Traveling in winter has its own challenges: heavy, bulky clothes; space for extra gear, like umbrellas, gloves and scarves; and, of course, weather delays. Here are my travel packing tips to help you avoid being weighed down by the weather.

Pick up a space-maximizing carry-on so you won’t have to check a bag in case your flight is delayed. If you are stuck in the airport for several hours, you may want access to your personal items.
If you’re going to do a lot of outdoor walking and you don’t plan on staying in one place, bring plastic bags to store wet items during travel. And you’ll still need sun protection, even during winter! Don’t forget to put sunscreen and moisturizer on your travel packing list.
