Before you leave the country,activate international calling on your cell phone.Be sure you know how to make an international call. If you are not carriying a cell phone with you,check with yur destination country to see if international calling cards are available there. Always carry your cell phone with you on your person,not in a purse or briefcase. Log in other companion's number and your important home state contacts on your cell phone. NEVER divulge your departure date. NEVER disclose your hotel room number to anyone. NEVER carry your passport with you when you go out.Always take a photo i.d. and cell phone with you whenever you go out. Get information on taxicabs from your hotel.

You give some great travel advice. However I like to carry my passport in my money belt hidden under my clothing. I can't imagine leaving it behind somewhere by mistake and I have even taken it snorkeling when it was around my waist in my swim safe belt. If going to a dangerous place where mugging is known to happen quite often I hide my money in about five different places. Two Canadian guys put money in the back pocket of their jeans. They got it stolen at the railway station in Brasov, Romania. Never wander alone along deserted beaches, this is something that I learned in the Maldives. I wish you safe and happy travels.

In Russia, you will be arrested if you do not have your passport on your person. You must have it with you at all times when outside the hotel.

In that case you should get copies of all important information like your passport,driver's license and may be even credit cards.Thank you very much for the information Vladilyich have a great day and cheers..
