#5 – Secure Your Things
Aside from investing on a good backpack, you should also consider securing your things. Purchase a lock to keep your things secured. Backpacks are definitely attractive to thieves. Since this lock could be an inconvenience, they’ll probably think twice and leave your things alone. Staying in a hostel full of strangers can be a bit cautious too, so better keep your valuables locked in a cabinet (even if you need to pay extra). You don’t want your gadgets and money to be stolen, right?
