Rule #8. Save your relatives’ and your local embassy’s phone numbers in your smartphone.
Write down all necessary phone numbers as well as your e-mail in the official language of the country you’re visiting. Additionally, you can screenshot these and use it as your phone’s wallpaper so someone can see the numbers even if your phone is locked.
Rule #7. Don’t drink alcohol with strangers.
An opportunity to meet new people while drinking in a bar seems like fun, but your night can end up very bad. The least terrible thing that might happen is that you lose your money and other personal items.
Rule #6. Eat in places where the locals eat.
If you don’t know where to eat in a foreign place, take a look at the street cafes where locals usually meet. Additionally, if we’re talking about Asia where people adore spicy food, ask for “mild” when placing your order.
And don’t forget to wash all fruits and vegetables with distilled water, no matter where you buy them. If you still have doubts, remove the skin.
