Holidays are much sought after since they act as a pleasant break from stressful routines, hectic schedules, busy deadlines and monotony of everyday life. The excitement of planning a holiday destination months in advance, and thereafter counting the days to explore a new country, a new terrain, new people, new cultures, new food and new scenic surroundings is incomparable. Also, the break from the usual humdrum is incentive enough to plan holidays, especially relaxing holidays to exotic destinations or even better, taking off onto a cruise around scenic locations, such as the Mediterranean region. A Mediterranean getaway conjures up images of the sun, the sand, the beaches, the scenic houses and architecture, the luxurious resorts and complete relaxation on the agenda.
Packing for a Mediterranean holiday
A holiday in Mediterranean, whether on a cruise or in a luxurious resort, needs a list of essentials to be packed. Clothes are the first thing that comes to mind while thinking of packing for the holidays. The weather, especially during the summers is balmy around the Mediterranean thus calling for weather appropriate clothing to be packed. Apart from high street brands, an Australian fashion brand that sells boutique clothing is good to go. These boutiques have fashionable and at the same time comfortable clothing line ideal for a Mediterranean, or a cruise holiday. These include stylish and chic kaftans, flowing maxis, floral printed summer dresses, pants, and blouses all of which are one-of-a-kind designer pieces that spell glamour along with comfort. And these are sure to make heads turn at the Mediterranean sojourn. Women can even consider packing tank tops which can be paired with shorts and skirts alike and be suitable for the weather. Men too can choose from solid coloured polo neck t-shirts to subtly floral printed shirts along with chinos, cotton shorts or pants and a summer jacket or a sports coat in light colours for a formal evening or for dinner.
The evenings and nights can get little crispy and cold, especially on a cruise, owing to the sea breeze and winds and thus it is wise to pack light sweaters or consider layered clothing which can be added or removed as per the weather conditions. Swimwear is a must to be packed while on a Mediterranean getaway since there are many alluring beaches or pools at resorts and hotels as well as water sports and activities, like snorkeling and scuba diving.
Other Essentials You Must Pack
Apart from clothes, there are a few other essential items that need to be packed for a mediterranean holiday. These include accessories, such as summer hats, caps and sunglasses, all of which are a must-have given the sunny weather combined with the winds. Sunscreen is equally vital on the said holiday and must be packed in proper quantities, for face, hands, arms and legs too. Other toiletries are usually provided at the hotels but if one requires specific products then those must be packed without fail. Medications if any must also be taken along. Beach appropriate footwear is a must too.
Shopping and packing for an upcoming holiday, especially if it’s the scenic Mediterranean region, is exciting. The enthusiasm can make one forget the essential and thus a list of essentials to pack on the holiday is helpful and handy too.
