Still on track to go to Greece next month.

“Now they are forcing you to wear masks and to do similar kind of things that are impositions to you. To me, they are violations to your freedom.” he said.

The young tourist is right.

Juan Truque, a tourist from Miami, said he wasn't vaccinated but took a test so he could travel to France via Spain with his mother.

“Now they are forcing you to wear masks and to do similar kind of things that are impositions to you. To me, they are violations to your freedom.” he said.

Would he complain the same way about his mother being "forced" to cover her head if visiting the Middle East?

How about being "forced" to remove his shoes if visiting a Japanese Temple?

Or back at home in Miami, does he create an uproar for being "forced" to wear clothes in public?

Such violations of freedom...

None of these require an invasive medical procedure whereby a sharp metal object pierces the skin and chemicals are injected directly into the body of an unwilling and non-consenting subject.

Neither does wearing a mask, which is the "freedom violation" this tourist was complaining about.

I can only see positive developments for fully vaccinated travelers - they can travel more or less freely!

These "terrible violations of freedom, being forced to wear a mask" are a small price to pay.

I live in Japan, am vaccinated and intend to get the vaccination passport but I am totally mystified by the

Japanese version ! Why didn't the government use the WHO standard yellow booklet (International Certificate of Vaccination) ? It's recognized all over the world and doesn't require lengthy negotiations with individual countries like the sheet of paper issued here.

And still stock markets are booming and the talking heads telling us all is great. This restricted life will likely be around for the forseeable future.

Went to Greece and Cyprus all of last month. Great to travel again, but it's miserably hot there.
