As a tourist or even an Indian woman, help out by making law enforcement acknowledge these crimes. Imagine how much more go unreported. Remember that even many Indians find some of their culture inhumane. Keep in mind in villages in India some things that happen are very inhumane to not just Westerners, but Indians alike.
Young girls have been forced to marry their rapists in rural areas. It could just be because the friend needs a lift. Your friend cannot come.
Be very careful when choosing to Couchsurf in India with men. I had a bad experience staying with an Indian man in Delhi, and from now on will be staying with other expats or with females. Remember, for each story you hear in the news, there is a nice guy in India outraged by the evil man who made the story happen. Do not clump all Indian men in the untrustworthy category. Like any country, there are good and bad. Keep an open mind, be friendly, and keep smiling. I struggled writing this post because I hate for India to have a negative image, but these are the things I would tell a friend of mine if she were to travel here alone.
Still worried about traveling solo? They have plenty of different trip itineraries and tours that you can check out here. You can buy it here. You can get a SIM card and put it in an international unlocked phone. Trabug is a travel phone that you can have shipped to your hotel in India. It has travel apps on it and makes life a lot easier, although it can be more expensive.
Determined to reach goals. Too sensitive and easily hurt. Gets angry really easily but does not show it.

Moving Motivates oneself and others. Sickness usually of the head and chest. Sexy in a way that only their lover can see. Strong-willed and highly motivated. Attracts others and loves attention. Beautiful physically and mentally. Sickness usually in the ear and neck. Loves literature and the arts.
Dislike being at home. Not having many children. Color options make it easy to spot among all the other cables I have. If you're an Apple baby, this 6 ft. MP3 player I love music when I run and workout, which I try to fit in outside of tropical latitudes. I also really like this waterproof one , too. If you're traveling with a smartphone, it can do double duty for music. Although I hate running with an enormous device Earbuds My old Apple earbuds that came with my iPod were brutal.
The rubber sheath was peeling, they killed my ears during long listening sessions, fell out when running, faded in and out, and then actually fell apart. I was horrified to discover how much these Bose Headphones are worth, but they are excellent. If you love, love, love music or running with earbuds is a regular part of your life, I'd recommend splashing out. Otherwise, I'm sure cheapies will suit. You can replace them as they break. I don't think they're worth the dent they'd put in your wallet.
That said, they are lovely on airplanes and buses, and come with a mic so I can use them for Skype when I'm in a noisy place. If you will talk often to people back home, having a headset is a dream. My RTW packing list will always have one, but you know yourself. Maybe cybercafes and smartphones will meet your needs.
If the number is American, Google voice allows you to call them for free! The rates to numbers outside America are super competitive. A google voice account definitely belongs at the top of the ultimate RTW packing list. If you're not American, consider trying to find a way to make it work for you!
Plug Adapter Kit Every international travel packing list needs plug adapters. The best kit I ever found had four very small, lightweight adapters.
The kit came with a converter, which I junked. Heavy, and probably unnecessary as cameras, laptops, etc. If you need your blow dryer or razor, you might need a converter, too. Given it's weight none and the number of times I've used it in the last several years lots I'd recommend it for any RTW packing list. To Put on My Body Sports sandals Chacos are the most versatile type of traveling shoe, in my opinion, and the only footwear you need.
Good for heat, water, walking long distances, hiking, and can adjust straps to fit gargantuan layers of wool socks if you go somewhere cold. I've worn Chacos in Bolivia with temps well below zero, slipping and sliding on a three day jungle trek in SE Asian mountains, and hustling though multiple airports and cities. Tevas are also popular. Barefoot aficionados like Xero Shoes Readers have written in liking more fashionable OluKai drop-in-heels with washable soles and easy-to-dress up or down laceless Chucks , Consider just one pair of shoes for your personal RTW packing list.
If you end up hating it, you can always add as you go! There have been times I've had more than one pair of shoes. However, the convenience was tempered by the annoyance every time I repacked and struggled to fit the pairs I wasn't wearing into my bag. Underwear x 15 The women's brand here has awesome, deep, built in pockets.
If you're a lady, you know how clutch this can be even when you're not traveling. Although I have more, 10 pairs is plenty, even for an RTW packing list. Women can get away with having extra, but your small clothing stash will require frequent washing.
Therefore, undies never run out. When my knickers wear thin, replacing them makes for a fun souvenir. It broke my heart when my favorite Brazilian pair had to be let go. Bras x 4 Wish I would have bought something that would allow me to wear racer back or neck-halter tops. Two white and two black have given me plenty of versatility. Shirts x 6 Most people in the world wear t-shirts not tank tops , and I like to blend in. My current stash contains two shirts new within the last month, one new within the last three months, and I've gotten rid of two I packed originally.
