Travel Tips From Maja Salvador

With reports from Karen Valeza

Being able to travel is one of life's greatest pleasures. The transitory exposure from buses to trains, to airplanes is something one always looks forward to. The journey is as much exciting as the destination. But of course, traveling also has its downsides, especially when it comes to packing. Style Factor catches up with actress Maja Salvador to get some travel tips.

When it comes to hand-carry bags, one must always be meticulous enough to itemize and separate things in pouches or pieces of zip lock. On liquids, they should be less than 100 ml each. The trick is to plan ahead and make a list of the items you really need. Filtering what to bring and what to leave behind is important. For Maja, she keeps it light and simple, only putting essentials inside her hand-carry. "I usually bring my camera, toiletries, and extra damit sa hand-carry bag. Kase para kapag mahaba yung flight, may time ka mag change, " she says.

When it comes to traveling in style, comfort is key. Layering is also essential for changes in temperature on and off the bus, train or plane. Scarves and jackets help. Also, keep your feet happy by wearing flats or wedges—these two are Maja's footwear of choice. "Pag nagta-travel ako, I usually wear jeans, but more on parang jeggings or leggings. I also bring a jacket or shawl. Naka-wedge rin ako minsan. Pero kapag mahabang lakaran na, I change to flats," she adds.

The art of paring down items is really important especially when you're living out of a suitcase. Just always remember that the lighter you pack, the easier it is to be in transit for long hours.
