Hi! I'm travelling with 3 others to Paris, June 22-26, during the Euro 2016 cup. We haven't planned to go to any games :( , we just happen to be traveling within the same time frame. As a first-time traveler, I am very nervous however for the crowds, security and the current state of affairs in France, especially in Paris, as I understand it's not the safest time to be traveling in France.
Can anyone offer advice on safety in crowds? I plan on carrying a moneybelt and a small cross-body bag OR Osprey daypack (haven't decided and would gladly take suggestions)
Also, if any attacks were to happen during the Euro 2016 cup, can anyone offer any emergency #'s or tips on how to handle things if something ensues.
I am looking for reassurance. I understand I can't avoid the inevitable and I am trying to keep the motto that RS follows, "you can't travel in fear."
Thank you so much from a first-time, nervous nonetheless excited traveler :)
