My friend and I are travelling around Europe with Topdeck in May/June 2013. I’m interested in what people found worked for them in regards to day bags/packs?
We’re females aged 22/23 and we’re worried if this make us more of a target for pick-pocketers etc? We’re quite travel savvy and switched on so we’ll be well aware of our surroundings however we don’t want to constantly be worrying about our personal belongings. Naturally we will just be carrying the bare basics (water, camera, money etc) so our day bag doesn’t have to be big and we will wear money belts for our passports etc.
Is it worthwhile paying a little extra money for bags such as Pacsafe? Or will a basic back pack/shoulder bag be sufficient?
