Session: Foreign Travel in a Post-Pandemic World

6 p.m. Wednesday, May 5

Someday, when the vaccine rollout is complete and the pandemic is brought under control, we may set out again to travel the world. A lot will have changed since we last went abroad. Cultures, countries and economies have been ravaged. America’s role in the world is different than it once was. What will travel look like in a post-Covid world? No one is better equipped to prepare us than European travel guru, Rick Steves.
