When you travel, you often get overwhelmed by new surroundings, new environment, jet lag, in addition to the airport security procedures that you have to endure.

So, when you arrive at your destination, exhausted and groggy, all you want to do is hit the pillow as soon as possible, which may lead you to make some mistakes like forgetting your carry-on luggage or other belongings in a cab, riding the wrong bus, getting to the wrong hotel, or forgetting to lock your hotel room once you’re there, which is a dangerous mistake that could cost you your life.

Yes, hotels are magnets for crimes like theft, rape, and murder, no matter how safe you may think some of them are. So, you must keep a watchful eye of your surroundings at all times and never let your guard down once you check into a hotel.
