Stay Smart, Stay Safe!

Safety First:

  • Double Up on Docs: Make copies of your important documents (passport, credit cards, etc.) and stash them separately from the originals. Think of it as a backup plan for your backup plan.
  • Light Up the Night: If you’re out after dark, stick to well-lit areas where other people are around. No shortcuts through parks or alleyways—unless you want to audition for a horror movie. When in doubt, take a taxi or catch a ride with someone you trust.
  • Drink Wisely: Avoid accepting drinks from strangers. Your drink is like your phone—never leave it unattended.
  • Lock It Down: Always lock up your accommodation and vehicle. Windows too! A secure window is a happy window.
  • Stash Your Stuff: Store valuables securely, ideally in a safe at your accommodation. Never leave valuables or important documents in parked vehicles. Your car isn’t a treasure chest.
  • Mind Your Bags: Never leave bags, backpacks, wallets, or cameras unattended in public places, especially airports, ferry terminals, or bus/railway stations. If you do, they might find new owners.
  • Less is More: Don’t carry large amounts of cash or flashy jewellery. Your wallet and neck will thank you.
  • ATM Smarts: Withdraw small amounts of money from ATMs, preferably during the day. Shield your PIN like it’s a winning lottery ticket.

 

Drive Like a Pro:

  • Road Readiness: Be aware of road conditions. The road less travelled might just be less paved.
  • Break Time: Take regular breaks. Even superheroes need a nap.
  • Journey Joy: Make the journey part of the holiday. Scenic routes are called scenic for a reason!
  • Stay Cool: Keep your cool, even when the GPS says, “Recalculating…”.
  • Cyclist Sighting: Watch out for cyclists and horses on backcountry roads. They were there first.
  • No Booze Cruises: Don’t drink and drive. Your liver and your license will appreciate it.
  • Rule Reader: Know your road rules. Check out this guide to global road etiquette: Driving Rules Around the World: A Global Guide to Road Etiquette (ezairpark.com)

 

Now, go forth and travel safely with a smile on your face and these tips in your pocket!

 

 

 

Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
