13. Walk purposefully and confidently.
This will help you blend with the locals, deter pickpockets and others who prey on tourists, and keep you safe.
14. Dress down.
Dressing conservatively helps you avoid unwanted attention and makes it easier to pack. Plus who wants to see the world in heels and a short skirt?
15. Pay attention to your intuition.
You know what feels right and what doesn’t. Don’t worry about hurting the feelings of people you don’t know and always err on the side of caution when you’re on the road alone.
