When preparing for travel you can also prepare for terrorism. Since while you are touring a country most likely you're not empty handed. You probably have a camera, maybe a video camera, water, guidebooks and maps. All packed in a handy carrying bag. So while you're packed up to see the sites why not pack a little terrorist protection – A first aid kit. They come in all sizes. You can buy them pre-packaged or you can make them yourself. Just do a little research on the internet to get a checklist of what things you should include (bandages, iodine, masks, etc.) You can even create two. A smaller version for your day-pack and a bigger one for your luggage.
