When you travel as much as I do, you soon realize the importance of being comfortable during your journey. The longer your journey is, the more important this becomes. If you are on a long flight, train or coach journey you need to feel comfortable. Here are a few tips to help you to ensure that is the case.
Wear Soft and Flexible clothes
The way you are dressed for your journey will have a big impact on how comfortable you feel. Typically, traveling in a pair of jeggings instead of a pair of thick jeans is the better option. Generally speaking, the softer and more flexible your clothing is the more comfortable you will feel. There is nothing worse than having to sit in the same position for hours while wearing something that cuts into you.
You also want the clothes that you wear to be loose-fitting. It is no good looking like a fashion diva at the airport if you feel uncomfortable on the plane.
Choose Wrinkle-Resistant Fabrics
If you want to look your best when you arrive at your destination, do not to wear clothes that wrinkle easily. You can find out which fabrics work well for traveling in, by clicking this link.
Think about the Weather
In most cases, there is going to be a significant difference between the weather at your destination and your departure point. You need to bear this in mind and dress accordingly.
Dress in Layers
A great way of dealing with this potential issue is to dress in layers. If it is cold at the airport you will be thankful that you are wearing a cardigan and a coat. At the other end, all you need to do is to take them off to reveal a short-sleeved top. If you are planning to peel off some of your travel clothes on arrival, make sure you leave enough space in your travel bag to accommodate your cardigan and other items.
Be prepared for Delays
It is also wise to be ready for travel delays. Our strange weather and the fact that many transport hubs are stretched means that delays are becoming more common. So, pop some clean underwear, a fresh t-shirt, and basic toiletries into your hand luggage. Having a small packet of wet wipes in your pocket is also a good idea. Typically, when there are delays the toilets get very busy, so there may not be any soap for you to wash your hands with. Wet wipes solve this issue and enable you to wipe over other areas of your body, so you can stay relatively fresh and clean. Also, if you take medication, carry a few days’ supplies in your handbag.
