The way we travel has changed dramatically since the Coronavirus outbreak. In this bonus episode, Kyle and I candidly share how our travels have changed since the pandemic, how we plan to travel in the future, and things to consider if you decide to hit the road.
While traveling right now is a personal choice, we feel comfortable with exploring smaller, rural cities 3-4 hours from home. Although we are avoiding air and train travel (unless a necessity), we are excited about road trips and staying at privately owned rental properties.
My biggest takeaway from visiting Vermont during the pandemic is to be flexible, take all the necessary precautions to stay safe and healthy, and to only do what you’re comfortable with.
