Safety in Barcelona…


Okay, so I found these safety “anti-theft” bags by pacsafe at MEC in Toronto. They weren’t cheap but they do look to be good at deterring unwanted, touchy, feely, grabby thieves who want to take your money!! And although, I just display female secret pouches, there are just as many for men available on line or in the store.

MEC – Mountain Equipment Coop

Now you can see inside as to how secure this bag really is! Check out those locks! Now I know nothing is 100% but this looks very good to me. Just remember, not to put the bag down!!!

The lock system so that zippers stay closed. Ha, ha, ha…I like the pun on that one. In this case, we really do want the zippers to stay closed!



For those South America travellers….a little extra steel packing material to ensure the utmost in safety.

Just remember, do not put the bag down or leave it unattended. Do not glance away for a second, do not get distracted by cute little small children tugging at your clothing, or a pack of young girls with shopping bags (that’s where they put your stuff after they have stolen it!). Thieves come in all sizes and ages and attractiveness. So don’t be fooled.

Because nobody can help you if you put the bag down on a chair or a bench or a table, even if its just for a second. Woosh! It could be gone.

Happy Travelling!

It’s band aid season in Toronto…

band aid

Its June 09 today in Toronto and finally we have sun. When Toronto gets sun, it is the best sun you can imagine. Not too hot, not too intense, not too crispy. Sun in Toronto is like perfection. The city that everyone wants to move to and good weather. It is a difficult combination to match. But when there is no sun, it can be a dull place.

Toronto has food trucks and variety of scenery and people who dress to be themselves. I never get bored of people watching in Toronto. We have every culture in the world and everyone is doing their own thing. I mean like embracing their own thing. Working it to the bone. If you get the chance, take the subway in Toronto and enjoy the best people watching you can find….some might even say better than New York. Because its band aid season in Toronto and the weather is beautiful and everyone is wearing shoes that hurt their feet. Just look at all the band aids on their feet as you walk into the subway and enjoy the people watching!
