Manila Times - - LIFESTYLE - Re PHOTO FROM DREAMSTIME.COM

TRAV­EL­LING safe while hav­ing fun is the fore­most con­sid­er­a­tion of any wan­der­ing ad­ven­turer. Pass­ports, wal­lets and credit cards are as im­por­tant as life it­self so that us­ing travel gear that se­cures these ne­ces­si­ties is a must in this day and age.

To guide read­ers in this sig­nif­i­cant travel prepa­ra­tion,

A light­weight, wa­ter­proof bag with breath­able shoul­der and waist straps looks into the lat­est line of Pac­safe travel bags, whose fea­tures are de­signed to pre­vent tourists from los­ing things wher­ever they go.

The brand’s col­lec­tion of travel bags and car­ryon gear con­tain­ers are en­gi­neered with a bevy of safety mech­a­nisms – slash­guards that re­sist sharp punc­tures, RFIDblock­ing tech­nol­ogy that pro­tects pass­ports and credit cards against iden­tity theft, an­chor straps and ca­bles to hook bags on any un­mov­ing fix­ture, and a va­ri­ety of se­cu­rity locks and zip­pers to keep bags un­opened by any­one other than the owner. Founded 18 years ago by a pair of avid Aus­tralian trav­ellers, Pac­safe was born out of a real travel threat: that gears might be stolen by thieves tak­ing ad­van­tage of un­know­ing tourists. With that in mind, the duo came up with an anti-theft back­pack pro­tec­tor, made from flex­i­ble stain­less steel mesh that forms an im­pen­e­tra­ble bar­ri­cade against thieves. As such, be­sides safety, func­tion­al­ity is also the brand’s key fea­ture with wide spa­ces and mul­ti­ple com­part­ments in ev­ery style to en­sure or­ga­nized and com­pact travel with­out fear of los­ing im­por­tant items.

Pack for has­sle-free travel

Most peo­ple tend to bring too much when trav­el­ing abroad, less­en­ing mo­bil­ity and time for fun. Trav­el­ers can opt to leave valu­ables at home or keep these in a safe when ven­tur­ing out of their lodg­ings. For on hand cash, an idea is to hide ex­tra cur­rency in suit­cases - tion hap­pens, same with per­sonal medicines and med­i­cal his­tory pa­pers.

Pay heed to cul­ture for an im­mer­sive trip

Wise trav­el­ers are known n to stay safe by blend­ing in withh the lo­cals and be­ing dis­creet with their pres­ence. Dig­i­tal guides [Google maps] are bet­ter than largege pa­per maps and at­tach­able smart­phone art­phone lens are safer than large cam­eras. Ob­serv­ing cul­tural nu­ances,ces, rules and reg­u­la­tions and eve­nen dress codes of a lo­cal­ity also helpp greatly in avoid­ing the spot­light the wrong way.

Pre­pare for the worst

As wise men say, “ex­pect the un­ex­pected so when the un­ex­pected hap­pens you won’t be dis­ap­pointed.” Trav­el­ers should bring along mul­ti­ple copies of im­por­tant doc­u­ments, leave an itin­er­ary or check in with loved ones reg­u­larly and more im­por­tantly, get good travel in­sur­ance be­fore de­par­ture.
