The book says,
Use a money belt when you travel on vacation. You want to safeguard your money, and slipping it into a lightweight money belt that fits around your waist or inside your trousers is a far better option than carrying it around in a purse or backpack, especially if either of those have a long shoulder strap.
Thieves can come up beside you, cut the strap and be gone before you realize what just happened.
Pickpockets can clean your cash, credit cards, passports, and identification out of your pocket just as easily.
It's a crime as old as currency itself. You want to be happy when traveling, not sitting at a police station seeking help in recovering your stolen property.
Crimes don't just happen here at home. It can happen to you anywhere that you travel. Stay diligent when you are away and protect yourself from things such as this. Plan ahead.
Just For Today: I will do what I have to do in order to protect myself.
