Do i need to carry my passport on me when sightseeing?
I doubt you'll be asked for ID when having a glass of wine in Europe and if you are, anything that identifies your age should be fine.
It's important to carry your identification with you while you are traveling.
I used to photocopy my passport so that I had a paper copy with me all the time, these days I find that taking photos of all my ID and important travel documents suffices, because it's very easy to print them. But I would never take both my passport AND back-up copy with me at the same time!
2) Passport secure in the hotel SAFE. Not just locked in your room.
3) Drinking shouldn't be a problem. Europe has a much more relaxed drinking culture.
4)RELAX and enjoy yourself. Not everyone is out lurking and trying to rob you. Just use common sense like you would at home. If the neighborhood looks skeevey....leave.
IN CASE you get accosted/threatened for your Euros.....keep a wad in a pocket. The bulk in your neck wallet.....toss the wad (or coins...you'll have lots of coins) on the ground...when they dive for the cash do a Chuck Norris style....well no..RUN away.
Keep a copy somewhere - your hotel room, suitcase, a scanned copy on a USB drive, whatever.
And remember, if your passport gets stolen, report it to the first police station you find and get written documentation of the report. Then call the nearest embassy/consulate. (Hopefully this will never happen to you.)
