On to Plan C: A Return to Travel by Jeremiah A. Gilbert tells the story of traveling again after the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions were lifted. Two years of planned trips had been canceled, but now the world was opening up again. It’s 2022, and Jeremiah wanted to use his travel credits from canceled flights to plan a trip for himself and his wife. Up to date with vaccinations and with masks firmly in place, they set off on the first trip, battling health and fitness problems and the ever-changing rules of entry to each country. Is this the new normal, or will travel ever return to the easy way it once was?

On to Plan C by Jeremiah A. Gilbert is a fabulous tale of travel after the pandemic that reflects the issues we all faced when trying to get back to normal. It’s a wonderfully open, honest account of their adventures, the battle to keep up with the entry requirements for each country that seemed to change daily, and the COVID-19 testing requirements in each place, too. There are hundreds of photographs in this book, some color, some black and white, all helping to bring the tale to life. If you haven’t been brave enough to get on a plane since the pandemic was over, read this book. It will help you see how much easier it is now compared to when the world was just beginning to open up again. This is a fabulous book. Jeremiah is a talented writer and photographer, and his words leap off the page at you, with his descriptions and stories written in a way that makes you feel you are living the adventures with him. Highly recommended.
