Whether you’re traveling internationally or taking a domestic trip, it’s importance to always practice safe…sightseeing 🙂 Despite what the news tells us, we’ve learned that most countries are generally safe and welcoming to foreigners. Unfortunately, bad things happen everywhere. They happen in big cities and they happen in small towns. Disaster does not discriminate. But if you take precautions, are open minded, and have an understanding of statistics, you’ll know that places and the people in them are much more welcoming and much kinder than the news tells us (and the chances of something happening are very slim). However, we don’t want to downplay the importance of safety while traveling. Before traveling, take these steps to ensure your travel safety and please don’t let the news stop you from visiting destinations!
