Europe has re-opened to travelers…except Americans. It seems that the USA’s quarantine skills just aren’t up to snuff. And, judging from the new coronavirus cases sweeping our country, we have a lot of room for improvement. If you want to flatten our curve so we can head back to Europe, the recipe is simple: Self-isolate at home as much as possible. If you’re out in public, socially distance. And be sure to wear a mask.
In the meantime, it seems that we may be stuck at home for a while longer. If you’re like me, more than 100 days of staying close to home is wearing thin (even though it’s just as important as ever). Sometime during the haze of quarantine, I started brainstorming ways that travelers can bring a little bit of Europe into our daily lives during this crisis. This video offers a few suggestions.
