How to Travel Safely in Dangerous Countries
13. Be Careful with Stray Animals
If you spot a cute animal on your journeys, stop the urge to pet it and take lovely selfies. Not only can animals be vicious, but they might also carry diseases, like rabies. No one wants their trip ruined because the seemingly friendly monkey bit their hand!
Take all the necessary vaccinations before starting your adventure, but also make sure to have a medical kit in your bag. And please, take double precautions if you’re traveling in a remote area where the nearest hospital is hundreds of miles away.
14. Carry Local Emergency Numbers with You
Nowadays, it’s pretty easy to get hold of emergency numbers when you’re traveling – you just need to find them on your smartphone. However, if you get robbed or the phone breaks, what are you going to do?
By having important numbers in your bag, including the travel insurance contact, you’ll know you can contact the authorities to ask for help if something serious happens.
