be unbelievably grateful you have some of your own.

10- Read up about local customs before you go

You don’t want to offend anyone while you travel, so make sure you’re aware of any offensive gestures or behaviour before you arrive.

As an example, in Thailand, women shouldn’t touch monks or hand them anything, you shouldn’t touch the local’s heads, say anything bad about the royal family, use your right hand for passing people things and paying, or point your feet at someone… Do your research!

11- Use an incognito window to book anything

I’ve personally experienced this! If you’re booking flights or accommodation, open an incognito browser window when it’s time to make your booking.

I’ve seen prices gradually increase for flights as I kept checking them, only to watch them drop when I used an incognito window.
