7. Safety is of utmost importance
Arrange your travel insurance beforehand. Being insured is as important as anything else that wise traveling involves. Your trip can be disrupted or delayed and there is not much you can do to change this. Life is full of unexpected events. Next, you never know what kind of medical assistance you might need in a faraway country. Unfortunately, even the most attentive and careful people experience loss and theft. Make sure that you will be safe and secure abroad. Keep your most valuable belongings such as jewelry, money, expensive camera or phone in a safe place. And remember, no one else can take better care of you than you yourself.
