Thanksgiving travel is not for the meek, and this year is driving that point home — no pun intended. This is the first Thanksgiving holiday week since the Covid-19 pandemic was officially declared over, and people are clearly making the most of it, whether heading to one of the cheapest countries to visit, a great place to have a vacation home, or just your childhood home.

Whether you've already traveled to your destination and have to head home later this week or are gearing yourself up to make that trip, there's plenty to know about. And if you're the one just waiting to receive guests this year, good for you — that's a whole other form of stressors and responsibilities.
