Get Free V.I.P Treatment in Clubs, Bars, Restaurants easy

Hey guys! In this post I'm gonna show you how to get VIP treatment infires nightclubs an restaurants or start with not cops on in Halong party cruise . Now especially, I believe that if you really want to get that the AP treatment, you have to build connections with people warp endorsed by some people who run those places. For example you know barklow, owners, managers. But also you know thestock like waiters, waitresses ,bartenders and security guards.

So before delving deeper into this, I'm going to share with you my personal story.
A couple years ago I went to my like a and order to learn Spanish. Now is to the doing it in traditional
way. I decided to learn Spanish solely for interactions with local people. So basically when I through to my like I said to myself orogeny from now on it's on the Spanish. My Spanish is was very limited, I decided I'm going is on Spanish. I'm gonna learn French interactions with local people in
nightclubs, on beaches. I on the street basically walking around talking to people.

So from time to time, I'll go to this place called Los Alamos. I was on a switch at amazing beach bars
and basically do why did it was you know. I would Golder around nine or 10 p.m. when all the beach bars were already open. What to do or not too many people. Because you know Spanish people path to go to parties very late. Basically I would use it to my advantage out woke up two security guards and I would build connection with them. So just woke up to a bunch of you know but you've also said. I would say something like "hey guys what's up" and I would you start in Spanish in my
broken Spanish at that time "hey guys what's up". It was going on tonight is there any party going on unknown. Speak about you know the party don't tell me couple things and at some point to ask me "dude, where are you from". Because they could hear that I had different accent that I was making mistakes. I tried by the way sorry for the South the background well then you know the ask you some questions until the run from out and back.

1. Secret Pockets and Bras are the answer!

Whenever you are travelling make the most of secret pockets. If you don’t have any, make them yourself or ask somebody for help. It is easier than it sounds, believe me. I suggest using very thin material and sew your pockets inside your pants, close to your crotch. There is a very small probability that robbers would search that area.

Secret pockets are amazing as they enable you to hide most of your cash & documents and leave only the necessary amount in your regular pockets. The idea behind it is that if somebody is trying to rob or simply pickpocket you, he is unlikely to get to the core of your cash.

Whenever you find yourself in a position where you need more money, simply go to the toilet and take it out from your secret pockets. In this way nobody will even suspect that you have them. If you are a woman you can also hide the money inside your bra, in the padding.

I’ve visited many places perceived to be quite dangerous, and trust me, when you are strolling along crowded streets full of pickpockets this approach gives you a priceless peace of mind. There is no better feeling than the awareness that nobody will get to your documents and cash. It makes it easier to focus on enjoying your trip. If you are still hesitating I will show you what happens when things go wrong.


2. Always have some change in your pockets

Even if you use secret pockets always keep some change in your normal pockets. The reason is that if somebody is trying to rob you and you have absolutely nothing, they may become aggressive. I know situations where people got punched by a frustrated robber who couldn’t find any money.
alway have change.

alway have change

 It is wise to have the equivalent of $10 or $15 in your regular pocket. If somebody is trying to rob you, you can take all that change and throw it on the ground. There is a big possibility that whoever is bothering you will stop and try to grab everything from the ground. This is your chance to run away (or punch them – I don’t officially endorse it though). If you don’t have any change the robbers are more likely to run after you (convinced that you are hiding something) or as I mentioned before, assault you physically. You don’t want to get into that situation.

3. Protect your Camera on the Beach with this Great Trick

The below technique works well when you want to let your creative spirit flow, but unfortunately the beach you chose is not the safest place in the world.

 Protect your camera
Protect your camera
Once you are done with pictures & videos, put your camera in the bag or simply wrap a towel around it and jog for a few minutes. While you are jogging look back from time to time to make sure that nobody is following you. In this way you will ensure that once you reach your new spot nobody will know that you have the camera on you. I used this technique in Rio de Janeiro and it worked perfectly well. Protect your camera.
 You may think: “nobody will steal from me”. Well, this may be true. However, if your equipment is expensive and beaches you plan to visit are perceived to be a bit more dangerous (e.g. Rio or Barcelona), then I encourage you to test my approach.
Unfortunately, I still see many situations around the world where people flash photos and make videos on the beach only to put the camera in the bag and lie down. At that point every thief on the beach knows that the camera is securely packed in that nice green bag resting next to the deckchair. It becomes an easy target for an expert and there are many of them.
I will never forget when I was in Copacabana and saw 2 guys flashing their iPhones and fancy cameras in front of everybody. On the top of that they had T-shirts with Norwegian flag. All of this was like a gigantic neon sign saying: “Rob me please. I came from a rich country and brought some fancy things with me. Don’t worry, I will not fight for them”.
I really hope that these guys avoided the trouble. Nevertheless, showing your wealth is the last thing you want to do in certain places.

4. Scan your documents & don’t carry originals

Scan your passport, insurance and other important documents and make sure that you always have the copies with you. When you travel you can’t really predict when you will need your documents. On the other hand, the last thing you want to do is to carry the original copies wherever you go. The reason is that if you lose them you will have an insurmountable amount of stress to deal with. If it happened to you or you know somebody who experienced it you know what I mean. It is a predicament that can turn your trip into a disaster and you should do your best to avoid it. Learn from the mistakes of other people and scan your documents. It is better to be prepared than to be sorry. Also, if for some reason you need your real documents you can always keep them in your secret pockets.

5. Upload scans of your documents to CLOUD

Thanks to this approach you will be able to retrieve your documents from the internet no matter what happens. It’s an additional safety layer and you should definitely use it! Best thing to protect your documents

6. Always walk with the sense of direction & confidence

Walk in a confident way with a sense of direction and people will not try to stop you. They will simply assume that you know what you are doing and you are heading towards a specific destination. Therefore, you will not appear to be an easy victim.
I will share with you a great trick that will help you in potentially dangerous situations. When you are walking through any rough area on your own or when it is dark imagine that you need to go from point A to point B and you are already late. This will propel you to walk faster and it will appear that you know exactly where you want to go. In addition, when you are walking on the street and can sense some danger imagine that your friend is waiting for you and you can already see him. You should smile, wave to your imaginary friend and start walking faster. If you are travelling with a basic mobile phone you may even pretend that you are calling him. In this case confidently say: “Hey, what’s up, I can see you guys!” (Of course, you don’t want to do it with a fancy iPhone).
If you take these steps whoever intended to rob/harass you will think at least twice before doing so. Why would they approach you if somebody is already waiting for you? After all, your friends could potentially join you or call the police straight away. Whoever planned to harass you will probably figure out that the potential trouble is not worth the potential gain. I used this technique when I got lost in a dangerous part of Rio at night and it served me well.
