What to pack for a cold-weather vacation? – Winter Travel Destinations Around the World.

Winter is a magical time of year as our favorite destinations are changed into completely new snow-covered landscapes! Traveling to winter destinations can be very, very enjoyable, but you have to do it right. You want to be warm; you want to be dry; those are the two key things. So, follow the tips and tricks for better winter travel. 

Tips and Tricks – Winter Destinations

Waterproof boots. 

These are going to be your top shoes. They may not look super stylish, but they’re going to keep you dry and warm. And spray your waterproof boots with waterproof spray to keep them even more waterproof. In case your feet do get wet, bring two plastic bags with you at all times. When needed, wear them under your socks. 

Umbrella

If you know, there’s going to be heavy snowfall in your destination, and you want to be using a camera. You want to be filming and taking pictures, and sometimes you don’t want your camera out in the snow the entire time because water damage can destroy your camera. So, if you can afford the space, you could bring a small umbrella. 

Get Backpacks

If you’re going somewhere with snow and you don’t want to be dragging around a suitcase all over the snow, dragging snow in your hotel room and your place, then bring a backpack. Get a backpacker’s, and store all the stuff you’d be carrying around in the snow on your back, so it doesn’t get wet. 

Thermals

Thermals are going to be your best friend during your winter travels. Thermals are super light, easy to pack, they don’t take up a lot of space, they keep you dry, and they keep you warm. They are items of clothing, they’re thin layers that you wear as the base of your outfit, and then you pile other clothing on top. 

Winter Jackets

– No need to go overboard when it comes to packing clothing for winter destinations. Because for the most part, you need to be wearing your winter jacket. So, please bring a few hats, a few scarves, and jewelry, and that is what changes your look and saves space in your luggage. 

Heating packs, 

They are very affordable, you can even find them in some dollar stores, and they keep you warm. Oh my gosh, they will come to the rescue when you need them the most. So basically, they’re these packs that you shake up, you throw them in your gloves, you throw them in your boot, and they heat up, and they keep you nice and toasty. They are a lifesaver sometimes. 

Pack Ziploc bags of any size. 

Ziploc bags come in handy for many things. One thing is to separate your wet and your dry clothes. So if something happens to get wet, if your gloves are wet, your hat is wet, your socks get wet, you can put it in a Ziploc bag, separate it from all your dry stuff, and you can put a silica gel inside that bag to suck out any moisture. 

Most Beautiful Travel Destinations in Africa

Africa is home to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world. From luxurious hotels to sprawling wildlife and cultural reserves, this continent has it all. Beautiful beaches, lush forests, and warm weather are just a few of the things that make Africa so appealing for travelers from around the globe.

Here are some of the most beautiful spots in Africa.

Victoria Falls: This is one of the best places to see wildlife on foot, as it’s home to large mammals like elephants and lions. The waterfalls themselves are also spectacular, with a rugged edge that juts out into space and seemingly endless falls below.

Egyptian pyramids: These were built over four thousand years ago by our ancestors for reasons we may never fully understand – yet they still remain impressive today. There’s something about these massive structures that just speaks to you, whether because of their sheer size or history or both!

Kruger National Park: Watching African wildlife up close can be an unforgettable experience but this park takes things even further thanks to its  massive size. This is one of the largest game reserves in Africa, and home to a variety of different species you’re unlikely to see anywhere else!

Cape Town: The old town is worth visiting for its picturesque harbour alone; but take some time out from the city’s hustle and bustle by walking up Table Mountain or exploring Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. Beautiful scenery awaits around every corner.

Samburu Reserve: Looking for an African safari experience? It doesn’t get better than this – you’ll find over thirty thousand square miles with beautiful landscapes that will have your camera clicking away nonstop!

Nairobi National Park: Home to lions, giraffes, zebras… the list goes on. The park is worth visiting for its excellent animal viewing opportunities and limited human interference, making it one of the most well-preserved parks in Africa.

Sossusvlei: This sand dune desert has been called “the world’s greatest travel photograph” – and we’ve got to say they’re right! From a distance the mountains seem like mirages as you look out over miles of untouched white sands that shift with each gust of wind.

Serengeti National Park: Legendary safari destination just north of Tanzania, this park is always busy but never overcrowded thanks to strict controls on visitor numbers (for both conservation purposes and safety). Animals are plentiful here, from lions and leopards  to buffalo and zebras, all of which are seen on a typical day’s game drive.

The Western Cape Province: South Africa’s most popular tourist destination, its location at the southernmost tip of Africa means it has some excellent coastline to explore as well as fascinating wildlife reserves like Kruger National Park.

Drakensberg Mountains: One of our favorites places in Southern Africa thanks to their dramatic beauty and rich history; these mountains form part of  the Great Escarpment, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that runs all the way from East Africa to South Africa.

Magical Mountains of Morocco: This is where you can find some of the most photogenic scenery in North Africa and Middle East; two must-see sites include Mt. Toubkal (the highest peak in North Africa).
