BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN SWITZERLAND IN WINTER

BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN SWITZERLAND IN WINTER

Switzerland is magical especially in winter and even if you don't know how to ski like a real pro, there are many places you can visit in Switzerland.

In fact, this enchanting place in the heart of Europe offers you the right mix of sports, nature, relaxation, spa and good food!

The transportation system is really very efficient and promises you to get from one place to another quickly.

Each stop will also give you snowy dreamscapes that you will look forward to gazing out the window to enjoy incredible and jaw-dropping views.  

 We've wrapped up some of our favorite destinations in Switzerland that you simply cannot miss: 

  • Grindelwald
  • Interlaken
  • Zermatt
  • St. Moritz

 

And last but not least, the Glacier Express train!

The Jungfrau is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is famous for its peaks, plus this region is home to the highest train station in Europe.

Grindelwald is a must-see stop on your trip to Switzerland; in particular, we recommend that you do not miss the First Cliff Walk, which leads over a suspension bridge about 40 meters long and gives you a breathtaking view of the town and the peaks around you!

Interlaken is a well-known resort between two lakes, surrounded by dreamy mountain ranges. This town offers you lots of activities such as whitewater rafting, bungee jumping and paragliding but if you prefer something quieter here is what we suggest:

  • Kayak trip on Lake Brienz
  • Spa and thermal baths at the 5-star hotel Victoria Jungfrau

 

 Zermatt is located at the foot of one of the most famous peaks, the Matterhorn; a town that seems to have come out of a fairy tale and that at every hour of the day gives you emotions and... incredible shots!

 One of the most incredible experiences you can have is to sleep a night in an igloo, in particular we recommend you look at the Inglu-dorf site where you will find lots of them all over the territory.

One of the most beautiful chalets in the world according to The thelegraph, on the other hand, is Chez Vrony right in Zermatt, and very famous is its traditional restaurant with a view of the Matterhorn.

Very famous St. Moritz, known for its beauty but also for the luxury it offers.

One of the most chic hotels ever is Palazzo Badrutt, an icon of St. Moritz since 1896.

The same hotel also boasts of the most famous spa in the place, truly ideal for relaxing!

 Don't miss the Glacier Express that takes you from Zermatt to St. Moritz.

Also known as the " world's slowest express train," the Glacier Express has huge panoramic windows to let you never lose sight of the snowy fairytale landscape around you.

You will pass through The Rhine Gorge, Know as the "Grand Canyon of Switzerland," and the Oberalp Pass, and meanwhile enjoy a 5-course meal accompanied by wine or champagne if you travel in the luxurious first class.

Save and share this incredible guide to Switzerland for this coming winter escape or even use for planning in the Summer, which is equally as incredible and promises to not disappoint!

SLEEP WELL EVEN AT 35,000 FEET!

SLEEP WELL EVEN AT 35,000 FEET!

EVER ENVIOUS OF THOSE WHO SEEM TO FALL ASLEEP SO EASILY WHEN FLYING? 

During a flight, some people sleep the whole time and some people...just can't sleep a wink!


If you, too, have trouble sleeping on a long-haul trip, don't worry...follow our team's tips for sleeping and resting even at 35,000 feet!

 

A cup of tea

 

Although a glass of red wine gives an inevitable sleep, there is nothing more wrong than drinking alcohol during a plane ride.

Hydration is important for the whole body and also for sleeping well!

Prefer a relaxing hot brew!

 

Choose your Seat

When booking your seat, think of the plane as your bed and consider changing your seat to the same side on which you sleep.

Relaxing sounds

Before sleeping instead of watching a movie or listening to music, download an app that plays white noise or soothing sounds such as that of the sea or rain.

 

Turn your seat into a comfortable bed

For some people, sleeping in a place other than their own bed is really difficult!
If we then stop to think about how many people have used that seat before us and whether our airline will really have cleaned the plane before the trip...sleep turns into a nightmare!

Fortunately, today there is Safe Travels Kit, the first travel sheet set that upgrades your seat!


In fact, our airline linen set includes a universal seat cover and pillowcase made of a luxurious, innovative material that is antibacterial, hypoallergenic ultra soft AND, helps prevent the spread of bed-bugs (yes, we know completely gross- but inevitable on flights at times!

