Every week, I’m going to take a moment to share a different tip that I’ve found incredibly useful when traveling.
Whenever you are out and about exploring a city, leave any valuables you don’t take with you (passport, extra money, jewelry, etc) in a very secure place where you are staying. If you’re staying in a hotel, most hotels have safes in the room for storage. If you’re staying in a hostel, keep anything expensive in a locker. Most hostels that I’ve seen and stayed in provide lockers to guest fro the safekeeping of valuables so they don’t get stolen by fellow travelers. Only take the necessities (money, ID, phone, maybe a camera) with you, and keep them as close to your person as possible!
