Traveling should be fun. Staying safe takes little effort – so follow these 16 tips:
1. Travel with a friend or group. The saying, "there is safety in numbers," is certainly true.

It is nice to escape cold winter season by having a long vacation in a tropical country. But before that, you should know what to bring with you when you are travelling.

You would want to bring the following things as well:
1. Light clothes
The temperature in these countries is usually high all year long, with the exception of rainy seasons. Buy clothes with fresh fabrics … Continue Reading

This is what I consider to be essential items for any traveler / backpacker. These are items which I have used in my past travels, and have served me well.
The first most obvious thing for any traveler to decide on is whether to use a backpack or a suitcase. During my first solo travel experience to Southeast Asia, Korea and Japan, I travelled with a backpack. For under 50 I bought a Eurohike 55 litre backpack with a rain cover, which came in handy during the monsoon season! The pack was top-opening, and did not really offer much by way of security. I therefore bought a special backpack transit case which I put my backpack into and made it secure from theft, but also made it secure from airport conveyor belts. I had heard that the conveyors in airports sometimes broke clips from backpacks if they were … Continue Reading
