Adventure holidays are fun but for girls, they pose a little more of a challenge. For those “girly girls” out there who can’t leave home without a hint of makeup, who wear high heels daily and who can’t seem to imagine themselves somewhere remote without they ‘lady’ essentials, here are some tips that will be very useful on your next adventure with the guys.
Footwear is one of the most important things to consider when going on a cool escapade. Boots are a must have for almost any outdoor activity and the great thing about this is that you can still look fashionable in them. So, instead of packing too many pairs of shoes simply find a pair of nice boots that can go heavy duty but still can be worn in the city.
If you are not going on extremely adventurous hikes, then a simple pair of running shoes will do. Remember to get one that has a lot of traction or you’ll make a fool out of yourself holding on to everyone’s shoulder for support. For warmer areas, add a pair of flip-flops and sandals that can be worn on night outs.
To make sure you have enough room, put on the heaviest pair of footwear when on travel and pack the smaller, less bulky ones in your bag.
Done with the shoes, now let’s go along with the clothing that you should expect to become nasty after your adventure. Instead of bringing your fancy t-shirts, find the oldest shirts that are nearing the end of their lifespan and take these along instead. This way, you can just throw them away and skip doing laundry.
Another critical part of your adventure gear is a pair of pants. If you don’t already have a one, buy yourself at least one pair of ‘performance’ pants. These are lightweight, water-resistant, quick drying pants that are synthetic and will save your legs from bugs, scathes and whatever the wilderness has to offer.
Lastly, remember to take along a couple of plastic bags to put all your filthy clothing when you’re done. Or else, you’ll have those favorite items soiled and end up having nothing decent to wear when you want to look your best.
Who says girly girls can’t go on adventures? Off course you can! It only takes a nice long ‘to-bring’ list, a little bit of shopping and you’ll be ready to have the time of your life.
