Those interested to travel as often as possible, but in completely safe conditions will love this section of World Nomads dedicated to travel safety. You can read a lot of information about the safety, mainly if you travel with children or if you are about to visit an area with high risks. Many there are not so many problems as you may read in the media or maybe there are areas about which experienced travellers will warn you to be more cautious. All you have to do is to ask your question and wait for an answer and continue planning your trip.
As simple as that.
