In this article, you’ll learn about the different types of traveling and how to keep yourself safe while you’re on the road. You’ll also learn what to do if you’re attacked or robbed while you’re abroad.
What is the difference between a trip and a journey?
Traveling can be a really exciting experience when you travel abroad. It can also be really scary and intimidating when you don’t know how to travel safely. The difference between a trip and a journey is that a journey is short-term and can be undertaken with a single destination, while a trip is longer-term and involves multiple destinations.
How to travel safely
Travel is a lot of fun, but it’s also a great way to meet people, learn about different cultures, and experience different experiences. Unfortunately, there’s always the potential for something bad to happen on a trip. That’s why it’s important to know how to travel safely. Here are some tips:
– Don’t drink and drive. Don’t pass out and drive.
– Don’t make sudden stops. Wait until the road is clear.
– Don’t let your guard down even for an instant. Always watch out for possible threats such as stopped or improperly proceeded vehicles, pedestrians, or missing or broken traffic signals.
– Don’t accept rides from strangers.
– Don’t accept drinks from unfamiliar people.
– If you are given permission to enter a grocery store, department store, or other shopping complex, or if you go out to eat, do so in a group so that you don’t have to share a table or sit with strangers.
– Be especially careful going to or from airports or other major population centers.
– When possible, travel with other people.
– If you have to drive, don’t drive when you’re drunk or under the influence of drugs.
– When possible, wear seat belts and/or a helmet when you’re driving a car.
– When possible, use an ATM card instead of a checking or savings account when making a large purchase.
– Don’t give out your credit card number over the phone.
– Read the terms and conditions of hotels, restaurants, and other places of lodging before you book a visit.
– Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
– Don’t be afraid to say “I don’t know.”
– Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
– Don’t be afraid to share your travel story.
– Remember: Travel is a two-way street.
Travel with security
When you’re abroad, you should travel with a security team. That’s why you should always travel with friends or a group. A group of friends or colleagues can be a great way to travel safely, but if you’re traveling alone, you should consider bringing along a security team.
A good way to do that is to find a travel buddy. There are plenty of online dating services where you can meet people who are interested in traveling with you. Then, when you’re all set and ready to go, go and look for trustworthy friends to travel with you. If you’re traveling abroad, look for groups that are traveling together.
Don’t bring too much money
When you travel, it’s natural to bring money with you from home. However, money can be an excellent way to get yourself into serious trouble when you’re abroad. You can end up spending money you don’t have on taxi rides, food, transportation, and other unexpected expenses.
One way to protect yourself against these types of problems is to bring along a debit or credit card that you can easily use in case of emergency. This will allow you to cover any unexpected expenses and will help you stay out of trouble.
Don’t leave valuables
There are always going to be times when you’re abroad when you’re really too exhausted or hungry to care about anything. That’s when it’s critical to leave your valuables at home.
That includes your passport, money, electronics, and other items that could easily get lost or stolen. If you do lose something, there’s no guarantee that an airport security staff member won’t raid your bag.
Furthermore, it’s not safe to leave your bag unattended. You should either leave your bag inside a passenger cabin or hang it on a coat or backpack rack outside the airport.
Know your destination
Before you go, know your destination well so that you’ll have an idea of where you’re going and what you’ll be doing there.
For instance, if you’re going to Brazil, be sure to know exactly where Brazil is on the map so that you won’t get lost. Similarly, if you’re going to Central America, be sure to know the region well so that you won’t accidentally get involved in a conflict or political dispute.
Know your exit and stay there
Once you’ve chosen your destination and found your friends or colleagues, the next thing to do is to make plans for how to get there safely.
That means that you should know your exit strategy. Ideally, that is one that will take you as far away from your destination as possible while remaining close to the ground so that you can escape if needed.
That way, if your bag gets lost or stolen, you’ll still be able to get to your destination safely.
Don’t forget to pack
Travel gear is often heavy and bulky, but that’s not necessary when you’re on a trip abroad. You can keep your regular clothes at home and just bring your travel shoes or a travel sandal with you on the road.
In fact, you should wear your travel shoes when you’re not sure if you’ll be traveling by foot or car or on a bike. Not only will it help you stay healthy while you travel, but it will also make you feel more confident and less hesitant when you’re out in a new environment.
Don’t be afraid to ask
One of the biggest mistakes that tourists make when they travel is to be too shy to ask for help. That’s a surefire way to end up getting yourself into trouble when you’re abroad.
You should approach people when you’re ready to speak to them, regardless of whether they’re direct travelers like you or not. That’s because being too shy to talk to strangers might feel intimidating or feel like you’re being too hesitant. What you should do instead is to ask for help when you need it.
That means that you don’t need to be the friendliest person in the world to people you meet. In fact, you should be the friendliest person that you know and that you can genuinely be.
If you think that you need assistance, anyone can be a friend when you need them.
Remember: Travel is a two-way street
Travel is an experience. It’s not just about going somewhere, but about having an experience while you’re there. That’s why you should make time for yourself while you’re away and don’t be afraid to do things that you usually wouldn’t do on your own.
For instance, go out for dinner, go to the cinema, take a walk in the park, or visit a museum. Go out for dinner, but sit down in the balcony so you can look out over the city. Read a book, sit on the beach, or visit a zoo. Go out for dinner, but go to a steakhouse so you can experience a more luxurious meal.
This is your moment. Take it!
