    Young ladies should travel together and not alone. Never allow yourself to be separated from your friends. Do not go off alone with someyyou do not know. Stay in well lit public places. Do not accept an open container from anyone. You might be surprised as to what was put in it.

    Only stay in single entry, reputable hotels preferably with doors locked after 11pm. Do not tell strangers where you are staying. Stay away from Uber. The unlicensed car could be anyone. Carry where you can.

    Do not take expensive jewelry. Minimum of cash. Have copies of credit cards, contacts and photo ID for just in case. If it feels wrong it is. Trust your gut.

    Make sure to go to confession afterward.

    Sending this to my daughters. ETA: I especially like his line (and I'm paraphrasing), 'dressing immodestly is like holding a strip of bacon out in front of a snapping dog.' Yep, that one's gonna get used around Casa Annie's this summer.

    I found this one. I think he's got some good ideas. I like the idea of using the belt on the door-close.

    This is what I'm trying to drive home to my daughter. She wants to have this 'big adventure', thinking it'll be sort of 'empowering' or something. I think it's too dangerous.

    Hah! 'Once a Catholic', as they say, 'always a Catholic.'

    Big mistake girls make all the time. Kidnaping is to the sex trade is not a pretty picture. She is not old enough to see the danger only the pretty shinny stuff. Same things I tried to drive home on my daughter. Bad things happen when you culled out from the herd. Suspect everyone’s motives. Hard to have a great time with your guard up but that is what it is.

    Never stay on the bottom floor. I try to stay on the 2nd floor. I figure I can drop out of the window if I need to with at worse a sprained ankle. But I don't worry about someone coming in thru the window.

    In addition I should think it's much easier for non-hotel guests would-be predators to wander into first floor rooms.

    I have travelled many times by myself, and I was never attacked, kidnapped, robed or anything. Usually I stay on the cheapest hotel and it was all fine (except for getting a electric shock at the shower).
    As an advice for not being robbed: do no look like you have something worth stealing. Use common luggage and clothes, leave the fancy stuff at home. Stop being such a mother hen, Annie 😂
    Your daughters trip will be fine. Girls can travel alone for sure. Tell her to have fun on her adventure.
    (It looks like that the guys in this forum forgot that they once were young too).
