Tips for Packing A Light Travel Bag
Well, if you are planning to travel to a hill station for a summer sojourn, then you need to understand that packing your travel bag the right way is essential. So, there are some tips that you can follow to keep your travel bag light but full of essential items and clothes that keep you always ready to move!
- While travelling to a hill station, you can’t afford to carry more than one bag. So, ensure that your bag is multi-utilitarian. It should have enough pockets to carry your clothes, gadgets, water bottles and shoes!
- Well, we can never guess what would happen in the future, including unfortunate incidents, especially when you are travelling to hilly stations. So, you must carry First-Aid kit materials. But that doesn’t mean that you will carry your huge box of home First-Aid kits in your bag. Remember, your goal is to pack a light travel bag! So, carry some medicines if you have altitude sickness, simple fever, or cough. Do not forget to take some bandaids. You may suffer from bruising, especially if you plan to hike.
- Do not carry packed food and snacks. It would take space and increase the weight of your bag. Instead, try the local cuisines for a change. It would not only decrease the waste but also, make your bag light.
- Packing the right pair of clothes is the most important thing for travelling to hill stations! If not done properly, this can ruin your whole vacation. Also, keep in mind that you can’t carry too many clothes even if you are planning to stay for a long time. And you don’t want to look like a simpleton in your pictures, you need to be on top of your fashion game while choosing clothes for your summer trip.
Let’s see what you need to shop for that would fit perfectly for a memorable hill station vacation this summer.
Which clothes can you go for?
You may be confused about what kind of clothes you need to pack given that you are currently sweating due to the summer climate at your place. So, you may feel like choosing light breezy clothes! But that can be a nightmare when you start to ascend higher altitudes. The climate of hilly areas is chilly, especially at night when the temperature drops to 8℃-9℃. So, your normal cotton clothes won’t be perfect for your hill station vacation! Also, you can’t carry so many clothes in your bag. That’s a big Nay Nay!
So, you need to shop for clothes that you can wear on any occasion, especially streetwear that looks classy and rusty! Also, the fabric should be good enough to withstand the chilly weather. Also, rather than wearing a single piece of clothing, you can opt for layering. So, you can add more layers of clothes or reduce them according to the altitude and weather.
You need clothes that represent your inner travelling spirit which would also be paired with other clothes! This is a MUST! And KRA has a lot to offer you which is designed to suit you travel needs.
