The Christian Science Monitor looks at the worried families of travelers in Egypt

With the protests in Egypt turning violent, family and friends with loved ones in Egypt are getting increasingly nervous about their safety.

Gloria Goodale, staff writer for The Christian Science Monitor, covered this concern in her article, “Egypt protests from afar: Americans wait nervously for loved ones’ return.”

I spoke to Gloria about the work Friendly Planet Travel has been doing since the protests erupted to secure the safe arrival of our travelers in Egypt back in the U.S. She was kind enough to include this information in her article.

Thankfully, after days of nonstop work, Friendly Planet travelers are on their way home today. But thousands of other Americans are still waiting to get on a plane, which is nerve wracking for family members. Flip over to the article now to read how families are coping. Thanks again Gloria for including Friendly Planet Travel in your article.
