Post Coronavirus Trips

Recommended Posts

A lot of us had to cancel vacations due to Coronavirus.

 

In order to be more positive, what are you thinking about post-Coronavirus.

 

I am hoping the worst is over in 3 months and I can take most of September off. If that is the case, I am thinking Paris, South and Southwest France.

One would think there should be some bargains to be had both domestically and international if the  worst case scenario threats begin to subside (or never materializes)  in July or August.   I still think I'd stay away from some of  the current  hot spots and stay close to home.   Mexico (Cabo or Puerto Vallarta)  or name your Caribbean Island via Air and not a cruise look like an option.    And not an all inclusive, but maybe a boutique type hotel or an Airbnb???     Although some of those all inclusive resorts ,  if they are hurting might be putting together some  packages which are too good not to pass on.

I'm thinking about it ramping back up in the fall/winter like the Spanish Flu did.  Which was deadlier in the 2nd wave because it mutated.

We have some simple domestic vacation travel planned in July-August -- trip to Laguna, to Kissimmee (to meet friends from Norway), and a beach house in Texas in August.  Right now, I wouldn't be surprised if the only thing that goes forward is the Texas beach house.

At this point, I'm worried about whether my daughter will be able to travel back to Canada for college in the fall.  Sigh.

We have $2,200 to spend with AA so I hope we’re at least able to use that this year. I have a trip to Europe planned for July right now but would be shocked if that happens.

At this point I'm thinking small. Just that first time I can head down to Bandidos for a margarita, to Parliament for a julep and smash, and Bottled in Bond for a smoked cherry old fashioned will be a glorious day. 

Living OCD fucking sucks. I hate it

Well if we can avoid the Saviors, me and the fam may head out to trade with Alexandria and the Hilltop. We also hear the Kingdom has movies and is lovely this time of year.

There may not be anyone to evict. We can just recolonize.

You know how it goes - “it’s a nice area except for the Italians”

You should cut the folks in charge of the food and wine some slack.

I have a wedding to go to in Madrid on October 31st.

I'm hoping that that's still on, but due to elderly family, if gatherings are still limited in size, I might have to watch online.


Other than that, I was hoping to go over a little early and finally meet (meat?) a single mom in Mannheim who I've been casually interacting with for a few years. She's kind of a mess, so I'm thinking that it could be a lot of fun.

Wondering if my Argentine citizenship would give me special rights to "repatriate".

I don't have a drop of Italian blood, nor is anyone else in my family even Argentine, but with about 55%+ of the country being of Italian descent, they may just open the doors to "us", because we know how things work and wouldn't have to culturally adapt.

If my lady friend is able to visit from England in October, we'll be doing a road trip to Sedona, AZ, by way of Santa Fe.  The Grand Canyon will be on the agenda.  If travel restrictions aren't lifted by then, we'll go whenever she can get over here.

Is that because you're a Nazi?

Too many public stops along the way for me.  Unless you did it straight camping style, which I don't do...although I may have to start.

Wife and oldest daughter were doing Machu Pichu in June. That'll most likely be pushed to '21.  I was going to take the youngest to the Bahamas as a consolidation vacation since we didn't think she was quite old enough to do that 9 day trip. I have rebooked the Bahamas SWA flights since they dropped from $500 to $150.  I'll probably end up pushing that one to August (hopefully) and take the whole family.  We'll probably all go to Peru next summer.

Going to Yellowstone in July.

I would imagine the number of foreign tourists will be a fraction of the usual.  What a great year to plan that trip.

I'm wanting something simple like floating the San Marcos with a large group or restaurant hopping Isla Mujeres. Both sound great right now.

Well, I have a lot of German heritage, but I missed out on the Nazi thing by about a half century, and that was the Jewish side. The Christian Germans came over well before the Yids. All my peeps came from Europe directly to what is now the U.S. in the 200 years before Ellis Island. 

Mom one side I think that we’ve been in Texas for about 100 years, but I’m the only one who can actually speak Spanish. (My sister can mash some words together to sound polite, but she can’t speak it.)

We just don’t have Hispanic or Italian heritage. In Argentina I was mistaken for an Italian on occasion, but I also was thought to be Germán, Polish, and Ukrainian, but never English or American. 

I’m an enigma.

I'm supposed to be in Rosemary Beach the first week of June with two other families.  Current plan is to fly, but if domestic flights are restricted at that time I figure we can drive.  And if restaurants are closed, then we can always buy groceries and make our food at home.  But the big question is whether they'll shut down the beach, which would essentially kill that vacation.

We had just gotten companion pass and the lady friend had just gotten her passport. We got a Cabo trip in right before the bat shit hit the fan, so I'm grateful she got to experience Mexico for the first time. We had a bunch of weekend plans lined up that will have to be postponed, but here's what is on the agenda: 

Chicago

NOLA

Belize 

Playa 

Pacific NW
