Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans.  Proverbs 16:3

COVID-19 and our trip

Honestly, we can't post anything definitive here because the rules in the countries we visit (and in the U.S.) change daily.  Restrictions are lessening and we will refine our plan in June based on the rules that exist then.   Countries want tourism to fully resume but safely and we want that too.
