Just about this time of year is when we start to get the itch to travel. We’ve already navigated the holiday gatherings; the body is crying out for a little Vitamin D and the whole new year seems like it’s unfolding beautifully right before our eyes. We highly recommend listening to that inner voice and finding a way to switch up your normal routines and explore the world around you. We’ve got the perfect ideas to make your travel smooth and easy, no matter whether you choose the beach, the mountains, the urban lifestyle or anything in between.
When flying the friendly skies, pack wisely. Try to use carry-on luggage wherever you can because recent airport staffing shortages usually means more delays at the baggage claim. As for what you put in that suitcase, we suggest investing in a set of packing cubes – they help you stay organized compress all your goodies so you can bring everything you need.
Buy travel insurance. Between unexpected weather issues, COVID-19 surprises and… well, life happening, you can never predict what’s going to come your way. A little bit of peace of mind goes a long way on your winter vacay. Make sure you read the fine print, so you don’t get stuck with unexpected bills when the unexpected happens.
If you’re going on a road trip, take a few safety measures before you leave. Have the car looked over, especially the tires, to make sure it’s ready for the road conditions you may face. Pack some extra layers, food and water in case a storm or accident causes you to be delayed. And bring great music or podcasts to keep you entertained. Make sure to bring a charging cord!
If you’ll be enjoying the sunshine in your new locale, don’t forget that it may have been a while since your skin has seen the light of day. Don’t overdo it! As any Miamian can tell you, we can spot a tourist a mile away by the lobster-like shade of the backs of their legs. Remember sunscreen, a funky hat and avoid sunbathing between 10 am and 3 pm.
You didn’t think we’d forget to tell you how amazing your A’nue Miami favorites are for travel, did you? As you probably already know, they wash and wear easily, take up hardly any space in your luggage and are the perfect layering option. They add a pop of color to your outfit and take you from the casual daytime date to the exotic evening outing in the blink of an eye.
We are wishing you safe travels and the opportunity to make lifelong memories with your winter adventure. Whoever you are with and wherever you go, we hope you can take some time to relax and recover so that you can face the new year with a positive outlook. Enjoy!
