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.

LGBTQ+ Eureka Springs

The historic Victorian town of Eureka Springs is one of the most progressive cities in the state of Arkansas. It’s reputation as a haven for the LGBTQ+ community turned it into one of the most vibrant and culturally rich small towns in America.

The Idiotarod

Not to be confused with the similarly named event featuring our four-legged friends, the Idiotarod features humans doing what we do best — acting like idiots in public. The grueling team event features groups of five “idiots” showcasing their combined nerve and stupidity by barreling through city streets while piled on top of shopping carts. Sound fun? That’s because it kind of is.

Work and Play in Italy

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
