Take a minimum of valuable items with you when you travel. The more items you have with you, the chance will be higher that you will leave one behind, or an item gets stolen.
IF you are in a foreign city, make sure that you are not dealing with people posing as police or other officials. Show officials your passport, but do not give it to them. If you are asked to travel to any offices, insist on walking. Do not get rides with strangers.
When traveling by air, do not count on the airline to provide for your needs, even on a long flight. Pack your headphones, a blanket and even a pillow if you feel like you will use them. You should also plan to bring a few airline approved snacks along in case the airline meals are a flop.
You will not save much space, plus, many of these items are overpriced. A different way to save space is to fold your clothes more efficiently. A packing plan could save you serious space in your luggage.

It is a good idea to apply for a visa months before you have to travel, as the processing times for visas can be quite long. Remember, without the appropriate visa you will be refused entry to some countries.
