The year 2021 may or may not have eased ambiguity surrounding health and social restrictions, but in 2022 we are in a significantly better place, and for that, we give thanks.

Now that vaccine passports are in place, plenty of countries are open to returning and new travelers with entry requirements set as they see fit.
