What to do with passport?

24 Nov 2010 Kaitlyn asked

HI i am going to New Zeland next year for the 13 day grand adventurer and can't wait! But i was just wondering what do you do with your passport when you are travelling or doing activites? I've no idea what to do, leave it in the room, have one of those pocket things you put around your neck or what? Thanks

    I did the scenic southern back in August and I pretty much left the passport in my suitcase. The only time you’ll be likely to need it would be for ID in the pubs.

    Passport only saw the light of day at the airport. Always kept driver’s license on me though.
