    The dumbest thing ive ever seen even though it wasnt real was in the movie Taken when not even 5 minutes after the girl and her friend got off the plane her stupid friend told that random man where they were staying.

    I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

    Really helpful video, thanks! We also started travelling and vlogging now and were wondering how you take care of your electronics? Do you have a portable safe? Or do you just choose your accommodations carefully?

    The last time I went to Paris, I went to Sacre Coeur and there were groups of people almost blocking the paths up to it, so you had to go between them – you could see it was a scam – and they tried to put a bracelet on my wrist and would then ask for money for it. It was horrible and I didn't spend long there because I felt so on edge.

    Peru! I had both my credit and debit card info stolen, they made a new card and took money out of the ATM in both cases. The bank called me when I was in Chile, The ATMs there mostly seem to have a device that reads cards and I will definitely be more likely to bring a wad of cash to exchange money ANYwhere I go from now on.First my debit was disabled, then my credit, when I was trying to buy a plane ticket out of Chile to go home! Very very inconvenient and frustrating. Peru really left a bad taste in my mouth, unfortunately. Good video, Nadine!

    Here's a tip for walking around with open pockets (basketball shorts etc) Even just any clothing.
    While walking when you are swaying your arms, every sway forward and backward make sure your thumbs brush up against your pockets to make sure your things are still there. Does that make sense? If not ask me any questions by replying below.

    It gets easier with time and you don't think about it. This is how I always walk no matter where I am. I've caught someone red handed and gotten them arrested this way in my hometown (Stockton, CA. Shitty place lol. Guard is always up) It's something most criminals/pit pocketers don't look for and an extremely easy way to check your pockets consistently instead of walking around with your hands in your pockets. That's just awkward.

    Hope this tip helps! Fanny packs are the shit too. A small one to tuck under your shirt is the best.

    Hi Nadine, I am your fan from china, lots of people in china love your video, but they can't understand English very well, can I translate your vlog and put in China's website let these people to see?, you know Youtube is also blocked in China.

    Love all of these tips! I am guilty of keeping my phone in my back pocket and placing my wallet or phone on the table at restaurants. Luckily, neither one has been stolen!

    My grandparents were in Barcelona last year when a young couple came up to them and asked for change for train ticket. They asked for directions and meanwhile somehow managed to steal all their cash!

    Awesome video and so true!!! I've also found that, if I have to GPS where I'm going, memorizing the directions beforehand so that I'm not walking around, distracted, with my phone out, is really helpful . . . love your videos! 🙂

    I've fallen for scams in the US where I live where people tell sob stories of their incredible misfortune and need a certain amount to pay for a tow truck or tank of gas or whatever.
    Also in Morocco, assume any local that talks to you is trying to get money out of you. Offering to show you the way to a place and then asking for money afterwards is the most common one.
    For anywhere, if a person asks "is this your first time in (country/city)?" and then "do you speak any (local language)?" Very likely they want to take advantage of you.

    I have really begun to get into the idea of traveling over the past few months. I’m still trying to convince my parents to even think over the idea before all of the planning comes into play. I was just wondering if anybody had any tips or ways that I could reapproach the subject with my parents to show that traveling would be good.

    Love your videos! I recently shared one of your videos to a facebook group that I created called Safe Travel for Women. I hope to share more of your videos with them in the future. Here is the link if you want to check out the group. http://bit.ly/safetravelforwomen
