Definitely not France. I did enjoy my most recent visit to Portugal but it's a PITA to get to from the West Coast.

If I'm going to sit on a plane for 10+ hours it would have to be somewhere more interesting culturally. I've seen enough Gothic churches and medieval towns in my life.

And I really really don't care for a lot of French food.

When it looks reasonably safe I'd go back to Mexico. In the meantime I'll make do with some US travel..Alaska next month. Maybe a trip up to the Bay Area in July (should ask my sib if I can house sit if they go to in FR), Second Spring in Arizona Sky Islands, Desert Southwest in the fall.

Envious of you European travelers. Sticking closer to home with a Seattle visit in August for a MLB game and some fresh seafood. Later in October we'll go to the central California coast. No international travel plans until Spring 2022 at the earliest and everything can be postponed or cancelled if necessary, though I certainly hope not.

Australian borders are still closed unless you apply for a special exemption and are approved. Earlier this year my cousin was approved for a trip to the Middle East to see family. Her return flight had approx 24 people in economy/coach. She then had the mandatory 14 day hotel quarantine (at her own expense) before she could head home. So we have absolutely no immediate plans for international travel. I’m sad about it but it is what it is. My passport has expired and I doubt I’ll bother renewing it for at least twelve months.

This year's graduation trip (#13 of 14 nieces/nephews!) to Paris + another city won't happen in June as is typically the case. Husband and I are both fully vaxxed, nephew has had 1st of 2 jabs, but I am still a bit leery as everything I hear from peeps on the ground in Paris is that the locals are generally horrid at masking/distancing so another surge is not out of the question. Plus, my mobility is still not quite 100%, with stairs being a major issue. I'm hoping that we can reschedule the nephew for Spring Break 2022. My jonesing for a Paris visit is not relieved by learning that Chez Alain has reopened the rue Charlot location for takeaway.
We have not been on a plane in forever, have no plans until August when we go to NYC for niece's wedding.

I want to go to the U.K. for the Euro cup finals but it’s not looking so good, unless they allow vaccinated people without all those tests and quarantines. I would maybe go to Paris if Pepper von Snoot will have a Malbec with me.

From a curious Australian (there is a much more cautious approach here and we are not allowed overseas at present) is there quarantine for returning American travellers? If so, how does it work? Testing on arrival back in US?

We are booked for Iceland in August as well as February, and Costa Rica in January.

We might head to Alaska in September as our family asked us today to join them for the moose hunt.

Would like to, but my 2nd vaccination is june 23rd, so no travelling yet in july for me. Maybe from september, IF no dangerous variants emerge.

Also, NL has such high prevalence, that "abroad" doesn't want us, because Dutch travellers are an infection risk.

Two weeks ago I booked a trip to Italy in September and a trip to Paris for December/January. One of the things that might make me change my mind about going is the mandatory mask wearing while outdoors. I'm hoping the EU will reconsider the mandate.

Iceland twice?

Did look at going there in early June until word got out that mainland Europe were likely to allow vaccinated Americans to visit.

Are you vaccinated?

For the next year or two, you're likely to see restrictions still in place. Maybe not outdoors but certainly on public transportation, museums and some other venues.

Oh yes, fully vaccinated for two months! Now following the news re the possibility of needing booster shots. No problem with masks on transportation and indoor venues. It's just hard for this old gal to breath outdoors in the heat with a mask on!

scrb—yes, twice 😊 Iceland Air had a winter offer that was too good to pass up and we also wanted to go then, so we jumped at the opportunity.

Yeah that's true, it's going to get hot over there.

But unfortunately they have had more restrictions than we have. They still have curfews there and they've just started outdoor dining in some of the countries as well as being able to travel between different provinces.

Just have to hope their situation continues to improve and they decide not to require masks outdoors.
