Talk Travel: Life Abroad During a Pandemic

Wondering what life is like right now in other countries? Some of our members are expats abroad, while others were traveling when borders closed. They will share what life abroad during a pandemic is like in Thailand, Portugal, South Africa and elsewhere.

This meetup was recorded on Saturday morning May 2 at 9am PST. This was the best time when coordinating with people in time zones around the world.

Special thanks to Dana in Thailand, David in the Philippines, Maurice and Amy in South Africa, David and Sharie in Portugal, and Michelle in Mexico. Also to Angela in Australia for sending in her experiences.
