There is nothing more frustrating then going through the tedious steps necessary when someone steals your payment information. Unfortunately, in the world we live in today this is an increasing issue. With technology comes both benefits and downfalls.
RFID stands for radio frequency identification. This is not a break through in the field of technology, as this has been around for quite some time. However, there have been identified areas within our day to day activities that this technology has benefited. A few of these benefits include efficient border crossings for international travelers, collecting toll fares, and increasing security access.
At this point, you’re probably thinking, “Ok Olive, but what does this have to do with me?” Well, I’m glad you asked! RFID chips are now located within all of our U.S. passports if issued later than the mid-2000s, within some “touch and go” type credit cards and even “enhanced” driver’s licenses offered/required in certain states. These RFID chips are always sending out signals for an electronic reader to capture.
Thus, we have arrived to the downfall portion. Digital thieves now have the ability to get within a couple feet of your purse or wallet and receive your private information using an electronic reader. The last thing that any of us needs is to have our overdue vacation interrupted or remembered for having our payment/identity information stolen.

The wind gusts by, cool and crisp, autumn is in the air. All around are shades of red, orange, and yellow. The smell of pumpkin and cinnamon sugar drafts by as the friendly chatter is periodically interrupted by rustling leaves. It is an early morning up on the bluff. This is no ordinary bluff. This bluff and I go as far back as my early childhood memories. From pumpkin picking, caramel apples, tractor rides, and corn mazes - the fall harvest festival has begun.
After all the time, effort, and excitement that goes into planning a vacation, what could be worse than getting sick? Yes, yes, I know, there are worse things that could happen, such as natural disasters, but I am referring to a more personalized experience that effects just you or your travel companions.
