Thanks for the information. I have wondered how seasoned travellers manage their important 'stuff'.
You're welcome. I suppose we 'seasoned travelers' may seem a bit more cavalier than those who are more steadfast at home... but the general ideas have been the same for all of us. We do
guard our info pretty strongly though, when we are in a foreign country.
Sure, we could get bonked on the head and things get stolen, or someone working in a hotel could pilfer the safes... back ups and copies help to justify our story, should we need to explain.
Years of data, names, numbers, pictures, accounts, copies of passport, SS card, birth certificate. .. It was stolen. He had not backed any of it up. Moral, either an external HD or lots of CDs to be stored somewhere.
I completely understand. We, unfortunately, are pretty 'data dependent.' These days there are high gigabyte hard drives available to back up one's information and that needs to be done regularly...
We once lost 'everything' due to a lightening strike, and ... uh... it wasn't pretty.* *
* *:P* Let's just say, it only had to happen once!*
