Understanding State Department Travel Alerts

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

The State Department's web site
explained that a travel alert
is issued for short-term events
like political demonstrations
or a health issue- the H1N1

The State Department issues
travel warnings "when we want
you to consider very carefully
whether you should go to a
country at all." A travel warning
might be issued for a country
in the middle of a civil war,
on-going violence or frequent
terrorist attacks. "Travel
warnings remain in place until
the situation changes," the
State Department. "Some have
been in effect for years."

Usually, travel companies, tour
companies and travel agencies
will follow the advise of a
travel alert or warning at
first. In the case of Egypt,
travel companies worked to
get their clients out of the

Tour companies are starting
up trips to Egypt again while
the State Department's travel
warning is still in effect. In
an attempt to re-start tourism
business, tour operators will
collect their own intelligence
about whether it is safe to
return to a destination, give
clients that information and
let them decide.

"Our decision to head back to
both Egypt and Tunisia came
after extensive meetings with
our ground operators, community
leaders and tourism officials,"
Alan Lewis, chairman of Grand
Circle Corporation, which owns
the travel brands Grand Circle
Travel and Overseas Adventure

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
