Viajar en tiempos de incertidumbre

En la mañana del día en la que sucedieron los últimos ataques terroristas, me encontraba entrando al aeropuerto de Missoula, Montana, para comenzar mi viaje de regreso a Pennsylvania luego de una larga estadía con la familia y con el equipo de Tripsite. Eran las 5.15 am cuando arribé a mi puerta de embarque, y fue cuando me di cuenta de las noticias que pasaban en cada pantalla de televisión, otro ataque terrorista había ocurrido.
El sonido estaba bajo, por lo que me llevo un tiempo leer los subtítulos que explicaban la situación, en un principio, pensé que era el aeropuerto de chicago el que había sido atacado, pero luego me di cuenta que era el de Bruselas.
Podría haber estado en chicago, tristemente este es el mundo en el que vivimos, esta es mi realidad y seguramente también sea la tuya.
Debido a que yo trabajo en viajes, este tipo de eventos me afectan profundamente, no solo en lo profesional, sino también en lo personal. No se puede dejar de reconocer que se siente miedo.
Entonces cuales fueron mis pensamientos al respecto y porque decido seguir viajando, sin importar el miedo o la incertidumbre?

Porque es lo que me define, esto es quien soy yo!

    At time like this, it is important to be reminded living our lives without fears is only solution to all terrorist attacks! Thanks Mary for sharing your personal experience.

      Hi Jonathan! I am so glad you enjoyed the post. We have added a link to an article in the NY Times which we have found is very informative.

Dear friends, My name is Hennie Van den Hengel and I am the founder of Tripsite and now share company ownership with my son and two daughters. We are originally from Holland, but when the children were young, my husband and I moved the family to the US to begin an agricultural business. We made rural Pennsylvania our home. It was wonderful to do what I loved, and when we decided to sell that business, I focused on another love- cycling. Read More

Porto to Santiago: A Surprise Outcome

No matter how many bike trips I take, there’s always a moment when the thrill of it all hits home. My brother and I are pretty experienced riders, but I still felt a tingle on a bright August morning when Sérgio, who set us up on our bikes, sent us on our way with a hearty, “See you next Wednesday!” “Next Wednesday,” I thought to myself, was six days and 290 kilometers (181 miles) from the beautiful Duoro River in Porto, Portugal, where Sérgio gave us our cheery farewell.
