With Christmas just around the corner, trips to a foreign winter wonderland or escaping the European cold altogether are likely to be on the agenda. Winter holidays are a fantastic way of unwinding after a hard year’s work. But whether your destination takes you to snow or to winter sun, there are a couple of often forgotten items that shouldn’t be left out of your suitcase – here’s a handy guide.

Travel in comfort
|If the place is that cold, wear some layers.|
|This is my friend Eva. She's now in Hongkong. I cannot imagine myself wearing those jackets, but of course, I love to see the snow.|
Flights, trains, and long car rides can take their toll, so be sure to pack something to make your journey a little less of an ordeal. Leggings, loose footwear, and thin layers work best to transition between different air pressures and temperatures.
Be ready to wait
|I used to bring a copy of Cosmopolitan magazine during my vacation or travel, but now I settle with books.|
Whether it’s a bus journey, airport lounge or check-in delay, travelling will always involve a large amount of passing the time. You’ll have read that glossy magazine cover to cover in two hours, so pack a paperback(or better yet, a Kindle!) to leaf through whilst you wait for updates over the speakers.
Prepare to dip
|I love two piece swimsuits.|
Even if your plans aren’t taking you to the tropics this year, many holiday homes, vacation rentals, and hotels now come equipped with a pool, sauna, or hot tub for use. It’s never fun to be left out, so be sure to remember your swimsuit!
Don’t forget festivities

Just because you’re not going to be at home, doesn’t mean that you have to forgo the Christmas festivities. Plenty of resorts and holiday destinations will still have some form of celebration going on, so why not treat yourself to a couple of new party dresses at Very.co.uk? Keep designs simple and subtle and pack accessories to complete the look. Whether it’s a function, dinner or all-out party you’re headed to, you’ll be able to dress for the occasion.
Write it down
|A planner or a notepad on your smartphones can definitely help.|
You painstakingly packed before you left, but at the end of your break – whether sunburnt, relaxed or dreading the return home – packing the suitcase usually involves leaving something behind. Write a checklist of everything you packed at the beginning of the holiday, so you can tick the essentials off when you’re ready to leave.
I hope we all have a happy holiday. Thank you for visiting! My last post is about Pasko in Bais. You may try to back read.
