I admit upfront that the topic of travel fashion/clothing makes me nervous. Those who know me will vouch for the fact that I can pack for even an overseas business trip in an hour or so. I will pack two business suits, formal shoes, a few shirts and I am done. Other than that I love it if it is a cold place. That means I only have to worry about my jeans and the down jacket looking respectable, rest of the stuff doesn’t matter!
My sister (who dresses up well) kept buying fancy tops before my UK trips and I would always tell her, “It is going to be so cold that I am always going to wear a jacket or coat! So don’t bother.” I am that kind of traveler. Unlike my sister I don’t spend hours in markets or shopping mall to find the dresses for my trip when I can buy the best of them online through various online portals at the lower price.
On holiday trips I am even worse, my packing would entirely consist of jeans and shirts and if it is a sponsored trip maybe one or two dresses that can be won for formal lunch and dinner. On such trips I only worry with sneakers as they are comfortable for walking and one other footwear that will go with more formal dresses.
Shoes can make or Break a Trek!
But let the talk turn to trekking gear and I may have a tip or two to share!
