P IS FOR PREPARE! THE A- Z CHALLENGE!

P IS FOR PREPARE! 
THE A - Z CHALLENGE.

PREPARE!


When travelling, do your preparation with a few simple security tips.

1. Copy important documents and email them to yourself. - flight tickets, passport, visas, travel insurance, driver's licence, itinerary, local contact details for your country's consulate or embassy, credit card helpline number, etc.

2. Leave a copy of itinerary and accommodation contact details with friends, or next of kin.

3. Let your bank and credit card company know when and where you are going.

 
4.Get your Will up to date, and appoint a Power of Attorney

Gee sounds like you are not coming home hey?
Well sadly, some people don't.

Preparing for travel in southern Africa.

For my next trip to Namibia and Botswana, I'm going well prepared. Being a canny shoemaker, I have made my own items to keep my valuables safe. A little preparation and my money, credit cards and passport will be as secure as they could ever be.

I'd like to illustrate here what I have done, but hey, this is a well read site! Readership is massive these days, and my map demographics show a lot of readers based in countries I'm going to.

So I can't tell you now what I have done 'cause wouldn't be secret security stuff then, would it?


Best I keep my secrets until I get back...
