With everything in the world going on and not going on, keeping up with the destinations open to travel is ever changing. I heard the other day that Romania and Poland would accept the two vaccine doses as proof and then read, but they could also still require a negative Covid test. Russia just opened up and countries like Mexico and Costa Rica have been open all along, for the most part. One of the places and for those wanting to go to the Caribbean, is Puerto Rico and as part of the US, you do not need a negative Covid test when you return the mainland, because, it is part of the US. Think about that, but also remember that coming in the US from another destination (not part of the US), US citizen or not, you will have to test negative or have to quarantine.
As the vaccines roll out and I am now the recipient of my two, I am excited to get out there and travel again, but the rules, for the most part, have not changed around the world. Americans, in general are not allowed to travel to most places, unless deemed essential or other requirements and most places still have all the barriers including our neighbor to the north, which has caused issues for cruise lines going to Alaska and so many have already cancelled their voyages. I know this is all for the good in the long run, but it seems to me, there has to be a balance and the handling of this pandemic on the surface seems to be getting better. I want everyone to be safe and I will wear a mask as the protocol requires in most places, even though some states never had a mask mandate, but when will the borders truly start opening up so we can once again be wandering the world again? I am here to help and make more sense of it all as this situation ever evolves.
