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.

My first experience on an electric bike

By: HennieThere is power in the battery! Are you like me and too stubborn (or proud) to resort to an electric bike? There is nothing wrong with trying to stay on a regular hybrid touring bike or road bike as long as you can and as long as you are having fun! But when it becomes just a bit too difficult, or you really want to experience the beauty of a tour that is rated beyond your ability, it is time to think about your options. Read More


Tripsite Traveler: Golden City of Prague

Despite being on a waitlist for a top deck cabin, we asked and received one upon boarding the boat. My friend Derek flew in from Vegas to join me on this trip. 910 was our room number and it had a nice sliding door/window to the outside. Read More

A Bike & Boat Tour in Poland’s Lake District: the Young, the Old, and the New

October 3, 2016

By: MaryAbout a year ago, we had a request come in for a bike and boat tour in Poland. Somebody had talked with somebody who had heard that there was such a tour. We searched... and we found it. Not a tour on the Baltic Sea as you would expect, but an obscure tour, undiscovered by most, in the Masurian Lake District. Over 15% of the area is covered by water and another 30% by forest. There are 2000 lakes, many interconnected, so a perfect place for a bike and boat tour and our first on lakes. Read More