Pants x3 If you can afford them, these anti pick-pocket pants make my heart beat faster You couldn't custom-make anything this good. The traveling friend who turned me on to them likes that he can wear them to work, and that they're made from stain and tear resistant material - "also awesome for hiking and to keep things from falling out during a hike.
Jeans are nice for temperate countries, but tend to go unworn in the tropics. I mostly skip shorts to blend in and to minimize being denied entrance to places like Angkor Wat temples. Even those in capris are often turned away from specific areas.
I really like zip-off or capri-converting travel pants that allow me to have shorts when I want them. Fleece Pull-over Even if you are going to an equatorial desert, your packing list needs a fleece. Buses, airplanes, grocery stores, movie theaters, shopping malls, lobbies Since my REI fleece shrunk, I've picked up all of mine second-hand - usually in skiing destinations. A lightweight down jacket or down alternative will take up less space and maybe be warmer, but can't really double as restaurant outerwear If you tend toward outdoors instead of hors d'oeuvres, consider rocking the down.
It's "Nature-Like Nylon," which I actually like more than polypro both for its softness and no-stink-factor. This type of long sleeve is great for me as an outdoors lover polypropylene dries quickly when compared to other fabrics - especially cotton Gym Socks x 1 Light, below ankle socks are easy to carry, great for warmth on busses.
I've never regretted having a few pairs of socks on my RTW packing list. Wool Hiking Socks x 1 A wool pair of socks is handy in cold places occasional mountain towns where you wear everything you own. Also great on busses. I like Smart Wool. A dress I bought at a market in Cambodia was the perfect answer. I roll out of bed and throw it on to pay visits to shared bathrooms.
It doubles if I need something nice. Waiting to buy a a bikini until you're on the road is risky. I found out the hard way that suits at your destination may not fit at all, and can be cut in a style outside your comfort zone. Buying something online will allow you to pick a top and bottom that actually fit if, like me, you struggle with pre-matched bikinis.
Personal Care Contact Lenses I like to see. Contact solution I keep full-size bottle of solution in my bag and re-fill a travel bottle as needed. If you need this on your packing list, know this: Contacts Case Supposedly you need to change the case like you'd change a toothbrush.
If you care about this, maybe add an extra one or two to your packing list. Rimless Glasses Come in handy when I don't want to wear my contacts. You can order cheaply through Zenni Optical. I had a great experience, but lots of other reviewers didn't.
I started out with six boxes of 20, back when I knew I'd have a car in NZ for a year. Despite my feelings on carcinogens in bug spray, I strongly prefer not to use mainstream rayon-and-chemical-laden tampons.
Which, if they're available at all, are all you'll get in a developing country. I like this kind. If this is an item you use already, read up on availability in your first destinations and definitely put a few months worth on your RTW packing list. Shampoo Available at roadside shops, , everywhere in mL 3oz sizes - perfect!
You can also buy sachets a lot of places, which ultimately seems more wasteful and is definitely more expensive. I know y'all are going to think I'm a total crazy-pants Sounds insane, I know. Here's how I do no shampoo , while still looking normal. Baking soda is a bit gritty, so it exfoliates. I either mix it with water to form a paste and store it in a small bottle or dip my wet fingers in a little container of powder. I don't know how it works with makeup. Baking soda does triple duty as shampoo and deodorant, not to mention battling shoe stink and other travel smellies.
Deodorant - Baking Soda "Normal" chemical-laden deodorant is available everywhere - , pharmacies, roadside stands, etc. No reason to bring extra. I've been using baking soda for 18 months, and I love it! I never ever, ever have B. And I couldn't have said that at any point during the last few decades of my life. Travel Towel - medium Some places provide towels, some don't. I'm committed to keeping a travel towel on my RTW packing list, despite having adopted a slower travel style that sees me using it less and less.
If this is your first big RTW trip, I think it really pays to have one. These things are notorious for stinking and needing washed often.
I'm glad I have a medium so it takes up little space. If you don't get one of these travel towels , I'd recommend a washcloth. It is funny how visitors starting a trip in Singapore compare experiences and enjoyment about their visit compared to someone who has been elsewhere in SE Asia previous to arriving.
Equally speaking where travellers can't find something similar to benchmark a cost, they spend small fortunes often without grumbling and normally continue to moan about small costs regardless of circumstances e.
You probably get it by now that we are not rational creatures and there is little we can do about it, but the biggest lessons are to be learnt when it comes to budgeting your trip and the day to day spend. Understanding that time is money and saving unnecessary travel time or hardship by spending more is worthwhile and that - again - something costs what it costs, comparing one part of the world with another really is fruitless. If it is too expensive abroad does not mean you need to skip it when away or feel bad for splashing out just budget correctly.
