Myth 3: Pick-pocketers run rampant
Most destinations where tourism's big are safer than you think. Is there a chance you'll get pick-pocketed on Las Ramblas in Barcelona, or riding the Paris Metro? Of course, but it could also happen in a place like Wilmington, NC, and that's where Dawson's Creek was filmed (mad safe). There are, however, some general rules to follow to ensure your wallet stays where it belongs: DON'T keep it in your back pocket when you're in a crowd, DON'T whip out a map on the street, revealing yourself to be a clueless tourist, and DO wear a wolf t-shirt -- they're badass and no one messes with dudes in wolf shirts. It's a fact.
