Escapes: Beating Pickpockets

Escapes: Beating Pickpockets

During our last holiday in Paris, I was the target of some pickpockets who were trying to use diversionary tactics to pilfer the lint of out my pockets (I should just wear a shirt that says, "Don't Bother, I'm a Blogger"). Fortunately, I was able to guess that Monsieur wasn't on the up and up, and noticed his lackey immediately (he was sneaking with the subtlety of Chris Farley in Beverly Hills Ninja)...

Traveling abroad, tourists are often targeted because we're loaded with easy to pawn items and are normally carrying serious amounts of funds. The next time we jump the pond, a travel belt like this might be a good pickup so we can carry our lint collection without worry. Check out a video of the belt in action below:

The belt will hardly set you back and possibly ensure your vacation is remembered as one of happy experiences instead of regrettable mistakes.
