Back up the data on your device before traveling

Many applications allow you to set up regular automated backups of your data, which is great for day-to-day data preservation. But when you’re traveling — particularly abroad — this could be costly or ineffective due to connectivity or restrictions on your plan. To ensure you have a reliable account of your data before you go away, perform a manual backup which, should the worst happen, you can recover on your return. That way all you will have lost is whatever you’ve accumulated or changed whilst on your trip.
