Are you traveling this Easter?

Are you traveling this Easter? Easter holidays are the first big break of the year. Most of us look forward to putting up our feet and chilling with family and friends. How will you relax these Easter holidays? Some of us may go camping and pitch a tent in the wild. Others will head to the beach and soak up the last remnants of summer. Whatever you do, if you follow five cardinal holiday rules, you will not go wrong.

Traveling this Easter? Plan ahead:

Caravan parks, hotels, motels, sea side resorts get full quickly, especially the good ones. Book early, if you are looking for hired accommodation.

Pack light:

Traveling with a truckload of luggage is no fun. After all, you are trying to get away from everyday, humdrum life. Pack lightweight clothes like kaftans. Kaftans fold into nothing and fit into the nooks and crannies of your bag. Caftans lend themselves to layering and can be worn across seasons. Digital printed kaftans can be dressed up and down. Kaftan dresses can be worn across cultures and geographical boundaries. Select crease free fabrics like polyester georgette.

Do your research:

If you are visiting a place for the first time, get some prior information about local weather, law and order, culture. Does your accommodation come with heating/cooling? Does your caravan park provide fresh linen and towels? Speaking from personal experience, I have had to sweat it out without a fan, with the mercury touching high 30 degrees. Pack some scarves. Scarves or shawls are the most versatile travel accessories you can think of! They offer protection from winter chill or summer heat. They can be worn as headscarves or sarongs over bathers. Scarves are handy if you have to cover your head or shoulder when you are visiting religious places.

Don’t be caught unawares:

Pack a dress or two, especially if you are going on a cruise. You may have to attend one or two formal events and a light silk dress accessorised with a clutch bag or designer silk scarf will ensure you are dressed for the occasion.

Travel safe:

If you are traveling this Easter, carry your essentials like passports, credit cards and phones in a secure cross body bag. Replace your precious jewelry with fake trinkets, pompom scarves or colourful beach bags. Do not be a sitting duck for criminals in unfamiliar surroundings. Moderately priced, colourful fashion accessories can add to your travel wardrobe as much as precious baubles, without disturbing your peace of mind.

Last but not the least, have a blast traveling this Easter. Make the most of these Easter holidays.  After all, most of us  may have to wait till Christmas for another good sized break.
