guarding your property
- Do not take with you un necessary valuables or documents. They will be safer at your hotel.
- Cash is never a good idea. Carry only small amounts needed for small purchases. You can pay almost every where with a credit card. Alternatively you can use a traveller cheque.
- Keep your wallet in a pocket not easily accessible. The pocket at the back of you trousers will be the less safe.
- Wear shoulder bags and cameras with the straps across your body.
- Don't leave tempting objects in a vehicle.
- Avoid poorly lit streets.
- Visit the parks during the day.
- Travel in the train in the first carriage or in the one with the blue lantern which has a guard.
- Taxis are always the safest way of travelling around.
- Hitch-hiking in Australia is not a good idea, unless you are in the middle of no-where, starving to death.
- Remote towns they do not have a night life. Try to reach your destination before the night fall.
You ask too much if you expect a police officer to speak a foreign language, unless is not a foreigner.
