Safety Tips (While Travelling)
Don't be a target. Thief and robbers target those that don't below, such like the traveller or tourist. They know their is money and expensive equipment on such people.
Know your route, read your map and make notes, ask for directions at he hotel and not on the road. Put your camera away while walking on the street. Keep your belonging hidden and our of sight from prying eyes.
Trust your instinct and use common sense. If something or someone feels wrong then leave where you are and get to a safe place. Be aware of what and who is around you at all times.
Stash The Money:
Don't keep your money and passports just in an open pocket. Keep it extra safe; in a hidden kidney (or fanny pack) bag or behind a zip. Make it hard for someone to just walk past you and pick-pocket you.
Even if you safely in your hotel room, don't just blindly open the door when the doorbell is rung. When leaving your hotel room make sure all your belongings are secured behind a lock and key, or push button safe. Make sure the door is shut safely behind you.
Same to if you hiring a car. Make sure the doors are locked after exciting it. Turn back and test the door to ensure its locked. Before getting out or in your car look and see if anyone is lingering around. Wait till you feel safe before doing anything.
