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.

We recently caught up with Tripsite Traveler, Liz Ling, who had a blast on our 8 Day Tulip Tour aboard the Quo Vadis. Along the way, she snapped some lovely photos from the bike path. Heres what Liz had to say about her trip: Adventure and being active is what we love, especially when traveling. I work in a busy trauma hospital as an anesthesiologist, so vacation time is precious and trips are booked carefully. Read More


Five New Bike Tours That Should Be On Your Radar

Jehiel • Apr 30, 2019

Don't get us wrong, we could bike through tulip fields and sample creamy Dutch cheese with no complaints (obviously), but sometimes we crave something a bit different. Picture this: Exploring the Galapagos by bike & boat and getting to see the infamous Blue-Footed Booby or learning about World World II from the perspective of the Dutch pedalling by battlefields and bunkers. Maybe you don't have to say goodbye to tulips and cheese after all! We aren't trying to reinvent the wheel. Read More


Cycling Umbria: A Gastronomy Bike Tour

Kathryn Grunder • Feb 6, 2019 • 3

After the bustle of Rome, Umbria was a romantic movie set. Lesley and I were charmed to see children playing in Spello’s piazza fountain, their mothers sitting nearby chatting, and old men soaking up the sun. We went through an impressive stone archway and began our 2 km walk uphill to our lodgings. Jasmine framed the doorways and covered the ancient stone walls, filling the air around us with its scent.
