We’re Jenny and Logan, American Millennials with a passion for traveling and eating delicious food from all around the world. Our love for travel started in the UK where we lived and worked for a while, traveling to different European cities almost every weekend. So when we went back to our “normal” lives in the US, we knew we weren’t ready to settle down. This motivated us to plan a trip around the world and then a year in Australia. We decided to give this vlogging thing a shot and have really enjoyed sharing our travel journey. Who knows where we’ll end up next, so be sure to follow along to find out! :)

7-Day One-Way Flight?! (FLYING DURING PANDEMIC)
If you wonder if it’s worth flying during the Coronavirus pandemic, here is my nightmare. I am on my 7th day in 7 airports around the world trying to make it home. And that includes crossing the Atlantic ocean 3 times in 3 days, back and forth.
If you wanna know what's it like to travel during pandemic, I will also tell you which airline goes through your luggage and what was the only airline that provided hand sanitizers, masks, and gloves.
I am a Canadian-Romanian who got stuck for 4 months in Argentina during the Coronavirus. After 4 months, a flight carrier named Eastern Airlines got permission to do a commercial flight from Buenos Aires to Miami.
Being a Canadian-Romanian, I decided that my final destination would be Romania, to see my old parents, who’ve been freaking out during pandemic. So after this potential flight from Buenos Aires to Miami, I booked another expensive one-way ticket: from Miami to Romania, with layovers in New York and Zurich.
On the day of my escape from Argentina, I leave my Airbnb room to other stranded people, and I go to the Buenos Aires airport. I get there and I look for the Miami flight. Well, it doesn’t exist. Actually, it did, but the airline canceled it, or to be correct, they moved it to the next day. No email was sent to the passengers, no messages, no calls, NaDA. And get this: NOBODY from the airline was at the airport to explain this to all 300 passengers. They just sent one airport employee to talk to the crowd who came for the relief flight.
As Argentina is in lockdown -300 people are supposedly leaving back to their countries, but now - not anymore - and they have to find accommodation in a city that doesn’t take ANY reservations, there is no Uber, taxis available or shuttles to get them back 40 miles into the city.
What did Eastern Airlines offer? Nothing. No vouchers for the extra night accommodation, transportation, taxis, meals. At least not when everyone was there. I mean, they weren’t even at the airport, what did I expect?
I was lucky that a couple of people I’ve met there took me with them to the last place they’ve stayed at.
However, here is what Eastern Airlines did after everyone left the airport. After everyone took at least an hour to find ways back desperately and accommodation for the night, there were just a few people that literally had no options but to stay in the cold airport for the next 24 hours.
Then and only then, after waiting for everyone to leave with no help, Eastern Airlines offered to take the few people left to a hotel - not when everyone was there, so they avoided spending any more money.
We finally left Buenos Aires for Miami next day. Obviously, the cancelation of the first flight made me miss my connection to Europe. So I had to book a new one with Swiss Air, from Miami to New York, then Zurich, Switzerland, and Romania. I was excited about this new flight with the port of departure being Miami, United States.
I did fly from Miami to New York, then jumped on an overseas flight with Swissair to Zurich. Here is where it got worse.
I get to Zurich, but Swissair doesn’t let me on the next plane. Canadians don’t have a restriction to enter Romania during the COVID-19 pandemic. Then what’s the problem? Although I am not an American, my departure was from a US city, and the United States are banned from entering the European Union. They said: “Sir, you cannot go to your birth country and you can’t get out of this airport either.” I was like Tom Hanks in “the Terminal.”
They debated for 4 hours what to do with me. Then they say, “We will have to put you on a plane and send you back where you came from, meaning the US, and….the next flight is tomorrow”. For the night, I stayed in the terminal at their hotel, meant for situations like this. They took my passport and my luggage and told me they have to escort me tomorrow to the plane back to the US. Meanwhile, Swissair goes through my entire luggage, as I found my stuff completely rearranged in my suitcase.
They put me back on a flight Zurich - New York. However, after calling both the Romanian and Canadian embassies, I find out that I could still go to Romania only if my port of departure country would be Canada. So….once I land in New York; I booked a flight to Toronto, Canada, then to Paris then to Romania
7 days in 7 airports. So…if you’re considering travel during the pandemic, just wait a little longer.

- Gloves when boarding/exiting/going to bathroom/grabbing luggage
- Rubbing Alcohol to wipe down seats & screens
- Sat together in the BACK of plane to minimize contact with others
*many others on the plane wore raincoats/space like suits with eye protection too