If you would consider it an unnecessary luxury at home it probably is when you are away. If you are looking to keep costs to a minimum, stay away from countries with strong currencies, rich cities and surround yourself as much as possible by those locals and travellers on a similar budget to yours. Almost everyone feels poor on Monaco's Casino Square!
Keep your eye out for: We have added this logo to the greatest offending countries in the summary section. It's a sorry fact, but most countries after an economic or similar crisis will become cheaper - for example Ukraine in , Argentina in , South Africa in and Russia in A smart way to travel much cheaper. It is also important to be wary of budgets quoted on travel blogs that are not current.
Movements in currencies can make a big difference. For more detailed daily average costs please refer to the country summary section on this site, where suggested basic daily budgets are listed for over 85 nations. Or for the most detailed information, a country guidebook or planning guide is recommended. You could also try with a pinch of salt another resource to get an idea of daily costs and record: This site is also a good guide, it breaks down a 18 month trip into total spent per country and categories.
Ultimately the core element that will define your daily spend is whether you are a saver naturally frugal or a spender someone who finds it hard to resist temptation and how much comfort you are used to in your daily life. How do I take all these funds? As you have no doubt established you are going to need a fair supply of money to cover your trip.
In which form and how to take these funds can pose something of a dilemma. Cash is, of course, king all over the world, but do you really want to take all your funds in cash? Obviously taking large amounts of cash is a risky strategy and it's best that the cash you set off with from home be - give or take - no more than enough for your first week. Whatever cash you do take, in whatever form it should be well hidden including, not to be overlooked, an emergency back-up cash stash.
Find out what you are insured for and remember it's probably all at your own risk. The best way to get money almost anywhere is out of an ATM using a debit card MasterCard Cirrus or Visa Plus to draw from your bank account or with a pre-loaded travel card.
This offers numerous pros such as getting favourable daily exchange rates, running no risk of being ripped off, having the security of a PIN code, keeping track of your rates and balance on-line and having the option to specify exactly how much money you want to change. Okay in some countries outside of big towns you're not going to find plentiful ATMs, but you will almost certainly find them in larger cities - all over the world - that you will use as transport hubs and always in capital cities.
There are very few exceptions to this, with every country covered on this site Iran aside and practically every country in the world having at least a handful of international ATMs, with new sites coming into use everyday. Worth noting is that much of the information posted on the internet about where has an ATM and where does not, is out-dated and false.
You can check exactly where you can get money from on either Visa , Amex or Mastercard's website. Generally you will be charged a fee by your bank for making withdrawals abroad: It is hard to avoid this apart from to find your bank abroad, but you can do a lot to cut overall fees. It is always cheaper to use a debit card that a credit card to withdraw money, although you can find deals that give reduced rates.
Any recommendations of Canadian, Kiwi and Irish banks that don't charge commission or have good rates are very welcome. This link has details for USA and Canadian users, but does have some mis-information and fails to regonise the various account by the same bank. You preload cards with cash before use. There are many options but with hidden fees abound, so using the best of the bank ATM card deals is normally cheaper.
Typical bank and travel card ATM fees ATM fees can really add up and if you are wise being careful with the cash you will make fewer larger transactions than many smaller ones.
Fees comprise of 4 parts: Cash exchange will have a similar spread normally higher and travel cards have some of the lowest spreads. Money on arrival You will normally find an ATM at the airport if arriving at a major international one, but just in case you don't or the ATM is empty, always carry some hard currency cash.
The same goes for borders where there are rarely ATMs, but nearly always change places or money changers for some 'see-you-over' cash until you reach a bigger city with better rates.
It's a good idea to make sure you know what the exchange rate is before you reach a country, preventing you getting ripped off and generally letting you know how much the room you are checking into or taxi you hail is costing.
This exchange rate can be found on the Internet with ease and noted before you leave. The FX Cheat Sheet is a great tool. When changing money always re-count and check your money carefully. Small private exchange booths, that are common in most cities, will normally give better rates than banks. Changing on the street is only worthwhile in a few situations: In the event of a black market exchange rate, changing where you are staying, at a travel agent or other established business is the best bet.
Travellers Cheques Travellers cheques are, as you will no doubt know, a safer option compared to cash, but with a number of drawbacks. Firstly they are pretty prehistoric these days with travel money cards replacing them. Secondly the commission required to buy and sell them and thirdly in some places they can be somewhat of a pain to change restricting you to bank opening times and long drawn out procedures.
This is not always the case, but can often be when you need the cash the most and are in a hurry. The irony is where it's easy to cash cheques you are going to find numerous international ATMs and vice versa. Any international brand of travellers cheques will be fine Visa or American Express. Travellers cheques do have a place where ATMs can't be found and as a good backup, but can also be costly and a pain - a pain in less developed countries not so much in developed ones - ATM use - if possible - is generally much more practical and the way to go.
