How to Prepare for All Conditions When Traveling

If you’re planning on traveling somewhere that has quite extreme or highly variable weather, you need to think about how you’re going to prepare for that. There’s no right or wrong way to prepare for a trip because it’s all down to you and how you want to experience it. But if you want to make sure you’re prepared for a variety of weather conditions, read on and make the most of the tips below.

Ensure Your Shoes Are Versatile

First of all, you need to think about your footwear. This is something that often gets overlooked when it comes to preparing for the elements, but it’s not the kind of thing you’ll want to forget about or leave until the last minute. The shoes you wear should be as versatile as they can be. And they should offer protection and security, without weighing you down or being too warm to wear.

Take Something Airy for Warmer Weather

Taking something airy and loose-fitting with you when you travel is usually a good idea, especially if you’re not sure what the weather is going to be like. If you know that it’s going to be warm at times, you need clothes that are going to let your skin breathe. You can then pair those items with warmer jumpers and coats at times when the weather is likely to get warmer.

Choose Thermals for Warmth and Ease of Packing

Choosing thermals for the times on your trip when you know it’s going to be cold is a good idea. They keep you warm, and unlike jumpers and other bulky winter clothing items, they don’t take up much room in your suitcase. That’s why they offer what you need both in terms of warmth and in terms of packing.

Look for Protective Brands You Can Trust

If you want to make sure you’re protected from the wet, rain and snow, you need to make sure you’re wearing clothes made by a company that you can trust. Companies like Stormline are known for offering highly protective and high quality clothing items that are suitable for a wide range of applications in extreme climates and weather scenarios. So take a look at those kinds of brands.

Have a Plan B in the Event of Cancelled Flights

Finally, you need to make sure you always have some sort of plan B in place that you can call upon if something goes wrong with your travel plans. If you’re expecting volatility in terms of the weather, you never know when flights, trains or ferries might be cancelled at the last minute. And you don’t want all of your plans to be completely derailed and thrown off course because of that.

If you make the most of these tips, you should find it’s more than possible to prepare for your trip properly and to remain prepared for whatever the weather and climate might throw at you. It’s about more than packing, so think about how your plans can be made bulletproof too.

Exploring Scotland : North Berwick 2021 VLOG

I want to explore more of Scotland, and have done now for a while.

Recently North Berwick caught my eye, and I thought lets take a drive and check out the sights. North Berwick is only about 1hr 30mins drive from Glasgow, or slightly longer if the Edinburgh route is very busy so plan ahead if you want to visit. I had a few places in mind to visit while here, but I just went with the flow and enjoyed the day.

Check out : Alandas Gelateria if you visit as you saw from the vlog it was great ice cream and also check out my blog review.

See you next time and let me know if you visit.

If you have been here, do let me know what you thought in the comments below this post.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Entry Cost : FREE

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Mu​seum is Glasgow’s most visited attraction.​ 

It has many rooms and attractions for you to see, and I highly recommend you take your time and take in all the paintings etc as the details are amazing.

While you are here why not check out the park thats right next to it, its a great big park and very relaxing and enjoyable to walk about. I have done this many times, when I used to stay in the West End and prior to that pop over and visit.

The Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel

Glasgow transport museum is a very cool place to visit, it has many items on display and even includes a street thats themed to look very old.

I also recommend you take a walk out the back, and take a visit on the Tall ship.

This does cost money to go onboard, but its worth every penny as you get to see on deck an below deck which is really interesting to see.

Glasgow Botanic Gardens

Situated in the West End, this is a lovely place to take a walk around the Botanics and go inside and see all the amazing and wonderful plants.

You will see so many new species of plants etc its a great experience and one for all the family.

Glasgow City Centre

Glasgow city centre, is loaded with businesses and many cafes, restaurants, pubs and great shops.

Take a walk along the streets, visit Buchanan Street and see all the great shops there. Take a walk to George Square and see the statues, you will never bored in Glasgow as there is so much to see and do.

Glasgow West End

Glasgow West End is a great place to visit, as you have seen from above you have the Museum, the Botanics plus many great wee cafes, restaurants and other little shops.

I loved to walk about the shops here, and also walk in Kelvingrove park….sometimes even just sitting on the grass and enjoying the day and atmosphere.

Restaurants To Visit

Since I am a Glasgow food blogger, I couldnt not mention a few good places to visit.

Again just like places to visit, there are so many amazing places to eat. Just because they are not on my list, doesnt mean they are bad, so please dont miss any out.



Glasgow, West End

Overall :

When planning your UK Staycation, either get a notepad or use a spreadsheet and sit and plan it out.

Start with your top must see places, or must eat places then followed by a “if we have time we will see or visit x” this way your enjoying your staycation and not feeling rushed to make sure you tick off everything on your list….if you don’t then just have another staycation 🙂
