If you are traveling alone and going out at night, remember to leave a note. A flight attendant friend of mine gave me this tip, which she learned during training -- it's a 2 minute process that could save your life. Before you head out, write down on a piece of paper where you are going, what time you left and what you were wearing. I put the note on the desk in my room, or if I'm traveling with a colleague but heading out alone, I slip it under the door of their hotel room. If you do not want to write a note, then send a text message or email to a family member or friend with the same information. Here's a short safety video!
