The base thermals are a must-take thing when you are travelling to cold places. You might think they are thin and unnecessary, a good base layer can add as much warmth as a thick sweater. Paired with a shirt and pants, the base layer will insulate you from the cold without adding much volume to your luggage.

Carry a larger handbag or backpack to hold accessories when you take them off indoors. Make sure you carry an umbrella, regardless of the weather forecast to save money on a soggy purchase if raindrops fall. Remember, thieves do not rest in the cold so pack your valuables in RFID-safe bags.

Since the main function of water in the body is to regulate temperature, when you get extremely dehydrated, your body feels imbalanced and has a difficult time maintaining a regular temperature of 98 degrees.
