Travel Tips

There are some interesting places in the world, and international currency rates with respect to the dollar ain’t half bad now. But before you go packing the sunscreen and your flip flops, keep this in mind:

Nothing can eff up your family vacation more then one of your clan not making it back for his return trip.

Although many factors should be considered in any direct correlation (unstable governments, lack of religious influence, lack of civil liberties, corrupt or ineffectual police forces, a greater percentage of the population living in at poverty status) maybe the best dot connecting can be seen in how the heavy hitters feel about gun rights. Both Brazil and India exert draconian authority over their citizen’s ability to either own or carry firearms.

We could look at capital punishment as a factor as well, although personally, I think this is a stretch. Brazil does not have it, and India rarely uses it. Iceland and Monaco (those nations considered the safest) also do not use the death penalty.

Most likely, internal factors ingenious to each nation, play probably the greatest role in why they are unsafe.

Sadly, Brazil was on my top 5 vacation destinations in my lifetime, but can easily find a replacement for nice beaches and scantily clad women.
