Are you planning a trip abroad?  Do you wonder where it's safe to travel to?   Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs has released an awesome interactive map, that is up to date and shows you where its safe to travel to and where it is not.  There are 5 different categories that are assigned to the country: Exercise normal travel security precautions, Exercise normal security precautions; a regional travel advisory is in effect, Exercise a high degree of caution, Exercise a high degree of caution; a regional travel advisory is in effect and A nationwide travel advisory is in effect.

I was surprised by the map.  Mexico and Jamaica, popular tourist destinations, are colored as a warning.  I was just on a Caribbean Cruise, and 3 out of our 4 destinations come with a warning!  Make sure you check out this map!
