You should maintain contact with at least one person back home, especially if you’re travelling solo. By letter, fax, e-mail or telephone, let that person know where you are and where you’re heading next.
Of course these days you can always keep people updated on sites like Facebook and Twitter too!
Off travelling for the day? You should leave a note in your room explaining where you’re going. If you run into trouble, at least there will be clues to follow.
Always carry a business card from your hotel or B&B. If you get lost, approach another woman on the street and show her the address on the card. She may be able to point you in the right direction.
