Here’s something you needed to know but never asked for. So, without further adieu, here are some professional packing tips with your Ruigor Executive Duffel luxury travel bag brought to you by a not-so-professional person.

RUIGOR EXECUTIVE 10 Luxury Travel BlackPack light

This part is very crucial and obvious; you do want to pack light, whether it’s a weekend trip, a month-long vacation, or something like that. Because let us ask you, would you like to sweat while carrying a heavy backpack (probably suffer from back pain), or pack light and enjoy a lot? It’s indeed the latter.

Another essential thing is to pack in advance to know what to take and leave at home. Avoid, at the nick of time, packing as much as you can.

Pack trendy

Of course, you are heading out, so you also need to appear like you are on vacation. After all, chances like these to dress luxurious don’t come often.

A multiport charger is enough

Connecting to the first tip (pack light), if you carry all the chargers that go with your electronics, it’s going to spoil the mood. If you have many electronics, you will have difficulty finding the correct charger. Even if not, pack lighter with a multiport charger that saves a lot of space and time.

We recommend sunglasses

There’s no question about the weather these days. It can get sunny all of a sudden, especially on the beach. In that case, a pair of sunglasses will come in handy, protecting you from sunburns and, at the same time, making you look fabulous.

Weekend Getaway Ideas

Now that you have packed all the essentials, the question is where to go and what to do there. Well, the good thing is you will never run out of weekend getaway ideas in the playground of Europe. But sadly, you only have three days, and you need to sort your options, so here are the best five things to do in the country.

Get your hands on Swiss chocolate

Who doesn’t love chocolate? And when you are in Switzerland, it will be a mistake not to try their chocolate. The Swiss have been mastering the art of chocolate making for years. So now they have the best chocolates in the world, bon apatite.

See or hike the Swiss alpines

Switzerland is a mountainous country. Seeing its alpines is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. An even better option is to hike up or ski down the Alps. We guarantee that it’s an experience you will never forget.

Mouthwatering cheese fondue is a must-have

Cheese lovers rejoice as we talk about a signature Swiss delicacy. The melted cheese is a National dish. You must try your hands on. Oh, a tip, it tastes even better with meat, bread or potatoes.

Kayaking (for the thrill & fun)

Switzerland offers some of the most extreme winter and summer sports and activities, including skiing, hiking, sledding, and more. Well, kayaking is one of those best weekend getaway activities on the river. It’s indeed thrilling and fun as you row the kayak (a longboat resembling a banana in one of Swiss’s most famous towns, Interlaken.

A relaxing gondola ride

What comes next after thrill and fun is a much-needed relaxation, and what can be a better option than to go down a Gondola while seeing natural beauty. We recommend the Mt. Pilatus Gondola, Lucerne.
