About travel to France now

Since the atrocities committed by Hamas in Israel on Oct. 7, there’s been an alarming uptick in terrorist activity. The current situation between Israël and Palestine is tangled up with the potential risks of other terrorist attacks worldwide. Terrorism is a challenge for the international community. People need to exercise increased caution due to increased tensions in various locations around the world. France has raised its national threat level to its highest degree. Travelers shall remain vigilant at all times exactly like French citizens. However, there is no need for psychosis or fear. Life goes on.

The invasion of France by bed bugs was everywhere in the media. In fact, bed bugs have been parasitizing us for millennia, for 40,000 years. It is therefore a very old collective fear. Bed bugs have infested all the major cities in the world, Chicago and New York in the lead. Their presence in Paris is therefore no exception. These bloodsuckers are, unfortunately, everywhere. Over the last two decades, there’s been a “global resurgence” in bed bugs due to their resistance to chemical treatment.

At least but not last, free and independent media provide the public with information that allows them to make informed decisions; they demand accountability from leaders; and they present varied points of view, all without any government influence.  In countries where press freedom is limited or non-existent, the government usually owns the media or decides which media outlets can operate. It frequently censors information. And dissenting voices are muzzled. Moreover, certain media, for image, audience or commercial reasons, use “processes” dramatizing certain events or pieces of information. Via the choice of a title, vocabulary, typography, photo or drawn illustration, or through rhetorical effects, they bring out certain sordid and/or spectacular elements to attract the attention of viewers and readers.
