Hard-Won Travel Tips
By Travel For Boomers on November 23, 2012
Leaving the house for faraway lands comes with certain risks. Here are some hard-won tips for easy, drama-free travel:
"There are pickpockets everywhere. The Eiffel Tower even has large signs warning tourists to be aware of the pickpockets – definitely a buzz kill from that awesome first experience at the Eiffel Tower. Of course, you won’t have to worry so much about having your pocket picked or your purse stolen if you’ve made copies of your identification and all your credit cards. If the originals are stolen, you’ll just need to find a computer, call up those documents you carefully scanned, and emailed them to yourself (or save them in a remote server), then print them out. This will also make it much easier to get a copy of your passport and cancel your credit cards. Take the time to do it. You’ll be so glad you did."
