Travel Tips for Dangerous Places

Different factors influence our view of the factors that would render a place dangerous. Media reports founded largely on the desire to get a selling story, government institutions keen on propagating their political and economic agenda, and unverifiable stories doing rounds form some of the sources of information for travellers keen on visiting perceived dangerous sites.

While the use of common sense is paramount for any traveller visiting perceived risky sites, several guidelines that can help while planning for the visit are:

Before your trip:

  1. Check your facts…and your fears

Ask yourself some fundamental questions about the country you are to visit. These will be centred on the information you know about the country, the source of this information, the reliability of the source thus the authenticity of this information  and the definition of danger and how it is calculated in this context.

A case is Puerto Rico which is not deemed a dangerous tourist destination yet it’s the fifth most violent country in the world because of high rate of gun violence.

  1. Read advisories and travel warnings and put them into perspective

Do not miss to go to State Department’s website and read the travel advisories. Additionally, learn more about the country’s history and present besides what’s there in the news or advisories.

Explore local publications such as magazines, newspapers and blogs particularly because locals present a more authentic and real perspectives of who they are than non-locals.

During your trip:

  1. Look at the locals

Observe the different aspects of the local people such as mode of dressing, religious practices and food habits. It is important to desist from doing anything the locals do not do.

  1. Let people know your plans

It is important to share your day to day plans with people you trust. This will make it easy to trace you in case of any danger. This can be a text message or an email message summarising the plans for your day.

  1. Keep an emergency contact card in your pocket, wallet, or bag

Your passport or driving license may not provide much helpful information in case of an emergency. Have a card written in English and the local language outlining your name, medical information such as blood type and allergies and emergency contact information. The information in the card should be updated as may be necessary.

  1. Use authorized taxi services 

This would require you to contact a taxi service in advance. Therefore in the case of travelling to a foreign land for long, it is important to have contacts of transportation companies and utilise the authorised transport services instead of utilising just any other taxi. This however applies even within the USA in places such as New York.

  1. Drink in moderation

World over, criminals are known to take advantage of the vulnerability of people intoxicated with alcohol. They see them as easy targets because excessive drinking impairs judgement and highly reduces decision making.

Conclusion

Therefore, if you are planning to travel to a destination which is declared dangerous or where you have never been, these are some of the top tips for you to go by and apply according to the location where you are.

On a Personal Note…

Thought I’d share a story on the blog as well as Facebook. Our nephew decided to come visit the Nashville Tennessee area about the same time as we were ready for a vacation out west. It so happens he lives in the beautiful Phoenix Arizona area. We did the logical thing and did a house swap for a week, as we live in Franklin Tennessee, 20 minutes from Nashville and Phoenix is great for golfing, beautiful scenery and more. So much money and time saved!

So all goes well on our vacation; Phoenix was amazing! Our nephew, however, apparently thought it prudent to mimic some of the bachelor party movies, being a single young adult. He took several of his friends on the trip and apparently they had a pretty good nightlife during their trip. So much so that they invited a bunch of strangers to our house for a big blowout.  So one guest had a wreck and thankfully only broke his leg, and somehow got away without a DUI arrest. Another guest drank so much she vomited all over the master bathroom (what she was doing in our master suite, I don’t even want to know). A third guest thought it prudent to go through our office and play with my brand new fountain pen and spilled ink all over the rug.  I’m seriously surprised there wasn’t a tiger lurking around when we got home.

The nephew got everything cleaned up except the rug stain.  (Shout out to Franklin Carpet Cleaning for getting all the ink out and making it look like nothing ever happened. In fact, the shampooed the whole thing and it looks brand new!)

Moral of the story: don’t let family ‘borrow’ your place without you being there. Ever.

Why It’s Great to Travel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Travelling is something that everyone does at least once in their lives. Whether it’s crossing an ocean to visit your great aunt, or moving to a new city, whether you are a seasoned wanderer your or it’s your first time out, discover reasons why you should plan your next trip.

1. You’ll perceive the World with New Eyes

Whenever you’re on the road to uncharted destinations, enjoy the little pleasures in life like a child. If you see something you like, stop and take a selfie.

2. Lifelong Friendships Can Be Forged

The best friends we make are the ones we least expected. Something as simple as talking to the vendors or the passenger seated next to you on the train can be the first step to lasting friendships.

3. Unplug From Your Screen-Centered Life

Screens have taken over modern civilizations. We have become so attached to our screens that we carry them around only to fish them out during awkward situations. Luckily, traveling can fix this; it allows for interaction with new faces and breaks the monotony of routine. Put down your phone, unless you are taking a picture.

4. Give Your Children an Appetite for Exploration

Well-travelled adults took their first journey steps as children. Their parents planted the seed of exploration and with time traveling became a part of their personality and character. Not only does traveling nurture curiosity in children, it also makes them active.

5. Immerse Yourself in a New Language

How many languages do you know? They can’t be very many if you don’t get out and meet new people. And no, that required French class in high-school doesn’t count. The thing is- you do not have to know whole languages, for instance just knowing a few phrases in Chinese can make a world of difference when you visit China. Native residents really appreciate and respect the effort that foreigners take to speak their language fluently.

6. Take Advantage of Time Off

Are you retired? Are you fresh out of campus? Take the newly found time to plan a vacation. Instead of moping around your bedroom, visit that place you have always dreamed of. This impromptu excursion will be sure to lift your moods and open new windows of opportunities you never saw coming.

7. Enjoy New Cuisines

Trying new foods and drinks is always a fun activity for most people. The art of tasting new foods expands your knowledge of recipes which you can share with loved ones back home. Ditch the familiar restaurant and try out the local favorite dish.

8. Accumulate Cocktail Banter

Tales of your most recent trip to the Bahamas is sure to be a spicy topic for your next cocktail party. Small talk doesn’t have to be boring. You might even encourage someone to travel with you.

9. Challenge Your Limitations

Bungee Jumping, Zip lining, Skydiving getting on a hot air balloon can seem like the stuff of movies. Don’t ever let your fears discourage you from trying something fun. Travelling offers a great way to test your limits and breakthrough mental boundaries we may have set for ourselves.

10. You Only Live Once

There’s no room for regret when you travel only learning curves. The experiences you gather on the way will make your life meaningful. You only have one life to live. Live it to the fullest.

Happy travels. 🙂
