Travel advice & Safety

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

I have always said better a life well lived than a life lived in fear. However even the most intrepid travellers should take on board the advice given by large organisations and governments when they put out travel advisories. Then if you are still going to that city or country you will at least be well informed of any potential dangers and best placed to avoid them. As with everything in this life, its always up to you to make up your own mind and take your own precautions.

Here is a list of links to a cross section of reputable sites that should give you a good insight into what is going on in the world:

The Australian Government - Department of Foreign Affairs

US Department of State

Foreign and Commonwealth Office (UK)

Government of New Zealand

Centre for Disease Control and Prevention - An Independent User Forum where questions are answered by other travellers and destination residents.
