  2. Health is important. Make sure before you leave for the country, visit a travel clinic, 2-3 months before you leave.
  3. There are things you are never certain of. Have a emergency evacuation insurance done. So that if there is a war or a calamity in the country and you need to evacuate, you are saved from the financial losses.

Danger is everywhere. you can never be sure of your safety. But make sure to make attempts, such that if the danger arrives you are prepared to deal with it.
