Humans of Coronado – Would You Travel to Europe Right Now?

Humans of Coronado is a photo series where we “bump” into residents and visitors around the island, completely unplanned and unfiltered. It was inspired by Humans of New York. Next time you are out and about around town, you may just find yourself part of the next HoC series!

This segment of Humans of Coronado concerns the recent terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium.  On Tuesday, March 22, 2016 explosions rocked the capital of Belgium in two separate locations, including Brussels Airport and at the Maalbeek metro station.  Terror group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the suicide bombers’ coordinated attacks, and there is evidence to suggest that ISIS has plans for more European attacks.  The U.S. Department of State has issued a Europe travel alert, which doesn’t expire until June 20, 2016.

These Humans of Coronado, who all happened to be ladies, were given the following scenario:

Suppose you won an all-expenses paid trip to Europe, requiring you to leave tomorrow. Assuming that work conflicts, childcare, school schedules for your children, and any other factors that may prevent you from accepting this prize are not an issue, would you accept the prize and embark on a European vacation tomorrow?
