Silently, like thoughts that come and go, the snowflakes fall, each one a gem ~ William Hamilton Gibson

Love snow? A cosy romantic vacation or spine-chilling winter adventure sports, sounds exciting - right? Imagine sipping a hot cup of tea while you gaze upon the snow-covered land. You can see your breath when it’s cold. It’s fun to see the vapour or steam coming out of your mouth when you talk to people! Winter has its own unique beauty and while it stays with us, plan a trip to experience it in the best possible manner.

Brace yourself and embark on the winter holiday that you truly deserve. Here’s how you can pack smart for your winter trip.

1. Get a wrap jacket

Sweaters are out, jackets are in. From stylish woollen jackets to colourful coats, stay in fashion even when the temperatures drop below zero. To accentuate your style statement, put a lovely pair of jeans and a solid-coloured scarf. Now, you’re ready to conquer the world in style.

2. Stay warm in thermals

The most important winter wear is thermals. Worn beneath the clothing, it’ll keep you warm and protect from outside cold. This way, you’ll enjoy the chilly winters. Set yourself free while you indulge in skiing, snowboarding and other snow activities.

3. Keep your head warm not cool

5. Sock it up

Woollen socks

You can’t rely only on your boots. Remember to carry minimum 3 pairs of woollen socks to keep your feet warm. Avoid bulky socks, try buying light-weight woollen socks so that your baggage doesn’t get heavier.

6. Gloves are always in
