Tips / Destination

Stay safe during your trip to Morocco with a few simple tips and tricks.

Travel in pairs or with your group. If you’re traveling alone, stay alert and keep your possessions tucked away for safe-keeping. Lock everything in the hotel safe or have everything safely stowed in the bag you carry with you.

For those who like to get out and exercise, try to have a companion with you and avoid isolated areas — a helpful safety tip even in the United States.

Public transportation, such as trains, generally can be a safe way to travel for both locals and tourists. Keep in mind, theft is always a concern while traveling, so just remain alert and know where your important items are at all times.

Always opt for a taxi or hired car when traveling around the city at night, to and from destinations too far to walk or while impaired. Avoid city buses when you can, as they’re not considered safe for unfamiliar travelers.

Do your research and keep up with the news before your trip. Know the area in which you will be staying to feel more comfortable with your surroundings.

Oymyakon, Siberia – The Coldest Town on Earth

Oymyakon, Siberia, is literally the coldest inhabited town on Earth. The town of only 500 residents is nicknamed “The Pole of Cold” and has witnessed temperatures as low as -98 degrees. Here, where eyelashes freeze in mere moments, cars must be kept running continually to avoid a dead battery, and vegetables cannot grow naturally; locals have managed to eke out a quaint, and oddly endearing, existence.
