Hello everyone and thank you for the helpful info you provide -- I have been reading lots of forum posts and have a few questions.
1. I am traveling from the US to London this fall, which will be my first overseas trip since 2005 (too long indeed!). I realize you shouldn't wear a money belt or pocket until after getting through security to provide access to passport, etc. Wearing it during the long-haul flight seems uncomfortable and I will have my travel purse with me to store credit cards, passport, etc.
Obviously, you need access to passport when going through immigration. So when & where do you put the money belt on? I will be using a car service to my hotel so no tube/taxi concerns. I hope to drop off bags at my hotel since I should be arriving several hours prior to check-in and want to go explore the city. Is the hotel a good place to reallocate cash, cc, passport -- like in the hotel lobby restroom?
I'm a planner and like to figure this stuff out in advance. Apologies for the long post and I appreciate your tips!
