TRAVEL WITH UCLARA

International travel just got easier. "As of 12:01AM ET on June 12, 2022, CDC will no longer require air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight." 

There are only a few spaces left on our December trip on the Danube. Links below, plus 2023 trips to Egypt, South Africa, and the river trip on the Rhine and Moselle. We're thinking ahead to 2024 as well. Here are some ideas: Croatia yacht cruise, Morocco, train trip through Switzerland, Historic France (80th anniversary of D-Day), Australia and New Zealand.
