I think we can face the same risks anywhere, including here at home. So no, it doesn't affect my choice to travel. Making my annual trip to St Petersburg, Russia to visit family in October.

No, in fact France is on the list, it's part of my heritage. It's more budget & time this year. We went after paying down one of our properties this year to remove the PMI and took smaller vacations. 

Risk is always part of life & therefor travel. I love to travel abroad too much to worry about it. If anything happened, no regrets; I love to travel. I'd rather die in Europe than on my couch in front of the TV.

Now is a great time to travel abroad. Just stay away from the crowds and you'll be fine. Your odds of being gunned down by a "terrorist" are about the same as being struck by lightning... twice!

Yes I am Ginger Harper , my family is from Madrid Spain and just received a message from my Aunt letting me know she was leaving Madrid and spending 2 months in Marbella and wanted me to come join her.  As tempting as it sounds, I do not feel comfortable traveling to Europe right now.

Risk is at home as much as it is abroad.  It might just seem more daunting due to it being away from home and and area that one possibly has never visited.  aka the unknown.  

There are some countries that are at war that I would stay away from, but most of the European countries I would definitely visit and be vigilant just as I would be at home.

I'm always hesitant to travel anywhere that involves a plane, because I can't keep my usual tools on me.  Do I worry about shootings?  No, but at home I'm preparred and I have my eye on a helmet.

 

I'm not as worried about someone going all "aloha snackbar" on us, I'm more worried about the general violence and mayhem being committed by the "refugees" across Europe and coming here.

There are too many other beautiful places to visit, including the USA.
