Thumbs up

Trekking across Europe with my money belt tighly around my waist, within sight in the shower and in my pillowcase as I sleep. What about the beach?? What am I supposed to do with my goods when I am in the water?? Lockers safe enough??

well, leaving your money anywhere is risky, but if you have to leave it in a locker, I would try to use my own lock key or combo...There are water proof things you can get to wear around your neck, but they are kinda dorky...

Another option, ziplock back and swin trunks with zipper pockets, they are available, i think Bilabong sells makes a pair. Speeo are out anyway.
