The Best Travel Essential To Pack On Your Next Winter Escape

Weekend getaways are easy to prepare for, but when you’re traveling through multiple time zones, spending hours on the plane or visiting a different country altogether, your packing list will adjust. We recently made a winter escape to Switzerland. Instead of folding bathing suits and shorts, hats and snow boots were placed in my luggage. Whether you are trekking by train, plane, or automobile, here are a few travel essentials to bring for a 7- day trip. One fundamental point that resolves the “what clothes to pack” question is to stick with neutrals or one color family for apparel- this creates many options. Just think, with a little knowledge assembling the perfect carry-on or checked bag isn’t so bad!
