The Luggage for Fall Travels

Labor Day is fast approaching and it heralds the end of summer. Leaves will start to turn red and golden brown and temperatures will drop. At Prima's headquarters in Los Angeles, we're anticipating the turning of the season. It's been getting hot with days consistently hitting the 90s, so a respite from all this heat is most welcomed.

However, the end of summer also means the end of summer travels. Soon, the travel buzz will quiet down for just a while before picking up again starting in November. But seeing fewer travelers doesn't mean fall travels are less attractive. On the contrary, some people have been looking forward to traveling in the fall because of these reasons:

Fewer Crowds, Fewer Children

Many summer travelers are families whose children are on their summer break. They decide to go on trips as a unit. And at times, they can be quite a handful. Traveling during the fall when the children are back in school means not having to deal with screaming toddlers and unruly teenagers.

A Cooler Weather

Thanks to the climate crisis, heat waves are becoming more and more frequent. The perpetually gray and cloudy London was hit with three heatwaves this year. The last one produced torrential rains and thunderstorms that caused mass floods. Fall weather is generally cooler, although some parts of the US still hit the high 80s in September.

Foods and Festivals

From the famous Albuquerque International Air Balloon Festival to the seemingly never-ending Oktoberfest in Munich, fall hosts a myriad of festivals. And the food? Well, fall is the best season for apples, cranberries, figs, and of course: pumpkins.

A Beautiful Scenery

We're not saying you can't see pretty things during summer, but if you're into nature, fall brings picturesque colors and sceneries that are just gorgeous. And some people find the sound of autumn leaves crunching and crackling under footsteps to be soothing.

And with all the changes in colors, we'd also like to highlight a few of our autumn-appropriate items.

For fall, deep and muted colors reign as we transition from the bright and poppy colors of spring and summer, and burgundy is no exception. This deep shade of red evokes a feeling of richness and luxury.

The earthiest of all shades of green, olive evokes the feeling of being out in the open space and nature and is traditionally regarded as the color of peace.

Think of charcoal as the bridge between summer white and winter black. The neutralness of charcoal means you can accessorize it with any color. Case in point: the Andante in charcoal from American Green Travel that's paired with orange accents on the zipper, brand badge, and wheels.

And speaking of...

One bright color that actually fits in the fall is orange. Anything that falls near this palette, from the dusty-orangey terracotta to almost-mauve burnt sienna is the pop color of the season. It's the color of pumpkins (and your pumpkin latte and pumpkin cupcakes) and the color of autumn leaves.
