In last month’s Sound Off question we asked thousands of you to weigh in on when you would realistically take your next international vacation.
 
Well, you were loud and clear: nearly half of all respondents (48.2%) said they were planning to travel between now and the end of 2021!
 
And as vaccines become more readily available, entry requirements are easing across the globe making that dream a reality. So go ahead and dust off your suitcase, grab your passport and let’s get ready to go!

In your words
 
We love to hear from you! Jerome, who has traveled with us many times, booked another adventure with us this month, and here’s what he had to say:

5 stars
"Friendly Planet is my first choice for travel. After finding Friendly Planet by chance about 5 years ago, I have booked about 10 trips through them. Booking is always easy, with plenty of detail about payment schedule and any passport/visa requirements. I have recommended Friendly Planet to everyone who asks me about my travels."
