there are risks, but with preparation and courage the risks become small
Yea there are risks. but so are there risks in traffic, at home, at work and so on. that's just life, life without risks would be boring right? So start embracing these risks and make it an exciting thing, but keep it healthy and know your borders. first of all the wild/marine life, know what is out there, which ones are venomous and which ones are agressive. knowledge is power! know where you're going, don't go where a war is or where that are active gangs. choose the right season for the right place. prepare from home, with a overseas health insurance, international credit card, vaccins and the right visa.
