“My favorite thing is to go where I have never been.”
– Diane Arbus, American photographer (1923 - 1971)
“Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art."
– Freya Stark (1893 - 1993), British explorer and travel writer
It's sunshiny day! The European Union representatives met today and agreed to recommend that the 27 member states allow vaccinated Americans to travel there for tourist reasons.
The ultimate control of their borders remains with each of the member states, some of which have already opened to vaccinated Americans. Still, the EU recommendation is a big step toward getting the rest of the countries open, and tourist dollars flowing again.
Switzerland has announced that they will open to vaccinated travelers, including Americans, beginning June 28.
“I have traveled widely in my lifetime, having been struck by the virus at an early age and having, as yet, developed no antibodies to harden my resistance or immunity.”
– Caskie Stinnett, Grand and Private Pleasures, 1977
