The European Union has announced today (5/19/21) that they have agreed to allow quarantine-free travel for vaccinated tourists and visitors from countries considered safe. Travelers who have received vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson will not have to quarantine before or after arriving in Europe. The approval of this proposal will be finalized this week and plans on how this will be rolled out country-by-country are expected to follow. (You can read the full article here.)
In this week’s episode, Allan discusses vaccinations and activity passports that allow people to travel and do other things such as attend concerts, eat indoors at restaurants, or go to museums. It is exciting to think that we could be back to enjoying our normal activities without social distancing and masks in the very near future.
Last week, Allan Wright, Taste Vacations’ owner and president, had the pleasure of discussing the current and future state of travel with Mindi Abair, two-time Grammy nominee, saxophonist, singer, and fellow travel lover, and her husband, Eric Guerra, a wine industry veteran. Mindi and Eric own Reserve Tastings, a Wine + Music private wine membership that focuses on small-lot, luxury wines that are not available to the public.
