    And because no one can tell where and when accidents or emergencies can happen, preparation is crucial for a safe and enjoyable stay anywhere. As a tip, make sure to highlight the information relevant to your location and needs, and keep this list somewhere accessible such as next to your landline, or somewhere it can be easily seen such as your work area or kitchen (right on the fridge). And even if we hope that nothing out of the ordinary or extreme happens to us, it will only be wishful thinking if we don’t do anything about it (or at least be ready in case it happens to us or to anyone we know that we can easily help out had we been extra prepared).

    As a final tip, include the contact details of your home embassy in the country in the list for specific inquiries and types of services that you may need while staying overseas.
