What you might have had a more difficult time figuring out is what exactly that means for travel to Europe. First, the E.U.’s recommendation is just that, […]

We’re of the opinion that any vacation is a good vacation, whether it’s in your own backyard or to the ends of the earth. It’s been such a joy to see travel return this year after a 2020 spent largely at home. With the travel industry basically rebooting, there have been fits and starts this […]

Plan years’ worth of trips ahead to beat the rush

August 9, 2021

Each border opening reconnects us to a part of the world that felt lost. There are so many opportunities to visit countries we’ve always dreamed of seeing, and in some cases to avoid the crowds that are usually flocking to must-see spots. But there is still a long list of places we still can’t visit, […]

What travel is like in 2021

July 6, 2021

Did you know that even if you’re traveling to a European country that doesn’t require fully vaccinated travelers to take a COVID test, if you’re flying through the U.K. en route you do need a test, even if you’re not leaving the airport? It’s an illustration of how challenging and complicated travel is in 2021, […]

All-American adventures in celebration of the 4th of July

June 28, 2021

In many ways, this Fourth of July weekend will be the nation’s post-pandemic coming-out party. While COVID-19 isn’t yet defeated, close to half the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, with another significant percentage partially vaccinated. We’re thrilled that so many destinations closed off to us for more than a year are reopening, but the last […]

Your graduate deserves the Gift of Travel

May 17, 2021

This year’s graduating students have gone through challenges generations of students before them didn’t have to deal with. It’s not just getting the grades, passing the tests and writing the papers. It’s navigating the ins and outs of remote learning, trying to learn in-person safely and negotiating a hybrid version of both. It’s been tough, […]
