The recent attack in Brussels shook the world and made everyone feel very hesitant to travel abroad. I have few clients changed their minds in traveling to Europe since the Paris attack and a lot asked me if it is still safe to travel. I am no expert in safety nor an expert to know what is going to happen next. BUT I do know that there is no “safe” place anymore in this world and we can’t be hiding.
The Paris and Brussels terror attacks are just two out of the many attacks that have happened around the world. Joining them, there were attacks in Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Jakarta, Afghanistan, Somalia and a lot of other lesser reported ones. YES, we are living in dangerous times and if you call yourself a Christian and you believe in the Bible then this should not surprise you at all- “the last days” as it says. It sure does scares everyone including myself. But I keep my faith and lived life one day at a time.
As I have mentioned in a previous blog, despite these evildoers and their atrocities, my family will continue to explore the world and meet with good people along the way from whichever ethnicity or religious background. I’ve advocated travel as a means to learn, to have fun and discover the unknown; it may have originally applied to places but it applies just as much to people.
Seeing the people stranded in the wake of the Brussels attacks it got me thinking as to what to do when we are abroad during a terror attack. I researched news reports, articles, and blogs. Here are few helpful articles I found for you to read and keep:
Happy and safe travels y’all.
