Thankfully Feet Do Travel are here with some tips and advice to help you make the right choices so you can be stylish and comfortable on your next adventure.
First on our list must be a good quality pair of sun glasses. You should definitely opt for polarised lenses, particularly if you are going to be driving. It’s crucial that you can see clearly even in extreme levels of sunlight.
A fact to consider is that millions of shades get lost in the ocean every year. If you are adamant that you must wear your shades while swimming or jumping into waves, make sure that you invest in a strap for your sunglasses. This way you’ll reduce the chances of losing an expensive pair of great glasses.
If plan to go swimming on your next trip, make sure you buy the right swimwear, as wardrobe malfunctions can be embarrassing! Men don’t have as many options as women when choosing what swimwear to use, but they can still find an option which is stylish and comfortable. Ideally you should take at least two swimsuits or pairs of shorts. This will ensure you’ll always have one pair that is dry so you won’t need to worry about missing out on a pool day.
For men, finding swim shorts with zipped pockets is a great option. These days, most personal tech such as watches or phones are waterproof, so there’s no need to panic, but make sure you check the level of water resistance of anything you take with you.
Choosing the right footwear can be key to travelling comfortably, so spend some time thinking about what you will need from your foot attire during your trip. You need to think practical here, if you are walking through an airport then you don’t want to be uncomfortable. Similarly, you don’t want anything too clunky or heavy if you are sitting on an airplane for a long period of time or walking the sands of the Sahara. This can make your feet hot and sweaty and it’s never a good idea to take your shoes off on an airplane.
Before you venture off, you will need to think about what activities you will be doing while you are away. This gives a rough idea of the type of shoes you need; if you are going to be doing a lot of walking or hiking then you might want to invest in a good quality pair of walking boots.
Consider carefully the type of upper body apparel you will need for your journey, including a good variety of different styles of top. Polo shirts are perfect if you’re heading to a place where the heat of the day may be much higher than you are used to, so you can stay cool and comfortable but effortlessly stylish.
As well as packing polos, you might also want to think about exploring options like tank tops. These will be perfect for protecting your skin when you are hitting the beach. Think fashion as well as function.
If you are jetting off somewhere warm then the last thing you want is to be struck down with heat stroke or sunburn. As well as packing reef safe sun cream you might want to think about taking a hat or two to take with you. A hat will not only protect you from the sun’s harmful rays but it will also act to keep you cooler in the heat.
Baseball caps are a brilliant hat to take away with you as they create some shade and cool for your head and face.
In terms of the accessories that you want to take on your trip, you should also think about the different types of travel technology that could be useful for you. For instance, you might want to think about purchasing a new camera. Make sure your chosen items suit the environment you are travelling in, with special regard to waterproofing and dustproofing.
If you do rely on your phone, you might also want to think about which phone you should take. If your phone is expensive it might be worth taking a cheaper model, but if you do take expensive gadgets then make sure you select a comprehensive insurance package for your trip.
Another key thing to pack in your suitcase is a high quality waterproof jacket. You might think that if you’re heading to a tropical destination, there’ll be no need for an option like this. Don’t be so sure! Most tropical destinations experience heavy levels of rainfall even through the summer season so it’s best to be prepared.
We recommend checking out the different options that are available online before you settle on the right choice of waterproof. Some tourist destinations have ponchos readily available in most shops, but plastic ones are not particularly environmentally friendly, so think about your jacket choices before you travel.
Last but not least, you might want to think about whether you need designer wear when you are buying clothing and accessories for your next adventure. We don’t think this is completely necessary. People often assume that designer clothing means that you get the highest level of quality but this isn’t always the case. Instead of looking at the brand, you should check the reviews of travellers who have bought it before you as this could save you a lot of time and money.
