Arts-and-Entertainment Since September 11th, 2001, international travel has changed drastically. Quite honestly, all domestic travel has changed as well. Life since then will never be the same for anyone, not just when it .es to travel. Since many changes have been implemented in regards to domestic and international travel, travelers need to constantly be aware of what is going on.

He began to look incredibly un.fortable and while I felt a sense of sympathy for him at that moment, I couldn’t help but put him through my own scrutiny as well.
