This post is halfway related to How does one recover from a (personal) disaster while abroad, travel-wise?
Imagine that you lose everything that you got (money, cell-phone, IDs) while abroad. I know I should have two forms of ID, not carry all the money in one pocket and stuff like that. But even then, stuff could happen. I'm into outdoor sports and sometimes extreme cases are not avoidable. Anyway. The only option I can think of is going to a consulate (I'm aware that they don't care much for people abroad in such conditions) and asking for some additional ID, then trying to find free WIFI and contacting someone back home to send me money through Western Union.
What are the other backup plans? I wish I could obtain money just with a password from an ATM or Western Union. Or even better, I wish I could deposit an envelope with some form of ID and pocket money and get it through expedited delivery from UPS at a business location.
