Traveling during Covid is surely not without its fair share of hiccups and hassles, unlike the old times where one could basically just pack up and go. Now, travelers need to come prepared with PCR test results, comply with country-based regulations, and have vaccine passports, among other requirements. “But I think the vaccine passport makes sense with all the vaccines being distributed across the world,” Lewis argued.
“At this point, having experienced many variables during travel, I think the vaccine passport makes it much easier. Despite all the paperwork and the uncertainty of changes during the trip, it didn’t bother me that much. I’m more patient now. I’m more inclined to take this seriously, and less inclined to put my interest above everybody else’s. The overall trip made it more than worth coming to Indonesia.”
Beyond his traveling know-hows, Lewis’ positive attitude shines through, which he chalks up to his Southern background. “I think the three most important things when you’re on a trip are openness to others, patience, and acceptance of people,” he enthused. “It can’t just be about you, what you eat, where you stay, or things like that. It’s important to be willing to accept the less unpleasant parts of your journey for the benefit of other people in the area – and to see the world you’re in without judgment. That way, you’ll have a better chance at having a great trip.”
