Staying safe whilst drinking
We all love a good drinking holiday, especially in student heavy cities such as Austin, Salamanca and Sydney. Of course, any big night out comes with certain risk factors: the later it gets, the more chaotic things can be. Stay as a group and try not to become toointoxicated. Have a pre-made/pre-agreed time and method for getting home. I’ve always found that booking a taxi in advance is a good idea. Walking around in the day time so you have a well-lit and sober mental picture of where everything can also be very helpful. Whether you’re home or abroad, always keep an eye on your drinks and who is near them. If things start to get too rowdy, you can always leave and find another bar. Its all about being sensible and doing small mental risk assessments as situations change.
