This will be my shortest post to date I reckon but this is definitely worth reading. My good friend Paula Morris highlighted a problem I have had in the past too so it isn’t just her. We all try to safeguard our valuables when we are staying in hostels etc and invariably we hide them under pillows or mattresses whilst sleeping.
Paula realised when on the plane to Oz that her credit cards and $200 were still under her mattress and would probably be long gone by the time she could contact the hostel….harsh lesson eh?!! OOPS
- If you are hiding your valuables make sure you are sober when you do it otherwise risk the dreaded hangover memory loss!!
- As you secrete your valuables make sure you set 2 alarms…yes two. One to wake you up and the other to remind you you have to go find your goodies…even set another alarm for just before checkout to give you a chance to charge back up to the room!!
Paula…hope you recovered your cards or were covered by insurance :)
