One thing the GFB Speaker Team does a lot of is travel. Sometimes we live in hotel rooms while we are plane-hopping from campus to campus. One thing you want to do when you travel is make sure you safeguard your hotel room number. This might sound like an oh-so-obvious safety tip but you would be amazed how many times the well-meaning front desk agent at a hotel has announced my room number in a crowded lobby. My recommendation is if the front desk agent starts to tell you your room number in front of other guests, just nicely ask if they would just write the room number down on that fancy key card holder they give you.
Another thing you want to do is make sure, if you are traveling with someone else, that they do not announce your room number to a lobby full of people. This happened to me very recently and, while I don’t want to name any names, mom I’m looking at you. 🙂 The bottom line is strangers should not know where you sleep, even it is on a very temporary basis and you think everyone around you looks normal. Stay safe in your travels!
