Test Like a typical Americans, I like to go on frequent vacations and I expect that you too like traveling. If you want to take a vacation break, it doesn't actually mean that you're guaranteed with safety. But we should never disregard the fact that danger or any trouble can always get in our way no matter where we go. Let me offer you these safety tips that you can take into consideration so that you will be guaranteed of a safe journey.

Certainly, you would be carrying any baggage when you go traveling so make sure that you, by no means, would put your address on the baggage. A case tag is more likely to be found along with your luggage and the only personal information that is advisable to be written there are your name and telephone number. So if someone had found it, he is sure to call you and return the baggage. The reason you won't want to put your full postal address on it is because if the thief finds something worth of value, they may think there's more at your home. Simply put your first and last name to assure your safe travel. Keep your case clean: When I say keep your baggage clean, I'm referring to essential papers.

Clothes and other things that you can risk losing are the only things that should be kept in your luggage. Your valuables such as charge cards, passports, and other significant papers should never be kept in your baggage. As I mentioned it earlier, if someone can access these items, he has all your personal details.

Hi Johnny, you are actually right. Putting the full address down may not be a smart thing. However, why not put another address on there :) like your friend's, so that he will get robbed. Just kidding, obviously what you can do is put down your work address and then you are fine ;) Cheers

London History

London, England Christianity, which was introduced by the Romans, shaped so much of London’s history.  In fact, the first St. Paul’s Cathedral was built in 604 A.D. in London.  King Edward the Confessor moved his court to Westminster Abbey, thus enhancing the city’s importance. King William was crowned in Westminster Abbey in 1066.  He made the Tower of London which he used as his home and fortress.  London Bridge, made of stone, was built in 1476. Medieval London was so brutal because of the Black Plague or the Black Death.  It appeared in 1348, and repeated its outbreak in 1665.  Not all of London’s mishaps lead futile.  The Great Fire of...
