International Travel is still very important to us. Our economy, world affairs and even recreational travel makes this world go around. In light of the recurrent terrorist attacks in airports in 2016, are you now afraid? It appears that terrorism is taking a bloody hold in society.

Travel abroad is important. It is allows us to see the world we live in from different perspectives. Is travel safe? Should we be worried? Should we surrender our passports? What are the answers to our many fluid questions. No matter how we look at it, the global world still exist and we are a part of it. We can not allow ISIS or other terroristic groups to control our very lives. Many people still move about the world even though, there are risk involved.
