Travel Alert Continues…
* EU Anti-Terrorism Coordinator Gilles de Kerchove discusses the threat and the EU’s response from Strasbourg.
Despite the fact that the US/UK issued travel warning is over a week old at this point, signs that the EU are taking the threat seriously abound. France has raised its threat level to RED and has significantly increased its police presence at major tourist sites and transit hubs. In Germany last week I noticed a very large police presence at Oktoberfest and around the city of Munich in general.
While none of this will stop me from traveling and enjoying my time in Europe (nor should it stop you), a healthy level of cation is always prudent. Be aware of your surroundings, especially when using public transportation or when touring popular sites. Use general common sense and you should have no problems.
