How to Travel Abroad Safely
Travelling abroad is always riskier than being in a safe country where you know your environment. Travelling to certain locations abroad will carry more inherent risks, due to the nature of the place that you are travelling to. If it is a place where there are riots, protests, political unrest or severe deprivation, there are more risks likely to be encountered.
