In the wise words of Bill Hill who developed the concept of Perpetual Traveller, the most dangerous place in the world is where you are right now! Most Perpetual Travellers explore and travel to new countries relentlessly around our planet, however there are risks associated to this, hence Perpetual Traveller Overseas will now develop a Weekly Report to warn you about travel risks.

Image
Upon scheduling your next business or pleasure orientated travel, it would be wise to avoid if possible the below-mentioned cities that form this article. The list below in essence, features the world’s most dangerous places on the basis of murder incidents per capita.

Here is a Bullet Point Summary of the results in 2016:
My former home Caracas, Venezuela has now risen to Numero Uno spot with 119.87 murders per 100,000.The lively city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras which occupied the top position in 2015 comes second with 111.03 murders per 100,000 in 2016.

Greetings from Bahrain!

Here I am working on the Bahrain Cruise Strategy, focusing on how to empower greater engagement between Cruise visitors and the hospitable culture the people on the island, whereby nearly 60% of the location population is actually from Bahrain! Pearl diving, visits to Arabian Horse ranches and being welcomed into a locals home to learn an authentic cooking style are just some of the new highlights on my agenda. Local hospitality is also reflected in the new brand identity ‘Ours. Yours. Bahrain’ which embraces the country’s biggest asset, its people – their warmth and welcoming attitude!

As you will see below, last week was extremely busy on the security agenda, in part thanks to Mr. Trump!


Here below is one of the most comprehensive updated worldwide reports on Security for all Perpetual Traveller's out there!
