Measles Outbreak in Europe

 Measles Outbreak in Europe

Particularly when cases of the disease are rising. You may be wondering; why is measles on the rise, and is it still safe to travel to Europe?

From Cam: As someone who believes that advice usually comes from a place of personal bias, my intention here is to share my own experiences – not to give direct advice.

So far in life, I’ve dropped out of college to manage a rapper, quit back to back high-paying startup jobs within six months of each other, and decided to move to Asia for six months (which has since stretched to nine) with a half-baked plan.
