Why You Should Always Keep One Shoe in Your Hotel Safe

Carole Garnham from Go4iT Travel - Carole Garnham

Love this idea that I recently came across so thought I would share!

When it comes to stashing stuff securely in hotel rooms, a safe can be a traveler’s best friend. But for those for whom a secret stash turns into a lost item, one member of BA cabin crew has offered a top tip: travelers should keep one of the shoes they plan to wear on the return flight in the safe.
When it comes to staying in hotel rooms with personal valuables, somewhere safe is usually somewhere out of sight. But when it comes time to go home, this tactic can sometimes backfire; after all, as the old adage goes, out of sight is, of course, out of mind.
For those prone to losing their valuables, one British Airways (BA) cabin crew member offered travelers her top tip on how they can keep track of their belongings during the course of a hotel stay.
Speaking to Business Insider late last year, Ty Opoku Adjei said, “When we go on holiday, it’s natural to want to keep your valuables in the hotel room safe.” She added that it wasn’t unknown for some travelers to “make it all the way to the airport only to realize they’ve left their passport in the safe.”
Adjei explained, “My top tip is to keep one of your shoes you plan to wear on your journey home in the safe. If you do this, you’ll never leave the hotel room without checking the safe ever again… as long as you don’t forget where you put your shoe, of course!”

What are the intersections you avoid during peak traffic? We all know you can't turn right from Cumberland St into Coronation Ave when the school bell goes, but what are the other problem areas in the city?

Is Neighbourly the right forum for the PM to do a little bit of campaining.

Kathy from Spotswood

Unsolicited emails are called SPAM. Having the PM message me via Neighbourly is also SPAM. Quite frankly I didn't even bother to read the whole 'Look how great I am' spiel. Am I wrong to be offended that I am being targeted in this manner, What will happen when the other political parties cotton on to this. I am going to be inundated with political campaign crap (which I will just delete). Or is this a right just reserved for the PM.
