Cover Your Ass

International travel is one of the most exciting things you can do in life. It's mind-broadening. It breaks down biases and bigotry. It opens one to new cultures and ideas.

And while it is true that more people are killed in domestic auto accidents each year than are killed in attacks or accidents abroad, there is one thing that you can do to help mitigate certain circumstances if the crap hits the fan in the country you happen to be vacationing in.

The Bureau of Consular Affairs runs the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program which allows the State Department to keep track of you in the worst case scenarios, aiding them in getting you out in the case of evacuation, or simply by helping to get your passport replaced faster if you left it in the cab the night before. Register with the State Department before you head out at: http://travel.state.gov/travel/tips/registration/registration_4789.html.