You can have a peaceful sleep without worrying about germs, bacteria, allergens (and pests) and rest as if you were in the bed of a five-star hotel Now, would you ever sleep in a hotel room without provided linens? NO!!! Somehow we do and are expected to on flights! 

And on the way back? 
Don't worry! No need to wash your sheet because our fabric is NON GERM BINDING, designed to handle multiple trips

 Now, relax, sit back, catch some zzzz's  and Safe Travels!

Long-Haul Flight: Tips and Carry-On Essentials

Long-Haul Flight: Tips and Carry-On Essentials

Every serial traveler is perfectly organized before taking a trip, but when it comes to dealing with long-haul flights, organization is even more important.

In this blog post, our team shares some tips, carry-on essentials and "must haves" for surviving long-haul travel and flying as comfortable as if you were in a 5-star hotel: 

1.) Wear your most comfortable outfit

When it comes to long-distance travel, stick to a “comfy-chic” dress code of neutral, loose-fitting layers you can move around in. Don't forget packing a sweater as cabins can get chilly!! 

A must for ladies? Your favorite scarf, a stylish accessory and extra layer for beating cabin chills.

 

2.) Use a good travel pillowcase

For long-distance travel, a pillow is always provided but, but in any " class" we can't necessarily ensure they are crisp and clean. And as we know bacteria can survive up to 180 hours on airplanes, why not bring your own!? 

Take Safetravelskit soft-touch, anti-microbial, hypoallergenic and antibacterial travel pillowcase with you.

You'll rest better, rid of that ick and safe from germs and bacteria.

That means: protect skin from unwanted allergens. Do you have sensitive skin or suffer from acne? Travel comfy and clean adding a layer of cleanliness, without the immediate rush to wash your hair upon landing! 

 3.) Pack your own headphones

For listening to music or perhaps enjoying a good movie, the headphones provided are not the best;

Thanks to those roaring engines and crying toddlers (we love babies!!) in the next row, you can't void out the noise. 

The solution is to bring your own headphones that are even more comfortable than the ones provided!

 4.) Less makeup, more moisturize

Make-up can clog pores and at 30,000, cabin air pressure makes skin dry, brittle  and dehydrated.

Apply a good moisturizer and serum before and during the flight to ensure you stay hydrated throughout the trip!

Also, don't forget an eye drop to combat dry eyes and, of course, a rich lip balm as well.

Hydrate your skin from the inside, too and remember to drink plenty of water during the flight.

Our favorite products chosen for you are:

Lip balm by @clarksbotanicals , 
with hydrating, plumping and anti-aging properties. It nourishes and protects your lips from the effects of aging. 

Jasmine oil by @clarksbotanicals:
This innovative and immuno-stimulating botanical infusion serum and oil is perfect to moisturize, nourish and revitalize skin.

Hydraboost HA Serum Pad by @m61skincare :
Serum pads with hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 & E that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 5.) Keep the blood flowing

Get up for a walk at least every couple of hours. This will increase blood flow. It is also helpful to practice some noninvasive exercises in the seat, such as shoulder movement and ankle rotation.

 6.) Try to rest and sleep

In order to sleep relaxed and peaceful, turn your seat into a place where you feel comfortable.

Even if you're not provided with a fresh soft sheet in the air, you can still make your own clean bed in the sky! 

That's why Safetravelskit has created the only seat cover that fits all types of seats and creates a barrier that lets you rest safe and clean. After all, do we sleep in a hotel without a sheet? Now you can bring your own! 

UPGRADE YOUR SEAT! 

Our universal seat cover applies quickly and adds a true layer of comfort and serenity to your seat for a peaceful and germ free flight! Don't forget to pop in earplugs and a sleeping mask and you're ready to rest as if you were in the bed of a luxury hotel.

 7.) Bring a soft bag that is not too big

On a long-haul flight, you will have to sit for a long time, and every inch is important to be comfortable.

Your personal bag to store under the seat in front of you should be small and soft so that you can keep your legs as relaxed as possible throughout the trip.

We love The Mini Weekender bag from Beis by @shaymitchell

Safe Travels,  Jet-Setters!

Marrakech Pocket Guide

Marrakech Pocket Guide
Marrakech is unique and will take your breath away. It is easily one of the most spectacular cities filled with vibrancy and an exhilaration of all senses.
Marrakech is an atmosphere, it is a state of mind, it is a play of lights and colors, it is bustle in the streets, it is the smell of argan, cous cous and mint.
In this pocket guide to Marrakech, we'll share how to explore and be delighted by all its majesty and wonder! 

