Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, traveling was not permitted or advised for anyone. People have been stuck at home with their kids and longing for a vacation and a way to leave their stress behind. The allergy community has felt this more than others. During the pandemic, restaurants that would generally be happy to accommodate people with food allergies are now overwhelmed with the new rules and regulations. They turn down people with food allergies.
People with food allergies have been stuck at home, only eating home-cooked foods, no being able to eat out, and feeling very stressed.
Now that the Covid-19 vaccine is available for people worldwide, many people have been thinking of traveling and taking a vacation. Many people have rented or bought an RV and have traveled around the country. While this is a good option, it still comes with a lot of food preparation and stress.
Where is the safest place to travel to after the pandemic?
Asia has handled Covid-19 pretty well. However, their cuisine is full of nuts, sesame, peanuts, and other dangerous allergens. The chance for cross-contamination is very high, and there are most likely no allergy-friendly places to visit. The UK is usually an option, but their Covid-19 situation is still not stable and still unsafe. Israel, on the other hand, is a very safe country post-covid. Most of the population in Israel are vaccinated, and the country is starting to open up to tourism in the coming months.
