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.  I can tell you what we did for 2021 travel but we fully expect it to look much different (and be easier!) in 2022.  Countries want tourism to fully resume but safely and we want that too.
