Welcome to my travel diary! We just spent two awesome weeks in The Netherlands, got incredibly lucky:
In June, the Dutch started accepting American tourists. We arrived in August, and a few days before returning home, the Dutch announced that America has way too much COVID, too risky! Taking a huge hit to their large & these days distressed tourism industry, they made an announcement:
To stop more COVID coming, all American visitors must prove vaccination AND quarantine 5 days on arrival, get tested & if positive, quarantine 5 more days. Yikes! So we got tested at a great storefront clinic that does nothing but COVID swabs. We tested negative: required to return to America. International travel is crazy complicated today!
I took pix of everything & more, lots of cool little details, not just the obvious “Here we were” pix. Too much to share on FB & I know WordPress from past use… here we are! I’ll keep adding stuff as long as I have some left: its fun!
I hope you enjoy it, that’s what makes this sort of thing spark!
