You probably haven’t done much traveling, if any at all, over the past two pandemic years. If you have, it’s most likely been by car, and not by airplane. Business travel, family trips — it’s something we’ve got penciled in for… sometime, eventually, maybe.

Not everyone’s hunkering down to that degree, though. CNET’s Antonio Ruiz-Camacho, for instance, has family living abroad, and he’s made a point of flying to see them. And of staying healthy and making sure of the same for his loved ones. He’s written a captivating story about how he deals with taking COVID tests, getting through airport security and booking refundable tickets, and he has some tips to pass along to you.

That story is among the many in-depth features and thought-provoking commentaries that appeared on CNET this week. So here you go. These are the stories you don’t want to miss.
