There are several things you need to keep in mind before you prepare yourself for some sort of traveling. However, since you cannot go anywhere without clothes, you have to focus more on the kind of clothes you are carrying. Firstly, ask the following questions to yourself and answer each one of them wisely:
Q. What is the climate of the place you are traveling to?
This is the most important question, perhaps, since you have to carry clothes depending upon the climate of the place you are visiting. It does not rain all throughout the year, anywhere and neither does it snow in summers. It is important for you to check the current weather and even the weather forecast for the days when you would be at the place you are traveling to. Your clothes should match the climate you are expecting and also on your tolerance level. Some people do not load themselves with several clothes even when they are in the snowy area. Some people feel too cold even when it rains a little. Check your tolerance level and then pack clothes, accordingly.
Q. What is the purpose of your traveling?
If you are visiting another city for an important office meeting, you will have to carry formal clothes. If you are going on a vacation, you cannot carry your formal suits. If you are attending a friend’s destination wedding, you can’t forget your tuxedos, unless it’s a theme wedding and you are expected to wear something specific. The kind of clothes you need to carry is always depending on the purpose of your visit.
Q. How many days are you going to be in another city for?
It’s not that you have to overload yourself with clothes and accessories even if you are going for a mini-vacation to a nearby location. Carry fresh clothes for each day and then one extra pair, only. Carrying too many clothes can cause luggage weight too and you might not be allowed to carry so much in the flight, if you are traveling by plane.
