Traveling is perhaps the single best way for you to learn about the world that you live in and the vast numbers of different cultures and peoples that populate our planet. At the same time, traveling can be an extremely hectic experience. There are lots of moving parts that need to be taken into account, and when you are moving around with an enormous amount of stuff that you need to keep carrying then chances are that something or the other might get lost and if that something is your phone then you are going to be in a pretty bad situation if you are in a foreign country especially if you don’t speak the language that is native to that particular region.
This is why you should keep your phone location on at all times while you are trying. The find my apple product feature is something that can come in handy if your location was on. Misplacing your phone is quite common and is not a big deal if you have this feature activated. No matter where you are or what you were doing when you misplaced your phone, you would be able to track it and in case someone picked it up and turned it off so that it wouldn’t be traced, you would at the very least know the last known location which can give you a good starting place.
Traveling means that you are going to go to lots of different places even if you are staying in the same city for a few days, and since all of these places would be new losing your phone would be quite anxiety inducing because you wouldn’t be able to navigate well enough to retrace your steps.
