We do not frequent the Champs Elysees in Paris and I would consider that the only place to perhaps avoid during major events – we were in Paris for election day. I will never hesitate to return to these places that we love just because there has been an incident. My family lives near the light rail station in Portland where two men were killed recently – no one is planning to leave that area. As you say, you just need to maintain vigilance, no matter where you are. Next trip in September includes both England and France. Thanks for the wonderful posts.

Comment on Why Pack Light? by Edward Johnson http://adventureswithsarah.net/why-pack-light/#comment-3627 Sat, 24 Jun 2017 13:03:45 +0000 http://adventureswithsarah.net/?p=2906#comment-3627 My wife and I completed a week in India followed by a 16 day cruise and a day in Greece. We each used one carry-on bag, mine a Patagonia MLC, hers a Timbuk 2 bag. If it didn’t fit, it didn’t go. When we returned there were only about two items in each of our bags that were never used. For us less is better and the items packed must do “double duty”.

I think you hit the nail on the head with regard to intuition. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut! Looking forward to more info about cell phone use overseas.

Thanks for acknowledging the reality of today’s world and offering proactive suggestions. The news is full of terrible events occurring in Europe so it’s good to have a reminder that those are exceptions and just like here at home ( in the Seattle area) can be avoided (to a degree) with a bit of thought and planning. I am not done with Europe yet! 😉

I always have money and credit cards in 2 different places: a credit card and minimal cash in crossbody wallet that can go into larger day bag; passport, cash and credit card in hotel room safe. I am re-thinking leaving valuables in the hotel safe and will probably have them in a money belt under my clothes. If there were an attack or disruption of transportation, I would have passport, cash and credit card to manage emergency and even get home if necessary. Sarah says all you really need is your passport and a credit card!

I visited Paris 90 days after Bataclan. Never felt safer anywhere. The #64 bus driver recognized me from my cross town trip to Pere Lachaise and waited for me to cross the street to catch the return bus 90 minutes later. The cab driver waited until I was safely inside a nearly empty church for an early morning organ concert. A man on the metro gave me his seat and said “Thank you for coming to Paris.”
