Valuables - carrying around vs. keeping in luggage

Jump to last reply

So I'm going on a Contiki tour next month and I'm bringing my iPad to keep in contact with people at home, we're staying in budget places such as campgrounds and hostels. I was just wondering whether I'm better off keeping my iPad with me at all times in my backpack (worried about thieves) or leaving it in my luggage in my room (with a luggage lock on my suitcase). I'd feel more comfortable carrying it with me at all times but many people online warn of people taking bags. I've never been out of Canada so I'm a bit clueless of what people are like in Europe.
I'll be in London, Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, Munich and Amsterdam.
