Different Holidays | Snow vs. Sun Packing Tips

Where do you prefer to go during this cold winter season: the snow in the mountains or the sun in a distant destination? While some choose to spend the whole day on the ski slopes, others prefer to escape to a warm country. In other words, packing your suitcase is like night and day. In this blog, we'll give you a few packing tips for your upcoming getaway. 


Pack your bags and get ready for an adventure. Whether you're heading into the Austrian mountains to hit the slopes or deciding to chase the Northern Lights in Scandinavia, warm outfits and quality hiking boots remain essential for such a trip. To keep you warm and comfortable, here are a few tips: 


It's obviously important to pack thermal clothing. For convenience, always pack more than one set. The same goes for gloves. Packing at least two pairs of gloves can be helpful, allowing you to easily switch if one pair accidentally gets wet. Nothing is more unpleasant than having to go through the day with ice-cold wet clothes. 

The right bag 

When you're heading out in your car for your next winter vacation, the Fab Seventies 55cm carry-on suitcase is the perfect size to fit in your boot. If you prefer a bag instead of a suitcase, then the Fab Seventies Weekender is the perfect option. This suitcase leaves room for other useful items, such as a sled or your own skis with matching ski boots. 

Board games for the evening 

In the evenings, it's nice to come together and share experiences. Bring along a fun board game so you can truly make time for each other. Grab a hot tea and your favourite snacks, and the evening will fly by before you know it. 


If you're looking to get away during the winter months, it doesn't necessarily have to be to the snowy mountains. How wonderful is it to escape the winter blues and seek out the sun? 


The great thing about a trip to a sunny country is that your luggage suddenly becomes a lot lighter. You'll need to dig deep into your closet to retrieve your shorts and summer dresses. Just don't forget to pack your sunglasses and sunscreen too. If you're looking for a good sunscreen, try to buy one without microplastics, as they are harmful to the environment and your health. 

Comfortable travel 

When you're heading to a distant and sunny destination, you usually stay there for a longer period of time. Our Fab Seventies Duo Set provides enough space, so you don't have to worry about missing anything during your trip. You won't have to choose between those two cute dresses anymore or what shoes to leave behind at home. This way, you can also take some beautiful tangible memories home with you with the extra space you have in your suitcase! 

A good book 

In order to fully relax, it's always a great idea to read a good book. One that completely captivates you; without noticing, suddenly it'll be two hours later. How nice is it to soak up some vitamin D on your beach towel while the world around you momentarily disappears? You’ll fly back home feeling relaxed and recharged.
