A question I've never been asked before: "Do you have a nostril preference?" Fast and easy testing at @NYCHealthSystem Covid Express site.

You might think the pros are immune from travel disasters, but our call out to readers was inspired by former @NYTimes Travel editor Nancy Newhouse, who wrote to me about a layover in Dallas that ended up stranding her for 2 days, without her luggage.

And @WanderWomanIsMe won Honorable Mention from @SATWFoundation in Foreign Travel for what the judges called "easily the most useful article in this competition." It was a simple idea: Tell readers where in the world they can go. It's still going.

And the always amazing @ElaineGlusac won Bronze in Investigative from @SATWFoundation for her "hard-hitting and extremely timely piece on the joke that is travel insurance." (Never let it be said that we pull our punches.)

When the world turned upside down we at @nytimestravel endeavored to explain it to readers. The @SATWFoundation Lowell Thomas Awards honored that effort. So many winners for the @nytimes, including 5 Golds.

Love the judges' citation for the Honorable Mention in Foreign Travel for @WanderWomanIsMe in #SATWFoundation awards: "This is easily the most useful article in this competition. One would be a fool not to check this frequently updated report before even pondering a trip abroad."

Joshua Miele, the subject of this piece by @WendellJamieson from 2013, was just named a MacArthur "Genius" fellow. It's a fascinating and heartbreaking story.

@amyvirshup The I-70 Colo. mudslide that halted my drive to Utah & meant a night car sleeping & a 2nd at a b&b where the host berated me for wearing a mask. But lemonade was made since Bryce-where I was headed-had flooding while Grand Junction area-where I detoured-was a hidden treasure!

@amyvirshup Took me 3 days to get home to ORD from CDG. Stranded overnight in NYC (went to all 3 airports), and next night in IND. Ended up driving back to Chicago from IND bcs I got a migraine so bad from all the travel, delays, and jet lag, that I was also "grounded."

I have been many beautiful places in Italy, but all I can say about Castelluccio di Norcia and this piece by @helenecooper is, Wow!
