Just as with luggage, don't overpack your wallet
Just as you might pare down to the bare minimum with your luggage, do the same with your wallet when traveling outside the country. Though the possibility of losing (or being relieved of) a wallet isn't necessarily greater abroad than in a densely populated city at home, it's far more complicated logistically to recover from such a loss.
