By the time you read this article I should be in Paris.
One night in Bordeaux, 7 night Bordeaux River cruise, 4 nights in Paris, 3 nights in Amsterdam, 7 nights on the Rhine River and 6 nights in Switzerland. Yippee!
Our trip was planned in 2018 for travel in 2020. Then Covid happened. We moved the trips off to 2021 and then again to 2022. We’re holding our breath that we get there safely with no problems with Covid or now of course this terrible war.
If Covid taught me one thing, it’s to go with the flow. I can’t control what the future holds. I can prepare by buying travel insurance and medical transport assist insurance.
Here is my list of “Ten Things to Know Before You Go”.
1. Register with your airline and cruise line and download their APP. Follow their guidelines on travel requirements to the country you are arriving in. The airlines don’t require Covid testing, the countries you are arriving in do. If you do not follow the guidelines exactly, you will be denied boarding.
2. If Covid testing is required, make a reservation 7 to 10 days in advance of your test. Walgreens or CVS offers this service
