I would discourage US citizens from visiting SA, they don't deserve the foreign income. South African business owners are corrupt and racists alongside their crooked government. Don't give them donations, let them starve like rats and wallow in their poverty.
First Indonesia Solo-Trip: Guide For Girls 10 July Share☺️ This idyllic dream of travelling alone has been haunting many women back since the book “Eat Pray Love” came out. To go away and leave everything behind, have some new experience and make acquaintances, but everything all by yourself and your thoughts. Sounds awesome, right? Lately this kind of trips has became especially popular. One of the main reasons is ‘retreat trips’ concept appearance — solitary journeys for spiritual or psychological working on oneself. More and more people leave their normal life and surroundings for a few days or months, fully dedicating themselves to self-discovery and complete silence due their own various reasons. Solo-travelling — is an extremely powerful practice, that majority just don’t have enough courage to experience because of the number of insecurities or fears. We have created the guide for women, who really want to try solo-travelling, but yet don’t know how to correctly organize it or who to ask for an advice. So, here it is: Safety First! The main thought that hits the girls’ mind, who’re planning a first lonely journey is if it is safe enough to do? Of course, tourists attract much more attention, but it’s not always a bad thing. On Java, for example, you seriously have to be very careful. Actually, you have to be cautious literally everywhere — avoid going to places you feel uncertain about and listen to your gut. Try not to scream ‘I am a tourist’ by your look, don’t sit in stranger cars, don’t put your valuables and belongings in the same place and don’t go to the ‘dark districts’ alone especially in the night — these rules are always crucial to remember. Women who are doing solo-travelling for a long time recommend turning on the tracker, so your relatives and friends always know your location — Find Friends for IPhone, and Glympse for Android. Of course, it’s wonderful to meet new people in a new place, but just be careful to someone, who is intrusively offering help or a company, so trust, but verify. For example, there is no hitchhiking tradition in Indonesia, so when one suggests you a free ride — better look for some proven taxi in Facebook groups. Furthermore, when you’re alone, it’s important to remember that your route should be more well-thought-out to be ready and know what to expect. That’s why our next tip is also related to the safety: Plan Your Journey In Advance. At Least a Little Bit It is obviously super fun to go wherever the feet takes you without the precise route, simply following your heart. But still, if you are on a solo-trip, try to approximately imagine where would you like to go the most: first of all not to waste time looking for attractions when you are on spot, and secondly to know what to be ready for. We suggest starting your journey in Bali, drive through Ubud with staying there for a couple of days, then go to the other island Java to visit volcanoes Bromo and Ijen and world famous temple compounds Prambanan and Borobudur as well. If you’re willing to see some extreme locations with hard and sometimes dangerous paths, for example mountains or volcanoes, you should certainly better not get going on your own. For that there are a lot of special group tours to those places, which you can always join. Even if you want a complete loneliness, it’s safer to find yourself like-minded people joining the Facebook girl solo-travellers groups. There you can read feedbacks, recommendations, advice to understand what to expect. Here's one of them. The full self-exploring training in Indonesia is obviously yoga and meditation practice. We mean, if not there, then where? You can finish your trip on Vipassana near Jakarta. It is an unique spiritual experience so be sure you are registered really beforehand. Experiment, relax, listen to your instincts Reasons why you need a ‘retreat solo-trip’ can be very different — social exhaustion and runaway from the fuss, will to discover your inner self, just a vacation, new experience, wild random decision or reboot. If you are uncertain about flying to the other part of the world alone, maybe you should go solo somewhere closer for first time — Europe, for example. And then go to the Indonesia with renewed vigour. Consider it as a spiritual practice and complete meditation in quiet time only for yourself. But please, don’t forget about safety — it’s a key in different culture and religion country. Take your time for the trip, as much as you need. We’re sure you will be thrilled.

Coronavirus response requires cooperation, not overreaction

How can the private sector help minimize the damage from coronavirus? (via The Hill)

2️⃣ Don’t overreact. "Canceling meetings or restricting domestic travel when contrary to government guidance can inadvertently sow panic and unnecessarily harm the economy."

3️⃣ Prepare to be helpful.

Rep. Gus Bilirakis

Brand USA supports 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙨 of American jobs and generates 𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 for the U.S. economy every year. Thank you, Rep. Gus Bilirakis, for championing this important legislation from beginning to end. Your leadership ensures Brand USA will continue working for ALL of America.

ICYMI- My bill to reauthorize the Brand USA program was signed into law last week. This important program has a proven track record of boosting international tourism to the U.S. without costing taxpayers a dime.

The move to upgrade U.S. airports

Investment in airport infrastructure is vital to America's connectivity, economic growth and place on the global stage. Now is the time to #FixOurAirports. 🛫

Plagued with outdated airport terminals, the U.S. is playing catch-up to Singapore's Changi Airport, consistently ranked the world's best, as New York tries to put its best foot forward with new terminals at the notorious LaGuardia

Brand USA provides incredibly positive impact on the U.S. economy and jobs base at no cost to the taxpayer. Thank you, Senator Cory Gardner and all the lawmakers who championed its reauthorization.

Since 2013, Brand USA:

🇺🇸 Brought 6.6 million tourists to the US
💵 Generated a $48 billion economic impact
💼 Supported 52,000 jobs a year

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays from all of us at U.S. Travel ⛄ 🎄❄️ We hope you’re enjoying this special time with loved ones. Safe travels!

Thank you Rep. Gus Bilirakis for all your work to #RenewBrandUSA before the end of the year. From introducing H.R.3851 to helping advance this important legislation through Congress, you’re a true champion for the travel industry in Florida—and all of America.

Last week, President Trump signed the 2020 spending bill into law. That bill included legislation I co-authored which reauthorizes Brand USA, a successful public/private partnership that promotes the United States as a destination for international tourists. Our legislation renews the program through 2027 and resolved a funding glitch that threatened its existence. Brand USA is funded through a fee on international visitors. In 2018 alone, it brought 1.13 million international visitors to the United States, generating an economic impact of $8.9 billion. The tourism industry is a job-creating catalyst that drives Florida’s economic engine. The BRAND USA Program has a proven track record of boosting international tourism to destinations throughout the U.S. without costing tax payers a dime. I am proud that we were able to work together in a bipartisan fashion to get the longest ever reauthorization of this vital program across the finish line.


U.S. Travel’s Year in Review 2019
