Drag queens don’t have an easy gig.

Between the intense travel, demanding choreography, elaborate costuming and makeup artistry — it’s a lot of heavy lifting.

Drag during the pandemic lockdown of 2020 was a whole other animal.

If anyone should know, it’s Jaida Essence Hall (also called Jared Johnson when out of drag), the winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” season 12, who snatched the crown from her living room back in 2020.

Lip-synching for her life from her couch, she proved top-tier drag performances can happen anywhere, even via Zoom.

Hall is set to perform July 31 in “Rupaul’s Drag Race: Werq the World Tour 2022” at Playhouse Square in Cleveland.

She’ll perform alongside a slew of other loveable RuGirls from various seasons. The stars slated to perform in the Cleveland show include Daya Betty, Angeria, Vanjie, Kameron, Rose, Jorgeous and Asia O’Hara.

As the tour’s name implies, this show travels the globe, giving the queens who haven’t worked together yet nothing but bonding time, which Hall is excited about.

“When you’re on the tour, you are separated from all your family and friends. We all only have each other

Iceland is internationally famous as a natural wonderland. The landscapes one sees in Iceland are otherworldly and an experience no visitor ever forgets. Iceland is a country that almost every visitor ranks very highly – it is a land of volcanoes, dramatic coastlines, and impressive glaciers. One of the fun activities to do is to take a glacier tour of the famous Vatnajökull glacier.

Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see glaciers – and a myriad of other landscapes found nowhere else. Iceland is also the only country where visitors can actually explore the inside of a volcano – Thrihnukagigur (spelled “Þríhnúkagígur” in Icelandic).


Vatnajökull Glacier – The Largest Glacier In Iceland

The Vatnajökull glacier is massive and covers around 8% of the country. It is the second-largest glacier in Europe (there’s a larger one on the European side of Russia) and the most voluminous ice cap in Iceland. Because of its massive size, it is visited with countless self-drive tours, guided packages, and more.

TravelAwaits looks into tour trends now that a test to return to the U.S. is no longer required.

We reached out to some of the top tour operators in the world, G Adventures, Tauck, Intrepid Travel, EF Go Ahead Tours, Trafalgar, and Globus, to find out whether the U.S. dropping its testing requirement has had an impact on bookings, and also to identify emerging tour trends. Here’s what they had to say.

Tour Bookings On The Rise

We asked major tour operators if they have seen an increase in bookings now that the U.S. has dropped its testing requirement to return to the U.S.

“Absolutely. While interest, and bookings, have been steadily increasing, the CDC announcement definitely gave a boost to sales for both summer and fall travel bookings internationally. It seems that many people were still hesitant to book a trip because of the x-factor around protocols to return back to the US. We’re also seeing more countries open borders, which of course helps with bookings,” said Steve Lima, G Adventures director of marketing for the U.S. and Latin America.

“We are continuing to see strong bookings for travel this year. Since April,
