Plus, a note from us:
Just as travel has been put on hold, so too will the next two issues of Vacations & Travel magazine. Given the current coronavirus crisis, our authors can no longer journey around the globe to bring you the captivating and engaging stories Vacations & Travel is known for. Instead, we will continue to publish digital content and use the downtime to refocus the magazine in time for the summer issue later this year.
