Like many of you, I am in shock over the response to the fast growing Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This especially a challenging and confusing time for all of us who like to travel. Many of us, adventure-seekers and travelers are torn between our passion for having for exploration and concerns about the health, safety and complexity of traveling during the coronavirus outbreak.
As part of my responsibility as blogger and influencer, I strive to provide guidance on wise travel and sharing tips to make your experiences worthwhile.
Now more than ever, it’s crucial to arm yourself with information. That includes healthy practices to minimize exposure, to potential pathogens, frequently look for updates on the CDC website, stay home if you feel sick and choose you’re activities wisely. This virus, like many illnesses are not only about our own body’s ability to protect us, but equally about the potential of passing it along to someone with a weak or compromised immune system.
We wouldn’t be the adventure lovers we are if we didn’t keep chasing experiences! Many travelers are holding off on travel all together for a few weeks to see what evolves. Others are seizing the money-saving opportunities provided by travel sites, airlines, cruises and other providers.
There are so many travel deals popping up everyday for 2020, even into 2021.
So many airlines, resorts and hotels, are responding to this situation with grace by offering flexibility to their cancellation policies. Those cruise lines that have not yet cancelled cruises are offering refunds, bonus incentives, and ramping up their screening processes.
If you decide to continue your trips this spring, ultimately it is your decision, but do so with guidance and expert advice provided by the the CDC and health care professionals.
I like many of you will keep moving , though a little more cautiously. Taking care to protect myself and and others through good hygiene practices and health practices.
Above all, I want to continue to inspire your adventures while offering responsible guidance.
Happy horizons and safe travels!
