    After once spending 15 minutes at the airline counter looking through my black luggage for my black ticket wallet, I went out and bought a bright orange ticket wallet. It is always carried in a specific side-pocket on my carry-on bag. My passport and back-up credit card go in a neck pouch which is normally tied to my belt and carried down a pants leg. I keep a color photocopy of the main page of my passport someplace separate from the passport. My wife carries a copy of mine and I carry a copy of hers. We also each carry photos of the other.

    This depends on the country you are in. In the Canada, UK, Denmark I carry a photocopy and leave PP in hotel safe. In Asia and Latin America, carry PP with you. Always good to have am extra copy of your PP in a safe place in case it is lost or stolen. I typically let the US Embassy know before I visit, travel dates, where I will be staying and send my PP number just in case of a problem. Fortunately, I’ve never had any problems.

    I scan the identity page of my passport and carry only a color copy with me on daily excursions in countries that allow this. Otherwise, my passport and the bulk of my money is in a waiste wallet inside all my clothes. Only small amounts of money is kept in my pockets.

    This saved me when I was surrounded by pickpockets in the Rome subway. I felt their hands all over me, but they couldn’t get to anything and they let me go.

    While flying I keep them in an inner pocket of my travel vest. When touring they go into a heavily velcroed pocket on the side of my thigh. If I am attending a function too “formal” for cargo slacks, I have a passport pouch that has a belt loop attachment, so the pouch hangs donw inside the back of my dress slacks.

    I alway’s make up a dummy wallet put in fake credit cards and if they want it let them have it I always lock up my passport and carry a photo copy with me and watch where I’m going staying safe and be aware of what’s around you !!
