How to avoid your room being robbed while traveling

This is also a good tip. My sister went to Europe in high school and had all her jewelry stolen out of her suitcase. She was young and didn't think to put it in her carry on. Seems like common sense, but inexperienced travelers might not know.

Holy cow, naive me!


I hadn't even thought that the safe could be "un-safe"!


Thanks for the tips...now it's time for brainstorming for other places to hide the wedding rings, before we use them!

I always make a point of taking the following:

Driver's License

ATM card

Credit Card



I have scanned a copy of my passport and e-mailed it to my yahoo account, so that even if it gets stolen I have access to the number.


Then I always keep my ATM card and passport on me, preferably in a little travel pouch that goes under my pants. I carry a small of cash in a separate wallet, in a pocket or small purse that is easy to get at. That's what people see.

I leave the credit card and driver's license in my safe (unless I'm driving). That way if I get robbed, I can still carry-on.



Then it's just the basics. Always lock your door. Never be seen with large amounts of cash. Do not look confused or distracted and always be aware of your surroundings. Most places are safe, but there are always scrupulous people in the world. I think someone already said that if someone is set on robbing you, they will. Be sure you have a back up plan.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
