Our suitcase was searched when we arrived in Cuba. There have been incidents where items have been stolen by airport staff, even in your home country.

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:
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.
