Every day an estimated 400 000 travelers get pickpocketed around the world. Money belts, neck pouches, wallets and purses are no match for seasoned thieves and the statistics would surprise even the most experienced of travelers. Even more travelers accidentally misplace their belongings, finding themselves stranded and scared in a foreign country without money, a passport or even a phone. There are more travel horror stories than one would care to imagine.

"Some of my stories" by Johanna, founder of the Clever Travel Companion
I would love to talk to you about safe traveling. Of course I could talk about Sweden, the north and winter sports or the Archipelago (just beautiful) or Stockholm, since Sweden is my birth country. I now live in the US but have been to countless other countries having been traveling for most of my life and I have both seen and experienced a multitude of safety issues on and off the beaten track.
I’m a “digital nomad” living the “location independent” lifestyle trying to make the most of what the world has to offer. Clever Travel Companion was born out of a sense of need for some kind of portable security that wasn't an annoying fanny pack or neck pouch. Thankfully it appears I wasn't the only person who felt that way!
You can read some of my stories more in depth here and I’m always interested in talking to you so, please, don’t be shy! Reach out and we can talk. We're always interested in partnerships.

The Clever Companion was founded late 2011 by Johanna Denize. Originally from Sweden, Johanna lives a digital Nomad kind of life with her husband and son. Having traveled more than 40 countries in her twenties, backpacking and otherwise going budget style, Johanna realised a better solution was needed to protect travelers from pickpockets and loss. Money belts, fanny packs and neck pouches simply wouldn't do, they were itchy, bulky and ugly and easy to misplace. Still traveling the world with her husband and one year old, Johanna invented the Clever Travel Companion's line of garments with secret pockets. No pickpocket – no matter how smart - will ever know where a travelers valuables are hidden.
