Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker lattendicht: "What's your favourite travel tip?"

When you're traveling abroad, make sure you take pictures of your ID and passport and any other important documents with which you travel, including medication prescriptions, and keep them in your phone — and make sure your phone is password and/or otherwise protected. Then don't carry your docs and phone in the same place, even if that just means two different pockets.

If you lose your documents, you'll have a much easier time if you've got copies of them on your phone. And they're sensitive enough that you might not want to download them from the cloud (or wherever) on any old computer in an emergency.

Just remember to remove them when you get home. Even if your phone has security, better not to carry them around if you no longer need them.
