The amazing @vagabond.jazz sharing some super helpful tips for fellow nomads, 👍❤
"Ok let's get real, real quick.
Travel #bloggers & nomadic story tellers do a beautiful job of sharing their journey highlights.
-But how often do we take the responsibility of being real about the hard topics like:
Travel Safety, Accident Insurance, Mental Health or what to do when sh*t hits the fan?
So I'll be the "Mom" for the next couple of post & keep in 300 w/ you all 🤷🏽♀️.
First let's talk about
#TRAVEL SAFETY 🌍⚠️
Whether you’re a solo female traveler or on a group excursion, here are a few things to keep in mind on the road.
1. Always know where your countries consulate is in case political, or personal problems arise & you need answers quickly.
2. Never carry your passport to night clubs or places you could possibly be pick pocketed or have hazy nights. It's literally your ticket out the country, your ID & a item you should keep in a safe.
3. If possible LEAVE YOUR PHONE AT HOME! Everyone will be taking pictures, thanks to airdrop you can share them easily. The last thing you want is your phone to get lost, wet or broken while you're swimming in the ocean.
4. When driving motorcycles use headphones in one ear for directions. Keep your hands free so you can focus on the road & listen for directions.
(I almost got my phone stolen while trying to navigate on a bike)
5. Get to know your neighbors, accommodation staff, number to the local police station & even some safe words in the local tongue: "help" "excuse me" "emergency" or "stop"
-people will start to subconsciously look out for you!
I don't say this to scare anyone, but to make us more aware & empowered while we venture.
Trust your intuition. Speak up when you see something's fishy & help out your fellow nomad who you might see in distress.
