We all do it when we travel, which is keeping the most valuable things like passport, money etc with us at all times and this is an excellent idea. The problem is we then put these valuable items in a backpack and carry it on our back.
A sensible thing to do with the backpack is to carry it in front of you, which makes it more difficult for thieves to steal from you. Plus, it's a good idea to tie the zippers together making it even more difficult for thieves.
We have all heard stories of people being taken advantage of after their drink has been spiked.
The best way to avoid this is to never leave your drink unattended and if you do need to leave your drink, ask a trusted friend to keep an eye on it.
Finally, never accept a drink from a stranger unless you watch the entire purchase and drink preparation process.