Travelling During the Coronavirus Pandemic - UK to Italy - What was it like.
Are you living in the UK and thinking about travelling during the coronavirus pandemic? If so, don't miss this video!
I know that COVID-19 has made everyone wary of travelling. But with the pandemic controlled in some countries and travel restrictions lifted, traveling safely during this unprecedented time is still possible.
In this video I’m going to show you how was my trip from Oxford to Venice.
What it is like to take a bus, an airport train and a flight during the coronavirus pandemic.
You will also see how's staying in a hotel, use the public transport and visit tourist attractions during the pandemic.
While considering travelling during the COVID pandemic, bear in mind that:
Many people are still reluctant to travel. So you can expect fewer people at airports, on airplanes, buses, trains, and tourist spots.
Some airline tickets are non-refundable, however, most of the airlines are ditching change fees.
Check the airline’s refund and cancellation policy before hitting the button Book.
To enter in some countries, such as Cyprus, you need to provide a negative test on arrival, obtained within 72h before travel.
You must ensure you are aware of any additional travel documents you need for every country you fly to. Please check what’s required with local authorities before you travel. Some airlines, such as Ryanair, also provide this information.
Some points of interest are closed during the pandemic, while others are operating with limited time and capacity. Always check beforehand.
You may need to buy tickets in advance and for a specific time slot when visiting a heritage site, landmark building, etc. Check their website for further information.
You must be up to date with the government guidelines of the place that you’re travelling to and follow its recommendations.
Face mask is a must-have item, so make sure to always carry a comfortable one. You might need to wear it for long hours whilst travelling.
Travelling during the coronavirus pandemic is highly unpredictable. At any moment, travel restrictions and quarantine can be placed, boarders can be closed and flights can be cancelled. Be flexible with your plans and don’t get frustrated if you can’t travel.
Below are some tips to help you plan your trip during the pandemic:
Check your government travel advisory and follow it’s advice;
Look for destinations, hotels, and tours operators that are following COVID-19 safety guidelines;
Seek out countries where COVID-19 case numbers are low;
Book everything in advance and without cancelation/change fees;
Get at the airport earlier than usual;
Make sure to buy travel insurance that covers COVID-19;
Take good care of yourself.
If you follow this advice and take the necessary precautions, I believe you will be more confident, and safe, when you plan your next trip.

CDG for RWY 27R flight during pandemic corona virus COVID-19
Charles de Gaulle Airport joins EASA COVID-19 monitoring programme
Charles de Gaulle Airport is among 10 other aviation stakeholders to join EASA’s programme to assess the effectiveness of its COVID-19 safety measures.
Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) is joining 10 other aviation stakeholders to abide by European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) COVID-19 guidelines.
These measures, largely implemented at Charles de Gaulle Airport since early May 2020, helped the EASA and ECDC to establish a pragmatic and comprehensive list of recommendations, aiming at ensuring health and safety standards for air passengers and aircraft/airport operators during the COVID-19 pandemic – among which can be found: ensuring social distancing throughout the entire journey; the reinforcement of cleaning and disinfection protocols; mandatory wearing of facial coverings; and practising all hygiene recommendations, etc.
To monitor the implementation of those measures, the EASA launched a dedicated programme. The aim is to assess real-life situations concerned by EASA recommendations and to contribute to establishing a new sanitary standard at a European level, but also worldwide. The psychological dimension and the perception of those measures by the passengers will also be examined in this analysis.
To this end, Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport is joining forces with airlines – such as easyJet on Nice and Toulouse routes, and Wizzair on Budapest routes – as well as Groupe ADP (who are also collaborating with Air France) to implement sanitary measures aligned with EASA recommendations in order to offer the best security standard.
In addition, since 28 May 2020, three ‘sanitary corridor’ test flights have been carried out between Paris and Reunion Island, where passengers must comply with a 14-day quarantine. Those experimentations involve the two airports, as well as airline partners – Air Austral and Air France – and the French Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC).
‘Sanitary corridors’ must guarantee to the destinations served that passengers do not display any COVID-19 symptoms prior to their departure, nor that they will be exposed to the virus during the journey, thanks to the implementation of the EASA recommendations. In order to ensure this, passengers are screened upon arrival at the airport. Consequently, airport and airline measures are harmonised between the airports of departure and arrival and certify that sanitary standards are met at every step of the journey for maximal protection.

I love to explore and experience new to me destinations and places that are rich in culture and history. Even though my year of travel has ended I still want to see more of the world and explore things I have not seen before. To see what I get up to, (inbetween my not so 9-5 barista job) and maybe learn along with me, join me on this crazy, exciting adventure.
FLYING DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC || REPATRIATION FLIGHT TO SOUTH AFRICA (Barcelona to South Africa)
I'm back with another video.
Want to see what it's like to fly during the Covid-19 Pandemic? Well I had to make the decision to return back to South Africa for many reasons. I was for sure excited to finally get on a plane after 6 months. It was so weird finding airports empty, having to keep my mask on and shield the entire duration of the flight and having a 12 hour layover in Doha. I flew 27 hours from Barcelona, Spain to JHB, South Africa.
If you're planning on taking a repatriation flight to South Africa, I hope you find this video helpful.

FLYING DURING COVID 19 PANDEMIC - July 2020
I had to travel to the UK to renew my Iraqi passport at the Iraqi embassy in London. I got very stressed out the night before because I didn’t want to travel during the pandemic, but I had to. My UK visa expires soon, and I wouldn’t be able to renew it on my passport which is expiring in couple of months too. So, I HAD to travel.
I traveled from Shannon Airport to Stansted, an hour flight, got on the train to London for 40 mins, then used the tube for the best part of two hours. Submitted my passport renewal application. After that, I traveled all the way back to Stansted airport, spent the night in a hotel in the airport and finally traveled back to Shannon the next day.
It was weird to put on the mask at the beginning, but I got used to it and forgot about it.
People weren’t allowed to sit in the restaurants, that was very annoying for me because I needed to charge my phone as I used it for Google maps a lot.
I had to quarantine for 14 days when I came back to Ireland.

Flight Attendants are Still Working | Love in the Time of COVID-19
Love in the Time of Corona | Hello Vogue!
Like several other crew members, I've been feeling reflective about our careers and the world around us - and it turns out that I had a lot more to say than I imagined: How our flights are doing, what precautions we are taking, what we are looking forward to. It's really nice to connect with you this way.
I actually didn't mention why we are still working, but people still are trying to get to their home to quarantine and medical supplies are being transported as cargo.
Welcome to my Toronto layover - this is real life what I do when I am settling in - I'm sure everyone is different - but please, feel like a flight attendant for a bit :)
