Well, I did some research on Grenada. I am a solo traveler and I have to travel to relatively safe places. Grenada is safe, although I am alert and keep my eye on everything.
One Writing.com friend told me to check the travel advisories on the State Department’s website. I did and Grenada is marked at a 2: be on alert for COVID-19. I was curious about other countries and almost every other country was rated as a 4: DO NOT TRAVEL because of COVID-19. Even the Grenadines and other Caribbean Islands were a 4. Only Israel and Grenada were 2s.
So, I decided that I will wait. My passport is good until 2026 and I have time. I’ll plan something for when COVID-19 is a memory and I will use this time to my advantage: I want to pay off more debt. When I’m able to travel again, I’ll have more of a peace of mind.
I’m disappointed, but I can go to Brighton Beach. I love Brighton Beach and I can have just as much fun as I would have in Grenada. It’ll be a wonderful summer, even though it’ll still be different than normal.
