What's it like traveling internationally right now? In today's video, I share my recent experience traveling to Ecuador and also the story of how I got stuck in the USA for 6 months! You can also watch and share this video on Facebook and YouTube.

This was my first time on an airplane since the pandemic began, and I'll admit… I was nervous.

I've been on countless planes in my life, but the uncertainty of the situation had me on edge. There's been a lot of conflicting information online about the new airline rules and what to expect with plane travel, and immigration restrictions seem to change very quickly from day to day and country to country. It's hard to keep up and find reliable info.

I put together this video to share my experience for those of you who have been wondering what it's actually like to get on an airplane and travel post corona. I also share the story of how I got “stuck” in the USA for 6 months.

This was my experience, and yours will be different depending on where you're coming from and where you're going, but I'm hoping that this video will help relieve some of the uncertainty that you may be feeling about your trip.

My best advice after traveling to Ecuador is to ensure that you're overly prepared, have all your paperwork ready, and are familiar with any COVID test rules of the particular country you're flying into — as many countries (like Ecuador) are requiring that you have a recent negative COVID test result on hand.
