I travels all the times in the World. Its a amazing to do. I keeps copy of my passport and other paper to friends and my email. Health insuracne also good. No sexy clothers on street. My photograph equipments I lock good and hire guide with group. Not alone. Dangerous.

hello suzie. my ex-girlfriend is a backpacker and she always told me the things that kept her safe:

  • Always tell someone back home your itinerary
  • Keep valuables with you
  • Don't call attention to yourself by carrying a big purse
  • Drive only during the daytime
  • Stay in touristy places. The crowd will keep you safe.

Good luck!

Thank you! After living in Brazil for six years I have ready to see more of the world! I should also visit other places. Growing up in Texas, things were different. I didn't even get to see most of the US.

My sister lives in Singapore and travels around SE Asia a lot on her own . It is a safe region to travel and many speak English. Safety is sometimes just common sesne. Good luck and safe travels.
