Learn about which countries are open for travel and what their requirements are

Dianne Newcomer

We have paused long enough. Now you are thinking it is time to play, right?

Well, hold your horses, folks. The light has not turned green just yet for some places in our world. As a travel agent at Monroe Travel Service, I certainly understand the pressure  to gun it and go -especially after last week’s big news that the European Union is  welcoming fully vaccinated tourists from outside their 27 nation block. 

I truly am excited there is an  eagerness to “go,” but, from our scouting reports, it is extremely important to not let enthusiasm cloud our judgement.  Yes, countries are finally opening up, but we must be realistic in our expectations.  Travelers looking for an early summer escape need to be aware the yellow caution light is still blinking in many places in Europe.
