BEFORE LEAVING FOR YOUR TRIP:
1. SECURE THE HOUSE.
Make sure all electronic appliances are turned off and unplugged if no one will stay home to watch the house.
2. ASK A TRUSTED NEIGHBOR TO CHECK ON THE HOUSE FROM TIME TO TIME.
Leave a copy of your itinerary and contact numbers with him/her so s/he can immediately alert you of any emergencies.
WHILE IN TRANSIT:
1. CHOOSE SAFE SPOTS.
While licensed modes of public transportation are generally reliable, there's no harm in choosing the safest spots to sit on: seats near the emergency exits for planes, and the rear for buses and trains.
2. STAY ALERT.
As you travel, don't make it obvious that you're a tourist--people might take advantage of you and the situation.
