Traveling is an enriching experience that can broaden your horizons and expose you to new cultures and ways of life. As you travel you will build your own passionate global community of adventurers.

Is it safe to travel in 2023? Post-covid?

It is very safe to travel in 2023. We went to Taiwan and Thailand this year and had a great time. We were healthy and safe everywhere we went. I think the correct mindset is that you will be safe as long as you make safe choices. Even when you stay home you always have risks you accept.

In terms of COVID, It’s important to stay up to date on the latest travel advisories and restrictions from local communities and national authorities, travel industry as well as from international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO). Stay informed and make informed decisions based on the latest information available to you.

How do you make the best of a vacation?

Plan ahead:

Research the destination ahead of time and create full list with an itinerary of things you want to do and see.

While it’s important to see and do as much as possible, it’s also important to take time to relax and recharge.

Connect with people:

One of the best ways to experience a new place is to connect with the the community of locals and support local communities that celebrate inclusivity and community. Whether it’s striking up a conversation with a bartender or chatting with a shop owner, locals can offer insights expert practical advice, and recommendations that you won’t find in a guidebook content online.

Capture memories:

Finally, make sure to capture memories of your trip. Take photos, keep a journal, or create a scrapbook to help you remember the highlights of your vacation for years to come.
