Jaga, a lot of countries are risky places for travel. but a lot of seemingly 'safe' countries can also present dangerous situations - just have a look at all those sharp knives in your kitchen! Very ugly if you fall on one of those.
It depends on what type of traveller you are. I would caution a novice traveller about going to central west Africa, but it's up to each person to assess their ability and act accordingly.
Staying safe is an attitude: know the risks and take appropriate precautions to make sure you keep travelling, safely. about 6 years ago
