Get on track for summer travel

Summertime is travel time. Many of us spend their holiday in a foreign country, travelling in different ways or staying in one place and enjoying the beach or nature. This spring I spent the month of May far away in Bali. So I decided to stay the summer month in my own beautiful country. Because why seeking a foreign destination when there are so many undiscovered places nearby? A few weeks ago on the Top of Europe, a weekend in the lovely town of St.Gallen and this weekend we have a family hiking tripΒ planned πŸ™‚Railtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-1a Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-2a Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-2 Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-9 Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-10a Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-11 Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-12 Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-15 Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-16 Get on track for summer travelRailtrack-Summer-travel-Libertycard-16a Get on track for summer travel

With traveling good planning and organization comes hand in hand. As choosing to pack lighter and still having the necessities with you in all aspects is super important and will keep you out of trouble. When traveling with public transport it is important to have the timetable and route in your mind. Because the Swiss public transport is very reliable (at least mostly) and arriving 30 seconds to late on the rail track might trigger rescheduling your journey. Therefore I learned a few important lessons…. Here are my top 5 tips for traveling, no matter how long or far your trip is going to be.


Check the weather

Before even starting to pack or planning activities make sure that you know what might be appropriate to do at that specific time of the year. No sense to taking thick winter clothes to Italy in July or bringing your summer dress in December to Switzerland (unless you want to freeze) Β πŸ˜‰ The weather in the Alps can change within an hour. So make sure before leaving for a trip to check the forecast. Furthermore, this brings us to the next tip.

Keep it light

Not only as a fashion lover, but in general the biggest challenge is to pack light. Not bringing too much is not always easy. So try to plan your outfits roughly in advance. And make sure that you take versatile clothing with you, so you might wear the same piece in different ways.

Only the essentials

When I travel, I prefer to leave all unnecessary cards and documents from my wallet at home. Next to my legal documents like passport, ID, driving licence I might bring some small notes of cash. But as Digital NativeΒ I love to pay everything by credit card. Therefore choosing one with different additional services like insurance or 24h assistance is a wise step. I like the aspect of the new Visa LibertyCard where I am even able to collect points while traveling. And in combination with aΒ student card you can get amazingly smart deals and discounts in expensive SwitzerlandΒ πŸ™‚

Be on time

Depending where you are travelling to the public transport might be reliant or not so much. Here in Switzerland it is not only quite expensive but also precise when it comes to time. So make sure to be on time and plan accordingly. I try to improve myself and plan enough but often when I run late I just love to check the timetable or buy a ticket on the go. Therefore, the Apps of the Swiss Transport are very convenient.


In the end – if you are well prepared nothing can hold you back. So you don’t have to worry about any nitty gritty stuff and can fully enjoy. Be present and soak in every moment the fullest πŸ™‚

I wish you a wonderful summer day! And great start into the weekend. Possibly just starting your vacation or are you out forΒ a short trip?

        Definitely! πŸ™‚ I totally felt in love with holland and belgium, but I’m not sure if everyone would like it as much as I did. I just love the whole atmosphere there πŸ™‚ I have been to 14 different destinations (cities as much as a national park or kinderdijk) within 16 days, slept partly by a friend in the netherlands and in hostels, everything with the trains went well (connections are very very good! just sometimes they stop without saying it before but the distances are only between 1-3 hours so it was not such a problem), the hostels were great too and I met very nice people πŸ™‚ I didn’t spend a lot of money but it was expensive anyway^^ but definitely worth it! πŸ™‚
