Some advice would be most appreciated. We have a trip coming up in about 6 weeks and in between the main destination, seeing that Europe is so cheap to travel in between, on my bucket list is Paris, France for 3 days, then off to Sicily, Italy for 6 or so.
The problem, this whole terror threat garbage. Reading the news basically said in France, that was a warm up and to expect more attacks in 2016. State of emergency until May 26 (we are going in June - even worse?). With possible attacks just being announced in Stockholm and even Rome, Italy a bit of a target.
Honestly I feel safest at home thinking about it, but the world is an amazing place with so many things to see.
I'm thinking of cancelling my flights to France/Italy (about $2000 so mega depressing, who knows if I'll get anything back at all) and going to Croatia which has a much safer rating atm and not much in the news in regards to attacks.
What do you recommend? Go and have fun, it's not that bad and the media is hyping it up? I don't my bucket list to… well you know… end with a bang.
Avoid the area and do you have recommendations of a different location? - This missus picked Croatia as the beaches etc look amazing.
What do you think? Thank you :)
