Travelling abroad is always a new and exciting adventure. There are lots of things to learn in a foreign country. However, we can find some problems that make our journey not as good as we could hope. Not only the rush, the baggage, the tickets, the airport, but also another climate, language, culture, customs make this new adventure, in some occasions, a bit stressful. Furthermore, this situation becomes even worse if we are travelling abroad for the first time. Therefore, in order to help people to overcome these inevitable difficulties we are going to offer you some very important pieces of advice. You should carry the minimum number of valuables, and plan places to conceal them. First of all, your passport, cash and credit cards are most secure when locked in somewhere safe. If you have to carry them on your person, you may wish to put them in various places rather than all in one wallet or pouch. In addition, you must avoid handbags, and outside pockets that are easy targets for thieves. For example, pockets and a sturdy shoulder bag with the strap across your chest are somewhat safer. In conclusion, if you have to carry valuables you should do it in a pouch or money belt worn under your clothing. If you will be travelling abroad for an extended period, you should consider consulting your doctor. It is particularly important if you have an existing medical condition or are visiting a tropical area where the conditions exist for the spread of infectious diseases. These tropical countries such as the African ones or those who have vast extensions of jungle or forest are to bring about these diseases or poisonous animals. In second place, if you take medication on a regular basis you should ask your doctor to prescribe an amount adequate for your visit and bring it with you. It is possible that in the country you are visiting the medicines you need are not available.
