In 2018, I visited China and in 2019, I went a little crazy and visited England (twice), France (twice), Germany, Switzerland, Morocco, and Spain. In 2020, I wanted to see India and Nepal but the global covid pandemic killed that plan and in the end, it wasn’t even in the card for 2021. At one point in time, I even had airfare booked to fly from Chicago to Delhi for Oct 13, 2021.
Looking at vaccination rates and which countries allow American visitors, the only real option is Europe. South America and Asia are out of realm of possibility for 2022. I lost a lot of money when I had to cancel the India trip (both insurance plans had a clause where they don’t cover global pandemics). This time around, I am trying to be cautious about when I book stuff. I don’t want to lose everything if a new virus variant hits. I am optimistic, though.
The plan is to fly into Rome, spend some time there, take the high-speed train to Venice, and then fly home from Venice.
Have a suggestion for stuff to do or things to see while there? Feel free to drop a comment, below.
