Trust your Instincts
Be Respectful of Local Dress Codes
Whilst at your chosen resort you are free to wear whatever you are most comfortable in, be considerate of local dress codes when venturing outside of the resort. Particularly, if on a tour to a local place of worship, consider the country you are in and whether it is necessary to cover up more than you normally would. A large pashmina is the perfect travel buddy for such occasions, allowing you to drape your shoulders or create a wrap around your legs, with a light weight fabric that won’t cause you to overheat in hot destinations.
If socialising with local men, be aware that what might be taken for harmless flirting in the UK, might be taken more seriously in other countries. Whilst it is important not to let this hold you back from meeting local people, which can be one of the most rewarding experiences of travelling to a new destination, be aware of your behaviour and how it might be interpreted. For added peace of mind when out and about, wear a ring on your wedding finger and pre-programme the local tourist police number into your phone.
