What to Pack for a Trip in the Winter

What to Pack for a Trip in the Winter

Taking a trip in the winter to a place that is cold seems like a nightmare in the packing department. How can you pack all your winter clothes into a suitcase? After traveling a few times this winter to places that were cold, I have figured something out that is amazing: your coat covers your clothes. This is amazing because you don’t have to stress out about putting together the perfect outfit. Of course when you go out to eat or get a coffee, you will take your coat off but still 😉

Here is a list of things I have found useful on a winter trip!

Sweaters

Usually one to two is enough, especially if they are a solid color. You can layer them to keep warm while sightseeing the town! I have a sweater dress that is a solid color and so comfortable! It is the perfect winter travel dress.

Solid Shirts

Perfect for layering under your sweater and also good to rewear and no one will know you are 😉 Packing one to two is the perfect amount to save space.

Scarfs

Also another staple to keep warm, but also the mix up your outfits! I usually bring just one.

Pants

I will usually bring one pair that are black or a dark blue.

Shoes

Wear your heaviest pair! Make sure they are water proof and warm. In winter you don’t really need to bring a variety of shoes, but I like to bring tennis shoes in case my feet get tired. Not the best for the cold, but for comfort.

Socks

Bring wool socks if you have them! Walking around a lot outside can make your feet cold! I also like to bring pantyhose that is fleece lined for my sweater dress so I am really warm.

Hat and Gloves

Make sure to bring a hat and gloves to keep you warm. Bring an extra pair of gloves just in case!

 

 

I hope my list will help you pack for your next trip!

I think packing for a winter trip is easier than summer! Do you?

Three Cities You Should Visit During Winter

Three Cities You Should Visit During Winter

For some reason I always think that traveling should happen during the summer. It’s warm out and easier to pack, so it’s the only time to travel right? Not at all! Since living in Europe I’ve learned that traveling in the winter can be fun too! You just have to get better at packing and it doesn’t matter what you are wearing because no one will see it 😉

Some cities are also even better in the winter than summer! So if you are looking for a winter getaway here are three cities that you should visit during winter!

Zermatt, Switzerland

Three Cities You Should Visit During Winter

Picture found here.

Below Matterhorn peak at an elevation of about 1,600m is Zermatt. It’s in southern Switzerland and close to Italy. This city is known for resorts, skiing, hiking, and climbing. On Zermatt’s website they state that there is snow guaranteed 365 days a year! So really anytime you visit here is winter time 😉 Honestly just the view alone is putting Zermatt on my bucket list.

New York City

Three Cities to Visit During Winter

Picture found here.

I traveled to NYC during winter for New Years Eve last year and this city is seriously beautiful! All the Christmas lights were still up and I loved it. Last year it didn’t really snow, which I think would have made it even more pretty. New York City has so much to so. It is called the city that never sleeps for a reason! If you want to read more about NYC check out my post HERE.

Banff, Canada

Three Cities You Should Visit During Winter

Picture found here.

Located in the province of Alberta and within the Banff National Park is the resort town of Banff. With so much to explore in the national park and enjoying hot springs, this town is a perfect winter get-away! To me nothing is better than mountain vies with snow on them and Banff does not disappoint.
