Why travel Abroad?

Would you love to travel, now even though Covid- 19 has taken its toll on us lately? When considering where you would like to go, and what you would like to see, why not dial it back a bit and stay in the good old USA?

I have had many travel destinations; many outside the US and inside the US. Although it is fun to dream and plan an overseas adventure, it would be fantastic to see the sites in the US. There are so many exciting things to do, and you do not have to spend a fortune, or go far, (unless you want to.)

 You can travel now as many bans have been lifted. Many health experts agree that as long as you are diligent to take the needed precautions, and visit relatively uncrowded areas, it is a fairly low risk. Do keep in mind that city or state travel restrictions will vary widely and change frequently. Keeping up with the latest rules can be a challenge.   For instance, Airport travelers arriving to New York from other U.S. states that are on New York’s quarantine list are required to fill out detailed contact forms upon landing, with fines for noncompliance. New Mexico requires visitors to quarantine for two weeks, as does Hawaii, where violators of the order incur a $5,000 fine. The state’s “Pre-Travel Testing Program,” which lets travelers skip the quarantine if they show proof of a recent negative Covid-19 test, has been delayed to October 1, at the earliest.

So, first things first, check all of the parameters for where you want to travel to. Then make a plan and execute it. Look for your best least crowded options in hotels, staying in a small B&B or a smaller setting for instance, somewhere that does not give you a lot of exposure. Drive yourself or rent a car, rather that looking to public modes of transportation. Instead of looking at places where there will be large crowds, for instance like Theme Parks, or where lots of people may congregate. Perhaps head to a mountain resort, or a hiking trail, or a National Park.

To be sure there are so many amazing places to see in the US! So, go and enjoy the amazing wonders here, and plan that overseas trip at a later date!
