One tip I would add is to limit the amount of jewelry you wear. I bought my husband and myself matching silver wedding bands. If they were stolen, I would have been out less than $20 USD. I wore a cheap watch and silver hoops for the entire vacation.

We used ATM’s throughout our vacation so we never were carrying very much cash. I also had a good lock on my suitcase. We stayed in small family owned resorts, but if our bags would have been tampered with, we would have known right away.

When you are sharing a hotel room, a little stink can go a long way. This wondamus product will prevent the most vile emptying of the bowels not to kill you or your traveling companions. Really, there have been times before I found Fresh Drop that I would literally gag after the hubby or son took a big one.
Actually it’s not a bad idea to carry a bottle with you. You never know when that awkward moment might hit, and you don’t want to die of embarrassment. Stacy’s travel tip for the day. You are welcome world.
