A Night at the Midway Drive-In

The first drive-in theater opened in Las Cruxes, New Mexico, in 1915. Reaching the peak in the 1960s, drive-in theaters saw a big decline as technological advances to home entertainment and multiplexes presented other options. Suddenly, social distancing brought drive-ins back to the forefront.

A Travel Nightmare, Continued

Last week I began the story of the rather traumatic end of our trip to Spain as we learned that my husband's passport and wallet had been stolen. Resigned to the fact that we wouldn't be flying home the next morning, we cancelled our flights and prepared to visit the U.S. Embassy instead to acquire a replacement. We rose early and took an Uber from our airport-area hotel, arriving at the embassy shortly after it opened at 8 a.m.

Excited About Travel

"Where do you see yourself five years from now?" The age-old question, but does anyone ever truly know? Five years ago I graduated from Olathe South High School in Olathe, Kansas. First, wow!, time flies, but second, why is that question so pivotal near graduations or times of celebration? I can tell you this, not one person in my graduating class of 2015 would have predicted a pandemic across our early careers five years later. I would be quite shocked if anyone would have thought this is where we would be globally on midnight of Dec. 31, as the new year started just a few months ago. But, here we are, living through history.

Excitement of Summer

Summer is on its way, and I am ready for it. With summer coming, it gives us something to look forward to, a change in this new life we have. We are going to be able to spend more time outside, go on walks and engage in summer fun, just maybe not to the extent we are used to. The weather is starting to get nice and the days are longer, allowing for more time outside. I’m hoping my family, friends and I are able to do some of our normal summer activities.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
