| Befor a Night Out
Before a night out, adopt a routine to make sure everything goes according to plans. Make sure your phone has enough battery for the night, and enough credit to make a call. Register the emergency number on your phone and keep your phone with you at all times! Count how much money is in your purse, and check how much you have on your bank account. It is better to take an amount of cash with you for the party, and your credit card in case of emergency. Be careful not to spend too much. Take an ID with you. The best piece of ID you have might be your passeport. If so, take it, but hide in a very secure pocket.
Walk around your house and make sure all windows are closed, and that you lock the door properly.
Finally, when going somewhere, never pick a taxi from the street, but call one from a registred taxi company.
You are ready to go!