Emergency Funds Of course keep your cash, debit and credit cards separate to reduce the risk of losing access to all funds, but disasters do happen or you just run out of money. Money wires, such as those from Western Union then save the day. There are many ways to send cash - best to check online and give the details to a friend or family back home. You'll normally find offices in remote locations, even where there is no bank. ATMs really are everywhere in major cities and always have an English language option.
Not all ATMs you find abroad can access international networks, but this varies widely from country to country. For example, in Pakistan you will find tonnes of ATMs, but only a few international ones in each big city, as opposed to India or Sri Lanka where you can't walk metres in many a town centre without finding one. Simply look for the Visa Plus or Cirrus symbol you see on your card.
Generally speaking ATMs work on both networks, but this is not always the case and every now and then you find Cirrus or Visa Plus only machines. Therefore, if on a long trip it is handy to have say your partner's card or credit card on an alternative network as a back-up. Okay, one word of warning regarding ATM withdrawals. So common sense says don't rely totally on your ATM card. If you take a look at the country summaries section you will be able to get a good gauge, country by country, of the best way to handle your money.
There are also rare cases when due to artificial exchange controls e. Venezuela, Argentina or Zimbabwe pre-dollarisation using an ATM will get you a terrible official rate and you need to change hard currency [on the black market]. Overall, the best general strategy to get at your money is always a combination of methods and back ups i. And finally on the subject of cards - it's recommended that you do not carry your card ATM or credit around with you at all times if you can help it.
For various reasons, it's best kept in your main bag unless you are using it. Credit cards are useful, but much more so in developed countries. In less developed countries they can be used for larger purchases e. However, they can be used to obtain cash advances in most banks world-wide always with a commission - not the best value way to obtain funds, but extremely useful to fall back on when having ATM problems and from ATMs.
For all uses MasterCard or Visa are your best bet. If you just take one, go with Visa. Remember to consider your bills piling up at home with interest being charged and the fact if you are using them to draw money, it makes sense to be in credit. Paying more money onto your card before leaving home, setting up a standing order or paying yourself online whilst away is prudent. Certainly when buying a lot of travellers cheques or taking cash to start off, if you can help it there is little point changing your money twice paying commission each time.
Euros are a fine currency to take to any major city worldwide. Green backs are always accepted with open arms even in places like Iran or Cuba although it is cheaper to change euros. Money changing tricks Be warned about old style dollar bills which won't be welcomed and other money changing tricks you might come across when changing in shady circumstances. Money changing tricks are one of the easiest way to get burnt whilst abroad, especially if doing so on the street.
Two things to be aware of: Firstly, your original money being returned to you as a fake or lower domination note when the deal is voided by the changer. If you are worried you could make a note of serial numbers of larger bills before you pass them over to make sure you get back the original. The second thing to be wary of is a successful change when the money you receive is no longer bank recognised or carefully folded to deceive.
Only change money on the street where you can see it is day-to-day practice of locals and not in large amounts. Private exchange booths are your best bet to change money and always easy enough to find along with banks.
Changing cash is on the whole the easiest thing to do whilst away. If you get dollars or euros back from a change place, hold it to the light and look for the silver strip. Don't take old designs of notes. It does happen that less than mint condition or old style high value notes will be unwanted. Immunisations and malaria prophylaxis If you are heading somewhere exotic and developing you will of course need to head down to a clinic and get a variety of jabs before disappearing.
Most of the important ones will be boosters of shots you probably had as a child. There are several others, but it is worth thinking twice about being sold on having the 'whole package' - it all depends on where you are going and how you feel about the risk.
Nevertheless, it is important to warn against the foolhardy approach and 'I'll take the risk' attitude you might find travellers on the road with normally regarding Malaria. You'll also note things have tried to be kept as simple and concise as possible tackling a big subject. A word to the wise No one connected with this site is a doctor and therefore the information in this section should be taken with that consideration in mind.
However, this is a good place to start and is evidence of how we have slowly unravelled the mystery of travel health and especially Malaria medication. So what jabs do I need? You typically need for developing world travel regardless of what country you are visiting the following shots: It's only fair to warn you, you're going to feel a little groggy after some of these shots. This will of course vary from country to country in places like Ireland or Switzerland, it is unlikely you will get anything free!
Unless you already use the stuff, I'd say buy to buy it until you experience a time you wish you had it. Vaccines Your needed vaccines depend on your travel plans. Worst bus ride ever, so crowded, so cold, SO many stares 7. The acid reflux worse with nexium it would have to be!
