Travel Tip of the Month

How many times have you gone on a trip where you'd be experiencing the chills of colder weather as well as heat? At Changes in Latitude we're all about layers. By layering up as you reach the cooler legs of your trip, you can avoid bringing along some of those heavier coats, saving valuable luggage space. Of course, if you can't bear to leave that warm down jacket behind, we always have compression bags!
