Tips To Stay Safe While Traveling

Keeping yourself safe while traveling is a must, and it’s important that you take care of yourself wherever you go, especially when it comes to traveling to new places that you might not have visited yet before. Here are some simple tips to stay safe while traveling.

Be Wary Of Sketchy Activities

Activities, while you travel, can be fun to do, but not every country has the same health and safety rules and regulations. Sometimes, there’s going to be places and specific activities that might be dangerous, and we can often use our own judgment about which ones these may be. They end up being dodgily operated, and if you’re not careful, you could end up having to hire a personal injury attorney. This is something you want to avoid as best as you can, so when it comes to activities that you do on your travels, make sure these are considered carefully before going through with any. You don’t really know which ones are really safe, especially when they’re something that isn’t advertised online.

Keep Your Belongings Safe At All Times

Traveling abroad means your belongings are kept on you during the entire journey that you’re there. So it’s important to keep your belongings safe by making sure they’re insured and that you’re being smart when exploring a different country. Get access to a safe where you’re staying, if possible. Keep any backpacks strapped to the front of your body instead of the back or on the side. Any valuables, make sure they’re in a locked or zipped item of clothing or bag.

Stay In Touch With Family And Friends

When it comes to your family and friends, make sure to stay in touch with them on your travels because it’s good to let them know of your itinerary, and it’s also useful for them when it comes to checking up on you so that they know where you are. It might be that you are going off-grid for a few days and you obviously don’t want anyone to worry. It’s also good for your own safety that should something happen to you, someone knows your last whereabouts or close to where you were.

Try To Avoid Posting Your Locations On Social Media

Social media has become a very popular place to post your life story up onto, and many do that on a daily basis. However, it’s a good idea to always post your location after you’ve been there and not while you’re there. That’s because you never know who might be watching or picking up on your location nearby. If you start showcasing your valuables or yourself in places that are an easy target, your valuables or your safety could become compromised. So try to avoid posting it all over for the world to see where you can.

Staying safe is essential to your wellbeing, so don’t take it for granted, particularly when you’re in a foreign country to you. Be wary of everything, and keep an eye on your things and yourself.

  • According to a study by H&R Block, 66 percent of millennials have no idea when taxes are due. (Hint: April 15!) ⠀
⠀
Preparing taxes is overwhelming, annoying, and just downright stressful, but I’ve learned some tips and tricks that help me make sure I’m not paying one cent more than necessary.⠀
⠀
I wrote, "Get Independent: Tax Filing Tips for Millennials," for @affnetwork two years ago, but it's still as relevant as ever this tax season. Read more at the #linkinbio ⠀

So...who's filed already? 🤪

  • I couldn’t come up with a concept for our engagement photos at all. Clothes, colors, location, nothing. Kyle came up with this Old Hollywood/Gatsby vision that is completely *us* and I love it. Thank you so much, Tessa for making it all come to life! ✨✨✨

  • Colombia, you are perfect.
  • 12/10 recommend renting out a house with a group of Americans, Colombians, and French people you recently met in the countryside
  • 🇨🇴 Jump in that water be free, come south of the border with me 🇨🇴
  • Climb to the top was worth it (mainly for the views and the ice cream) 🌎
  • Here’s a #TravelTuesday tip: GET ✈️ ENOUGH ✈️ SLEEP ✈️! I can sleep on planes, trains, automobiles, and have even slept through tornadoes and one Earth quake. (And through a riot in the occupied part of Israel...😬) When changing time zones, adjust as quickly as you can. A 5+ hour difference may not seem like a big deal, but it can catch up to you quickly if you’re not used to it. 😴
  • You're engaged! Congratulations! So...now what? ⠀
⠀
The first few days (or weeks) can feel totally overwhelming, but they don't have to be. I asked Kyle for his advice for folks who are newly engaged and they lined up EXACTLY with my list. (Read them all on my blog #linkinbio)
⠀
What advice would you give to newly engaged couples? ❤️💍#WeddingWednesday
  • According to a 2015 survey, only 29% of Americans have ever been abroad. 29%!!! ⠀
⠀
Europeans are lucky – most countries there are about the size of our individual states and public transportation and quick flights make weekend trips such a breeze. Although the U.S. is HUGE, there is a lot more of this world to see. ⠀

Is one of your New Year's Resolutions to get your passport?  Visit a new country? A new continent? ⠀

Take my advice: pick a location, buy the ticket, and just GO. 🌎✈️
