Phoenix ->Miami->ProvidencialesAugust 16, 2020 in Turks and Caicos Islands ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F
Day 1 - I caught a red eye flight out of Phoenix into Miami International (1st pic is of a very empty MIA) and was in provo by noon. The experience was surreal. Most of the airports are very empty and the flights are only partially filled. All of things have changed on airline travel is done now, face masks are mandatory everywhere and no issues with that on this trip.
The hardest part was leaving the US. To come to TCI you need a recent PCR Covid test (within 3-5 days), travel insurance for health issues or evacuation from the island, and a pre-approval travel stamp from TCI before you can even check-in) Even with all that I still ran into issues at the airports because the rules keep changing and the airline staff can't keep up.
It was a complete pain in the ass to get to TCI but sooooo worth once I got there. I took some amazing images from the plane as we were landing in Provo. Look at how blue that water is. I thought this can't be real :)Read more