Getting around Marrakech
In our opinion, the best way to get around Marrakech and outside the the city is surely by cab.
What's great about their drivers is that you can haggle prices with them and you can ask them to be your personal driver for the duration of your stay too! 

 

Where and what to eat in Marrakech
There is one thing we advise all travelers to Marrakech: If you're a "foodie", taste every dish of Moroccan cuisine! Do not be prejudiced, order every typical dish and be surprised by the spices, colors and cooking of each food.

Don't miss:
Yoyale cous cous, lemon chicken tajine with olives, and the Pastilla, a puff pastry pie with chicken, squab or squid inside and almond granules, cinnamon and sugar on the outside
Let's talk about costs: prices are always quite affordable compared to many other top destinations. For a 3 course menu, costs average  from 20 to 35 euros per person.
One of Our favorite restaurant in Marrakech is La Maison Arabe!
Where to stay in Marrakech
Here is one thing we are convinced of! You absolutely must stay in the Medina of Marrakech, inside a Riad.

Here is a list of our favorite Riads:
What to see in Marrakech and other information
Marrakech is a treasure chest of wealth, beauty, history...every corner will be a discovery, a surprise, an enchantment.
However, do not miss these places:
The souk: The typical Arab market where haggling before buying something is a must
Jeema el Fna Square: the chaotic town square where you will find Berber dancers, snake charmers and street vendors
Bahia Palace: considered a masterpiece of traditional Moroccan architecture.


Majorelle Gardens: This garden complex was designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle in 1931, during the colonial period.
The majorelle blue is very famous and even conquered Yves Saint Laurent who purchased it in 1980.
 
Have we convinced you to visit Marrakech?
Then start packing your bags and don't forget sunscreen, a hat, glasses and...Safetravelskit of course!

Our Seat covers and pillowcases are made from super soft-touch material, high-tech fabric that prevents germs from penetrating.

Our seat covers are not only perfect for planes and trains but also for cars!

Are you thinking of spending a few days in Capri? Then keep reading along our article and mark these 7 must-do things to in Capri!

 2) Morning Coffee in the Piazzetta

For a coffee in the morning or an aperitif in the evening, a stop in the Piazzetta is a must. Maybe you might even meet some VIPs!

Capri Piazzetta

 How much does a coffee in the Piazzetta cost?

Sitting at the table costs around 5 euros, while for an alcoholic drink you spend around 15 euros.

 3) Take a Drink in the sky

From Piazza Vittoria in Anacapri, take the chairlift up to the summit of Monte Solaro, once at the top calmly enjoy the view, take lots of photos and maybe stop for a drink at the "La Canzone del Cielo" bar.

Descend on foot, following the signs for the Hermitage of Cetrella: a valley with a small church that was once a hermitage retreat. 

Faraglioni Capri

 4) Enjoy the view

From the Piazzetta walk down to the Quisisana, feast your eyes on the glittering windows of the luxury boutiques and then turn the corner to find yourself immersed in the bright tranquility of Via Tragara.

Via tragara Capri

The narrow street skirts the gardens of Capri's most beautiful villas and hotels with the sea shimmering beyond the jasmine and bougainvillea. Eventually you come to a small piazzata overlooking the Faraglioni. 

5) Watch the best Sunset

Where to see the sunset in Capri? One of the best spots is undoubtedly the lighthouse at Punta Carena.

Another jaw dropping spot is at the Lighthouse in Anacapri while enjoying an aperitivo at Lido il Faro!

 6) Have a special Dinner

How better to end a perfect day in Capri than with dinner at a restaurant with a panoramic view or typical atmosphere?

If this is your first time on Capri, don't forget to try the local specialties: ravioli capresi filled with marjoram and caciotta cheese and the chocolate and almond-based cake, Caprese.

 Our favorite restaurant is  Lo Zodiaco.

A truly unmissable restaurant in Capri is "Da Paolino" for a fantastic Italian dinner in the island's most famous and glamorous lemon grove!

 7) Dancing all Night long

An evening of dancing and fun in Capri that is unforgettable?

Then you have to go to a tavern, and the most famous is "Anema e core" where live music is played and dancing and singing to the rhythm of tarantella or the great classics of Neapolitan songs.
