Let’s be frank. Aren’t you a bit uneasy about planning that vacation to Europe this summer? You may even be asking if, what with everything going on in the world these days, shouldn’t we just stay home and hide under a blanket until it’s all over?
Two words –heck no!
Those dramatic “you’re far more likely to be struck by lightning than (insert dire event here)” sayings have been around a long time, and while some may find them comforting – or alarming – they do illustrate an important point. Recent shocking events in the UK and elsewhere aside, your chances of being injured in an act of terrorism are extremely remote. That’s not to say you should jump on that plane, or board that ship, without doing a little leg work, but if you let fear of the unknown keep you home this summer, you may miss out on the trip of a lifetime.
When planning your next big adventure, here are a few things to keep in mind.
