A while back, I wrote this post, which detailed why your hotel safe might not be as safe as you’d like to think. It included YouTube videos of how to easily open a variety of locked hotel safes, as well as some viable alternatives to hotel safes. Full disclosure: it was totally a “do as I say, not as I do” post, because although I brought my laptop with me during all of my travel, I was still putting it in the hotel safe (or worse, in the bottom of my suitcase, under the clothes, because nobody would EVER look there, right? #rolleyes). I know, I know…bad Sharon! So I decided to put my money where my mouth was and bought a PacSafe brand Travelsafe 12L GII portable safe a while back. Here’s my review of it.
