Bask in Winter Sun or Hit the Slopes?

As winter approaches, the lucky traveller’s dilemma arises: bask in the warm glow of a winter sun escape or chase the thrill of a snowy ski adventure? Whichever you choose, here are some tips to ensure your winter holiday is nothing short of spectacular.

If you’re choosing the heat of the sun, you may want to think about…

Opting for a location with a reliable sunny reputation during winter. Think Bali, the Maldives, the Caribbean or a if a little closer to home, the Canary Islands. Research weather patterns to guarantee the perfect blend of warmth and sunshine.

Pack versatile outfits that transition effortlessly from beach to town, remembering a versatile, light stylish bag for your phone and essentials. Nova is perfect, especially the stone and orange colour combo, adds a zingy pop of colour to any outfit. 

What’s going on?  Check your destination for seasonal events or festivals happening at your destination.

Explore local cuisines and savour tropical flavours. Winter sun destinations often boast fresh fruits and seafood. Venture beyond the tourist hotspots to discover hidden gems serving authentic dishes.

Hydrate! Keep a water bottle handy and sip regularly. Maybe give coconut water a try or fresh juices to replenish electrolytes and stay energized throughout your sun-filled days.

And if you’re heading for the slopes..

Check your ski resort caters to your skill level and preferences. Some resorts are renowned for challenging slopes, while others are perfect for beginners or family trips.

Invest in good-quality ski gear - whether renting or buying. Comfortable boots and well-maintained skis or snowboards can make all the difference to your experience on the slopes.

Consider booking lessons. Even experienced skiers can benefit from a refresher course. Professional instructors can provide valuable tips to enhance your skills and enjoyment.

All the gear? dressing in layers is crucial for a ski holiday. Wear moisture-wicking base layers, insulating mid-layers, and a waterproof outer layer.

You can still accessorise. Being active doesn’t mean you have to stop being stylish!  Rock your look, with winter warmers, scarf, gloves, a hat.  A light stylish bag to carry your phone (think piste map and photo ops!) at all times can add the finishing touch.  Our Nova bag allows you to use your phone without having to take it out of your bag!

 Whether you're lounging on a sun-kissed beach or carving through pristine snow, embrace the season, and make the most of your winter getaway!
