Our tips for packing light

Be selective - pick up to 5 basic pieces that you know will be comfortable and practical for the activities you have in mind. A wool dress, some wool tights, a wool cardigan, wide merino wool scarf and a wool layering top (wool thermal) are a great place to start. 

Stick to an easy colour palette that works together and is easily mixed and matched. Think monochrome in black and ivory, blues and neutrals and reds and whites. 

When it comes to packing - place the things you will need soonest on the top. It may seem basic but so many of us forget this key thing! This includes a jacket and a scarf or poncho that you may need upon landing in your intended destination.

To fit more in and to keep your clothes wrinkle and crinkle free, roll your clothes rather than folding them - you'll be amazed how much fits and how much easier it is to find each item! 

Always remember - this is supposed to be fun so don't stress! As long as you have your passport and credit card, you'll be fine.
