Personal security items

Hostels, couch-surfing, sketchy (and sometimes not-so-sketchy) hotels, Air B-n-B, and so on are all great ways to stay without spending loads of money. Busses and walking are inexpensive and "authentic" ways to experience a city. That being said, there is always the possibility of finding yourself in a less-than-perfect situation. There are some awesome, solid options to keep yourself safe in your room and out and about while travelling.

Note: while pepper spray is a great option for self defense here in the States, I do caution against bringing it with you while travelling. There are several countries that consider it a crime to have it in your possession. If you pack it, please check the laws of the area you will be visiting.

Quick note on this item. It is not an alarm or anything that seems directly related to personal safety, but its a portable solar charger. These days, cell phones work almost anywhere, but yours cannot help you if it is dead. The dandy little chargers need only sunlight. Pair this with a spare battery pack that you charge up while touristing around, and you're set.

This nifty gadget lets of a super loud scream if it is pressed. If someone tries to open your door without you welcoming them in.

Ok, this is definitely worth a serious looksie. Its simple, folds up nice and small to take along with you, and seems pretty unbreakable (unless someone wanted to take the whole door/frame/jam down... or they can totally break through the door like a cartoon character)

And last but not least, the tried-and-true rubber door stop. No metal parts to set off metal detectors, no issues in taking it in your carry-on, and easy to figure out...
