There's a saying: "the end of the world as we know it."
There's also a book out by that title. Maybe there are a lot of books out there by that title.
Each day we face "the end of the world as we know it."
The situation can be different for each person. The world changes when one loses a job, house, spouse, children, when someone gets sick or has a heart attack or suffers a stroke. There are thousands of ways "the end of the world as we know it" comes about.
It appears that with all the turmoil in the world right now, there really could be another "the end of the world as we know it" moment that does actually affect the entire globe.
It could be catastrophic. It could be mind-changing. It could change the way or where we travel.
Right now, Greece, Italy, France and England don't look too inviting. Neither does New York City with the Occupy Wall Street groups massing on a daily basis.
There are other cities around the world facing the same situation.
But then again, there are still places that are safe to visit and enjoyable.
They can be close to home, or a couple days drive. Don't put it off. Keep on the lookout for good possibilities and take advantage of them.
After all, "the end of the world as we know it" may happen and we won't be able to travel at all.
