    The sweetness of strangers can be take part of big miss happening. I want to add some more things into this information, If you are traveling alone by bus don't sit on the back seats of the bus. Sometime we become careless for our luggage at the time of napping and people takes advantage and can steal your money or other luxury items from your bag.
