Going on a backpacking trip is always exciting. But don’t forget to follow these very simple and basic tips to ensure you have a safe and smooth trip.
Make copies of the important documents and keep it at home. Make sure you leave the copies of things like your passport, credit cards and anything else important with someone you trust. If something goes wrong and these having those copies can help. Keep a copy with yourself just to be sure.
Make sure to keep in touch. These days technology helps to connect much quicker and easier. A quick message or an email about your well being will be great. When you are traveling your well-wishers tend to worry, so with a quick call or a message you can take away the worry.
Lock your bag with a combination lock when you are exploring around. This will keep your belongings safe and you don’t have to be stressed about getting robbed and you can enjoy your trip in peace.
Lock up your luggage when traveling through public transport as most of the time it would be put away in storage. Double lock it with zip ties to be on a safer side. Use lockers to store your baggage but make sure to lock them if not available.
Have a good trip!
