Who knows, maybe I can inspire one or the other of you and soon you go yourself into the big wide world. For this reason, I here gradually (hopefully) create a collection of helpful tips. After all, you don't have to make bad experiences necessarily yourself to learn from it.
To avoid too much information I dispense with standard (keep valuables close to your body, "peel it, cook it or forget it" etc.) and country-specific advices.
