Heading to a party destination is probably one of the most exciting trips you will ever have. You can meet with friends and have the time of your life. However, it also comes with a risk. You will be in a different location while possibly intoxicated. Here are some tips to have fun and stay safe.
Make sure the party area is safe
The first thing to ensure is the safety of where you’re heading. Look for popular destinations where people party and go crazy. Island destinations are usually famous since everyone goes to these places for party. Whether it’s an outdoor or indoor area, the place must be secured.
Don’t drink too much
You already know your limits when it comes to drinking. Make sure you don’t go beyond what you’re supposed to drink. If you believe you’ve already had enough, stop. Besides, you won’t enjoy everything if you’re too drunk.
Bring a friend
You can’t go to these parties alone. Again, with the possibility of getting drunk, you’re placing yourself at risk. You can also have someone protecting you if things go wrong. Besides, it doesn’t hurt to have a wing man if you’re putting yourself out there.
Assign a designated driver
Plan how you’re getting back to your hotel after partying. It must go without saying that you can’t drink and drive. It’s too risky and you might also get caught for doing it. The designated driver in your group will ensure everyone is safe. If not, you must let your hotel arrange a pickup service for you. Even if you have to pay a bit more, you won’t regret it.
Be careful with what you drink
Make sure you keep your drinks close by. Don’t talk to a stranger without looking at your drinks. You don’t want someone to put something in it. You will lose focus and be potentially harassed.
Don’t bring valuables
Apart from your phone, don’t bring anything else with you. Leave your room keys at the hotel concierge. Use online payments instead of bringing cash or cards. Keep your jewelry to a minimum. You can look attractive without wearing expensive items.
Be friendly, but set limits
There’s nothing wrong in being friendly with the locals. If someone wants to speak with you, try to talk to the other person. It doesn’t mean you have to share everything. You also can’t expect it will go well. Just because you saw how things went well in the movies doesn’t mean the same happens in real life. You can make friends, but know where to put boundaries.
With these tips, you won’t worry about your safety anymore. You can go to party destinations and survive. If you did something wrong, learn from it. You will be better next time. You can also avoid doing things that may harm you or the people you go with. Make sure you don’t get involved in a fight, especially if you’re in another country.
