Big cities like Barcelona and Rome can be amazing. However, there can also tend to be a big problem with petty theft in some of these great cities. I personally had my phone stolen out of my pocket while in Barcelona, and many of my friends have had things stolen from them as well. One way to help protect yourself against theft is to use a secure, theft-proof backpack. The Bobby Anti Theft Backpack by XD design is probably the most popular example I have come across. Here are some of its advantages and disadvantages:
It is ugly that there is a demand for taking anti theft measures. However, we unfortunately do not live in a perfect world, so the Bobby Anti Theft Backpack is a good option. After the success of their original bag, XD Design has also introduced a variety of other bag options to combat theft. You should still exercise caution, but the bag gives you the opportunity to rest a little easier. While I am using TEFL to travel I usually use mine at least five days a week.
