1. We worry enough about ourselves, you don’t need to do it for us.
We’re not stupid. We watch the news, hear the stories, and see the problems around the world the same as you do. We understand the dangers and potential threats of our travel plans without you having to remind us. Constantly bringing up the dangers is not only stressful and annoying, but honestly a little bit offensive. We are not naive. We’ve thought long and hard about this. Yes there are risks, but we are prepared to take them.
