Going on a Summer getaway? Our friends at Red Savannah share their travel tips to help you make the most of your holiday.
The holiday season is just around the corner and, to help you make the most of your Summer getaway, the luxury-travel experts at Red Savannah have shared some of their travel-better secrets.
1. Go neutral
Mix and match a wardrobe of neutrals with one or two complementary colours so that everything goes with everything. This way, you’ll ensure the maximum possible outfit choices with minimum packing. Take hard-working accessories, such as a statement necklace, multi-tasking bag or printed scarf, so you can transform your outfits from day to night with ease. A lightweight suitcase will come in handy, as not only will it allow you to pack more but it also withstands high humidity.
2. Rise early
Make the most of your holiday by getting up early at least a few times during your getaway. No time of day is more evocative than the early morning and some of the best memories are created before breakfast: walking through the Rialto Market in Venice, for example, or witnessing alms-giving ceremonies in Southeast Asia. The low angle of the sun at this time of day also creates some of the best conditions to capture some beautiful photos.
3. Write it down
Keep a journal and note the little things, as well as the large details. Encourage your little ones to do the same. Jot down the restaurants you visited, the delicious food you ate and the people you met. Note the smell of the street food, the sound of the waves on the beach. It will help you relive your get-away time-and-time again.
4. Try something new
Do something outside of your comfort zone – try white-water rafting, or bear spotting, sleep under the stars in a ‘star bed’ on an African safari and enjoy the sounds of wildlife as you drift off. We often regret the things we don’t do more than the things we do, step outside your comfort zone and experience something new.
5. Eat local
Always try a local restaurant serving regional food popular with locals at least once – and order the most unusual item on the menu. Chances are, you’ll have a good story to tell about it! After all, an enjoyable holiday is about creating long-lasting memories.
