Subject: Re: Travelling or staying home this year?
Hi, all! My husband, son and I travelled to Europe only four months after 9/11 with wonderful results. Everyone was so friendly. We are planning on six weeks in Sept/Oct of this year. We never gave a thought about cancelling. One thing travel gives you is a sense that people are people. You take sensible precautions (as you would at home) and enjoy. The friendlier you are, the friendlier they are. People the world over respond to a genuine smile and a warm greeting. I believe that if more people traveled, the world would be a more peaceful place.
