5 Stupid Travel Myths Everyone Believes

2. Wear a Money Belt

Watching out for scams is a sad but necessary aspect of traveling, whether it’s as simple as pickpocketing or more involved, like ATM skimming or tipping.

You mean other than the fact that money belts will make you look like an idiot, are impossible to actually get money into and out of (without looking like an idiot), and don’t protect you from any non pickpocketing scams? Do you need more reasons?

Avoiding pickpockets and oakley vault scammers needn’t be so difficult, and doesn’t take much more than common sense. Pickpockets make use of some pretty transparent distraction schemes when operating, which are pretty easy to spot in action.

Our stock image service threw a surprising blank when queried with “Au oakley vault stralians + drunk,” so you’ll just have to imagine these guys surrounded by about 50 tins of cheap lager.

And because traveling is supposed to be about new experiences, travelers like to share all sorts of tips and tricks for how to meet locals.

Consider who you are to them: Unless you’re in an extremely distant corner of the globe, you aren’t new or interesting to them. You’re not an exotic bird to be fawned over.
