I often get questions like: “Should I go to this country?”, “Is it safe to go to this country?”
As you probably know, part of the reason this blog was created, was because I wanted to write about my travel habits, strategies, etc. The latest is that I find myself on the Canadian government website much more often that I used to.
The Canadian government has a very comprehensive website with Travel Advice and Advisories specific to Canadians. Since adding baby girl to my family, I have become more vigilant about which countries I would like to visit. Does not help that she just turned 2 years old, which means we would need to pay for her own plane ticket, even if it meant redeeming points. So this will be grounding me (pun intended) more than before. Road trips have become more of a norm for us for the time being. Will look into some posts in the coming weeks about optimising your road trip, especially with spring having started!
Anyway, back to the travel advisory. If you spent a lot of time reading the warnings, you may get a little depressed. So read it, but maybe not let it control your life. Conversely, if you read the U.S. warning about travelling to Canada, especially the Safety and Security portion, it should put things into perspective.
What other advisory websites do you consult when helping you determine which country to visit next? Please share in the comment section below!
