Traveling to a foreign country enables you to see life from a different perspective. It enables you to explore and push yourself beyond your comfort zone. It can be hard navigating through a new country on the first day because you have people speaking a different language and a new culture awaits you. It is paramount that you take care of yourself and belongings because you never know the intentions of strangers.
This article offers amazing tips to keep you safe when traveling to a new country.
1. Walking at Night
If you are in a new country, avoid walking alone during the night. Thugs can usually tell someone who is a local and a tourist. It is becoming evident to pickpockets and thugs that you do not know your way around their country well. This puts you in the spotlight for robbery or kidnappings. If you have to walk alone at night make sure you walk behind a couple. Be aware of your surroundings; once in a while looking around to see whether someone is following you. Also, avoid dark alleys and unfamiliar streets – it is hard to ask for help during the night unlike in the day.
