Spring Forward!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a fabulous day so far! I know Spring is meant to be on its way but this was definitely not the case for Zurich. I was in Switzerland for a few days over the weekend and the weather was COLD.....brrrrr. Luckily, I had great company and there were also moments of sunshine that really made my day. Zurich is such a clean city, everything runs with great precision and efficiency. While over there, I did notice how dark most people dressed. So, I decided instead to put on a bright spring outfit from my suitcase. After all, we must look forward to the new season! :)

Travelling is one of my biggest passions in life, so much so that even flying close to 20 hours to get to my destination does not really bother me that much. The excitement and anticipation of going somewhere new, exploring and experiencing different cultures always manage to overcome the long and arduous flight time. Growing up in Australia, flying to most countries took a long time, so I have been well trained over the years.

When it comes to travelling, comfort is my number one priority. You really don't want to let your clothing or shoes be a hindrance and prevent you from your exploration. Of course, aside from comfort, it'd be great if we could also look nice and travel in style. I always choose my travelling shoes carefully. Usually my most worn in pair of shoes, flats or sneakers. The boots I have on are the perfect heel height. They have also been worn down this winter, and are now in prime condition for hours of walking.

I also recommend travelling light and carrying less. So, a small bag containing just the essentials is perfect for a day out and about. I normally prefer a small cross body bag that comes zipped for extra security, which also leaves my hands free to take pictures or navigate maps.
Once you are comfortable and protected from the elements, you will be able to enjoy the great outdoors, exploring, wandering and maybe even trying to get lost on purpose (safely of course!). I did that a few times and managed to mingle with the locals and discovered some real gems of the city! If you are going some where soon, I wish you happy and safe exploration!!
