As I talk to friends and followers around the world who are outside of the USA, the messages are often very different.
Those conversations, taken collectively, caused me to wonder how I could help people understand one another better. Because there seemed to be a disconnect. And the answer came during a conversation where it was suggested that I share what I’m being told to help facilitate a global perspective on travel - during COVID - for greater understanding and respect amongst all of us who like to travel, and those who live in places where travelers frequent.
Because I received so many responses to my Q posted here
on Instagram, I couldn’t fit them all in this issue and I’ve chosen to publish a bonus post
with the balance of the responses I received. All have been shared with permission, and as screenshots so you know I’m not changing anyone’s words
. Let’s jump in.
