Traveler Safety Tip
« on: September 01, 2013, 11:13:24 AM »
It is always smart to get the lay of the land upon arrival.
Once you set out, be fairly sure of your destination and have a clear idea of how to get there before departing

That's a good tip. Also be sure you have made copies of your p*port and have the copies put somewhere where you can get to them if you should loose yours or they get stolen. Makes it easier to get new ones.

This suggestion is really common sense, however I will submit it as an reminder anyway. It's best never to wear costly jewelry when you are traveling. And, don't hold considerable amounts of cash, your p*port, or your tickets if not crucial. In case you must carry these items, put on a moneybelt beneath your clothing. Most hotels have safety deposit boxes.

When booking cheap lodging make sure it's not cheap because it's in a very bad neighborhood, gunshots and sirens make for a very bad lullaby trust me and that's in the best case scenario.

Always, always be aware of your surroundings and don't back yourself into a corner-anywhere. I've been in places that I've come upon dead ends and I get out as soon as possible.

Never wear expensive clothing either. It's a red flag to some that are looking for targets. Also, don't act like a target. Walk confidently and take EBrehilda's advice to be aware of your surroundings. Another thing, be aware of WHO is around you too.

Knowing where you are going and what to expect is part of the planning ahead process that most agents will tell you when booking with them. At least in my day it was.

Also, if you are a woman traveling solo never confess to  strangers that you are alone. Of course,  never tell them where you are staying or your room number.

This is part of the reason I am flying out earlier than the others in my company. I am horrible with directions and it is not that I can't read a map or GPS its just my entire sense of travel is backwards. I blame it on being a breech baby when I was born, almost always I can head directly in the wrong direction.
