The risk of being victim of terrorism while traveling has been in ascent in the last decade. The attacks that once were centered on airplanes have spread to hotels, tourist’s hotspots and, as seen recently, airports. In fact, just about any gathering that reaches a level attractive to a terrorist is today a possible target. In my case I have to admit that terrorists have been partially successful in instilling fear. I would not think of traveling to most parts of the world, even to countries like China (where you expect an iron control of everyday activities) unless there is a direct flight from a ´´safe´´ city, say somewhere in the US or Canada. Sadly, Europe is not included in my travel plans. So I am left with North America (because of rigorous security) and places which do not seem to be of interest to terrorists, like the Caribbean and Latin America, although the latter carries some danger from common criminals. What kind of world will be leave to our children?
