前阵子一姑娘在酒店差点被掳走,听过此新闻,小都不敢一人出去旅行了得亏有高人相助,小编学会了在旅行中如何自我保护~

 

Lying is almost always wrong but when you're traveling there are certain situations where it's a good idea to do so. As travelers, we're often prone to scams, harassment, and many other terrible experiences and a simple white lie is often all it takes to deflect this unwanted attention.

大多数情况下,说谎总是不对的,但是当你在旅途中遇到某些特殊情况时,说谎似乎是个不错的主意。作为旅客,我们有可能陷入骗局,遭到骚扰,以及经历其他糟糕的事情,这时一个无伤大雅的小谎通常能够躲避旁人非善意的关注。

 

Here are 5 lies you can tell to keep yourself safe on the road.

这里有五条谎言,可以在旅途中保护你的安全。

 

"No, This Isn't My First Time Here"

不,我来过这

This lie can be used in many situations and to avoid all kinds of unpleasant experiences.

这条谎言在很多情况下都会派上用场,帮你躲开各种不愉快的经历。

 

When you take a cab from the airport, your driver will likely ask you if it's your first time in the city. While it can be tempting to say yes and see if you can gather some insider knowledge, it's best to say that you've been here before. If the driver knows this is your first time in a city, he can take you on a long and winding journey and make you pay double. If the driver thinks you've visited before, he'll be much more likely to take you directly there.

当你从机场出来,乘出租车的时候,的哥很有可能会问你是不是第一次来这座城市。虽然此时说,司机可能会给你介绍一下当地的特色,但是你最好说以前来过。如果的哥知道你第一次来此城市,他很有可能开车绕远路,然后加倍收费;如果的哥认为你来过,他更有可能直接把你送到目的地。

 

This can also be used when meeting locals.

碰到当地人时这种方法同样奏效。

 

If someone finds out it's your first day in a city, they can use that to scam you. You're basically telling them that you don't know where anything is, you don't know how the city works, and you're an easy target.

如果有人发现这是你到此地的第一天,他们很有可能利用这一点欺骗你。你基本上就是在告诉他们你不知道哪是哪,你一点都不了解这里,你是一个冤大头。

 

"Yes, I have a Boyfriend"

嗯,我有男朋友

 

This is more for the solo female travelers out there, and can be used to deflect unwarranted attention. If a guy's annoying you at a bar and won't leave you alone, tell him you have a boyfriend. Take a photo of you and a male friend before you leave to travel and show them the photo of you together. Have a believable story and it'll be much easier to avoid the harassment.

这句话更适用于独自出门旅行的女士,可以用来转移一些不必要的关注。如果有人在酒吧骚扰你或纠缠你,告诉他你有男朋友,把出发旅行之前与男性朋友的合影拿给他看,配上一段可信的故事,这样更容易避免骚扰。

"Sorry, I Can't Remember the Name of My Hostel"

对不起,我不记得宾馆名字了

 

If you meet someone that seems to be taking a little too much interest in who you are, be sure to put your guard up and make sure you don't give too much away. If someone asks where you're staying, pretend that you can remember the name of your hostel and only describe it to them in vague terms. The last thing you want is someone knowing exactly where you're staying.

如果你遇到一个貌似对你很感兴趣的人,一定要警惕起来,确保不会泄露太多个人信息。如果有人问你住在哪里,假装你记得宾馆名称,然后用模棱两可的几个词描述给他们。绝对不要让别人知道你的确切住址。

 

"No Speak English"

不会说英语

 

In some parts of the world, the touts can be unbearable. In these situations, simply telling them you don't speak English and shrugging can be enough to deter them. If they try and find out which language you do speak then continue to shrug until they give up and walk away. It'll give you more space and a less stressful travel experience.

在世界的某些地方,小商小贩实在令人无法忍受。遇到这种情况,只需要耸耸肩,告诉他们你不会说英语,就可以赶走他们。如果他们试图了解你说哪种语言,你就继续耸肩,直到他们放弃、离开。这将会给你更多空间,让你的旅途少一些压力。

 

"I'm Traveling With a Friend"

我是和朋友一起出来旅行的

As frustrating as it is, solo travelers are targeted more than any other type of traveler. If you're in an uncomfortable situation or don't want to give too much of yourself away, say that you're traveling with a friend but spending the day apart to explore different parts of the city. It'll make you seem like less of an easy target, especially if you're female.

事实就是这么令人沮丧,与其他类型的游客相比,独自旅行的人的确更容易成为猎物。如果你遇到令人不安的情况,或者不想泄露太多个人信息,就谎称自己是和朋友一起出来旅行的,但是当天分开了,去了这个城市的不同角落。这会让你看起来不那么容易得手,尤其是女性。
