Tips / Safety

Safety is a growing issue in the travel community. Travelers want to be free to travel and explore any place on Earth but not all areas are safe. Safety can be affected by war or poverty or even the climate. There are many things to consider when choosing a place to visit. Maybe it’s okay to visit a dangerous country during a solo trip, but not as safe for a large family. To ensure people can enjoy their time and experience the best parts of a country, travelers must do their research before going. This is the only way to keep travelers safe and out of harm’s way. Of course, there’s always the possibility of something terrible happening, even in the safest of countries, but the risk can be minimized with research and planning.

 

Annually, The Global Peace Index ranks the safest countries in the nation. A total of 163 countries are included in the report, making it a great resource for travelers. Most countries will be on this list and it’s accessible on the website for public access. A country is ranked based on ongoing international and domestic conflict, societal safety and security militarization. The lower the score, the higher the nation is ranked for safety.

 

According to the site, the top 10 safest countries for 2019 are as follows: Iceland, New Zealand, Austria, Portugal, Denmark, Canada, Czech Republic, Singapore, Japan and Ireland. Travelers to these countries will most likely run into no issues during their stay. The website did the research for travelers to show them how safe countries are. The website also shows the countries lower on the list and provides facts and statistics to prove their worthiness of a lower safety rating.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.

Winter Hiking Gear

For winter hikes or cold-weather activity in general, it’s important to stay warm and protected from the elements. With that said, you’ll also be pretty active and may want to be mobile, able to remove or add layers and adapt to your changing body temperature. Consider packing some gear to help you stay on top of it all.
