  • Here's just a couple things: - When leaving one country be sure and exchange ALL your local currency before leaving. - Pick-pockets are just about everywhere outside the US and you will definitely be a target. Front pocket of blue jeans is NOT a deterrent for pick-pockets. Invest in a money belt (many different kinds). - We love Hop-on, Hop-off busses to tour larger cities. - European citiy hotels charge a lot to park a vehicle and it is usually stack parked somewhere and not available for day to day use. - When leaving a hotel in a city to walk around or explore, always take the hotel business card. Taxi drivers can read the business card even if they don't speak English. - Triple check hotel rooms before leaving, it is VERY easy to leave stuff behind. - Use the safe in hotel rooms and leave your passport in it. Carry with you a photocopy of your passport (leave the real thing in the safe). - Clothes: see Rick Steve recommendations and everything must be "quick dry" to wash out (shampoo is OK) because hotel laundry is usually very expensive. - Use ATMs to get money from large banks for better exchange rate. Street ATMs are in full view of thieves. One person should watch people near by while the other person uses the machine. - Order international use of cell phones before leaving and you will probably need much more than minimums. GPS is fantastic internationally but uses a lot of data. - Forget getting any souvenirs (nobody wants them) and use the camera in your phone, don't bring a camera. - Duty free shops are a good place for booze.
  • they probably have never done it or dont know anything about it
