hey guys!
i know this is a commonly talked about discussion and i have read all the previous dscussions, but im still not at peace of mind.
Im doing european inspirations in december, and im thinking of taking a shoulder bag that sits at my hip, zip facing me. i was thinking of wearing the strap under my coat, and the main pouch part at my hip.
evryone i talk to is saying that it is VERY EASY to get pick-poketed in europe and i was wondering if this is a safe method to carry my money, camera phone and whatever else i need.
Ill most likely have my hand on it A majority of the time, and only take out the amout of money i need for the day as well as debit/credit card.

Also, is it safe to leave your passport (if you dont need it) and extra mooney locked in your suitcase at the hotel??

Thanks guys,
i know its been discussed, but im a bit of a stress pot.

Questions?
