The US State Department has issued travel warnings within the last month that provide some very interesting and useful information for anyone, anywhere, traveling for business or pleasure to avoid being a target of inconvenience, theft, violence, or terrorism. These government reports even offer warnings about potential kidnappings by gun-toting pirates around the Horn of Africa or the Red Sea. After reading these newly published warnings, you could decide to stay home and pull the covers over your head. Or, you could go ahead and travel and enjoy yourself but plan ahead by taking along a few self-protection items that will give you peace of mind during your travels.
While you may not be headed into high-risk areas considered dangerous by terrorist-alert groups, there are many easy to use and affordable safety precautions you can take with you when you’re traveling to more common travel destinations or cruises that will make your trip more relaxed and enjoyable.
Next to your sunscreen and your comfortable shoes, we recommend you pack a variety of safety-focused items in your suitcase that are sold through Elephant Safety International as your online source for personal safety products. After you have seen these items, we guarantee that you’ll slap your forehead and think, “How could I have ever lived without these items before today?” Or, if you’re like most of us who work with EscapeArtist.com, you’ll say, “Awesome. Gotta’ have this one, and this one, and that one.” It’s all so very JAMES BOND . . .
While many items mentioned in the travel safety list (below) may not be carried onboard an aircraft, they may be checked in your luggage.
So whether you’re planning a cruise through the Panama Canal or a trip to Paris, take the time to study Elephant Safety International’s online catalog* and pick and chose from the items they offer so you can plan ahead to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime!
Bon voyage mon ami!
