With recent concerns about travel safety I thought now was a good time to share my thoughts and experience on safe travel with you.
- Obey the law.
- Follow your instincts and avoid any areas or situations that seem as though they could become dangerous.
- Stay in the well-known tourist areas of the cities you visit.
- Know and respect local laws in the country you are visiting.
- Visit only legitimate businesses and tourist areas, please avoid areas known for prostitution and drug dealing.
- Leave a copy of your itinerary with a friend or family member back home.
- Check with your mobile phone provider before departure to see if your phone is capable of roaming on GSM or 3G/4G international networks.
- Do not display expensive looking jewelry, large amounts of money, or other valuable items.
- Make every attempt to travel during daylight hours, and stick to main roads.
- Make photocopies of your travel documents, one set to leave with a friend or family member back home, and another to leave in a safe place at your hotel, like the hotel safe.
Which of these safety travel tips have you been using? Do you have any others?
As always, please feel free to share. I hope that by sharing my experiences you find strength, hope, and solutions when you make your commitment to live beyond your illness.
