Safety When Traveling

Safety When Traveling

Whenever you are traveling to a place that you have never been before, particularly where a vacation or relocation is involved, you should always make sure that safety is your top priority. Every year, we see reports of people who are reported missing while on vacation. Most recently, there was a report of a woman who went missing while on a cruise ship!
For instance, if you are traveling by car and you are by yourself, make sure that you pack everything that you need prior to departing your home, and make sure that whatever you have packed in your vehicle is mostly out of sight and in a place where you will not fiddle with it later. For example, when I was moving my stuff back home to New York from college in North Carolina, most of the items fit in the trunk of my car. However, there were some items that I had to put in the main body of my vehicle. So, what did I do? I covered these items with an old bed sheet so that they were not visible to anyone outside of my car.
Too often, we see or hear of people who stop at rest stops along the highway or gas stations, and then they suddenly realize that they want to dig through all of the items that they have packed in their vehicle in order to get whatever it is that they were searching for. In the meantime, unknown to them, someone is watching everything that they are doing. Then, as soon as the person leaves their car to go inside and use the bathroom or get food, they come back out to realize that their car has been broken into, vandalized or worse- stolen! If you do find that you need to retrieve something from the items that you have already packed, make sure that you do it after you have come out of the rest stop. In doing this, you can then retrieve your item and then leave the area immediately versus giving someone else the opportunity to see just how much stuff you packed in your vehicle.
When traveling, you should always travel with an emergency kit of some sort. If you are traveling by car, your emergency kit should be a tub that you keep in the trunk area of your car that contains items such as a spare tire (not necessarily housed in the tub), a car jack/car kit, flashlight with batteries, cell phone charger, blanket, first aid kit, paper map, flares, jumper cable as well as whatever else you might want to personalize your kit with. If you are traveling with someone else or by plane, etc. then your emergency kit should consist of items that are small enough to fit within your purse or bag. Items could include such things as: any medications that you may be taking, a small first aid kit, cell phone charger, a hard copy of emergency phone numbers and some loose cash to use in case of an emergency such as to call a cab, make a phone call or purchase food.
