Welcome to spring in full bloom and the celebration of Easter, Passover and Ramadan. This spring is hopefully a return to some sense of normalcy for everyone in many industries including mine, travel. I see the signs where there are peaks of light emerging. Clients and potential new clients are reaching out to me for scheduling and re-scheduling their travels, looking at the latest destinations to open and I am simply seeing the signs that maybe, just maybe, we have turned a corner, and yet, I know, we still have a ways to go.
Safety is paramount in any case, even as the guidelines continually evolve. The CDC has now stated that those with the two-shot vaccine (Moderna and Pfizer) or the one shot vaccine (Johnson & Johnson), plus the two weeks post shot window, will be able to depart from domestic airports without having a negative Covid test result and as I understand it, even leaving for international destinations, as well. American announced that they will start flying to Milan and Rome as a test for quarantine free flights in May, which personally excites me. I know that other airlines had test flights to Italy, but only for those designated as essential.
It is a start, but it will still take the countries of the world to figure out their own response to this and whether those vaccinated with proof will be able to arrive within their borders, having a vaccine passport or other proof, so it is still no free sailing. The need to maintain the current requirements, be it a mask or distancing will be here for a while, even as places re-open, requirements or not. It should be a common theme as we move forward, that we remain safe, for ourselves and more importantly others, even as we are excited to expand beyond our comfort zone. I will do my part in this regard and be there for my clients, colleagues, friends, staying on top of the safety protocols and changes as they evolve. When you are ready, the Wandering Puffin will be there to assist on your next travel adventure!!!
