Quote from: André Le Nôtre on November 25, 2020, 02:48:03 PMMoscow would be great indeed! Extremely expensive from what I understand. We were in St. Petersburg for a couple weeks in 2007 with side trips to Tsarskoe Selo and Novgorod, and it was incredible. St. Petersburg may be the most beautiful city in the world--art surrounds you. The palaces, museums (e.g., Hermitage!), parks, bridges, churches, public buildings, monuments are breathtaking. I highly recommend St. Petersburg if you are in Russia. Unfortunately we did not make it to Moscow, but we probably should have tried.
Quote from: André Le Nôtre on November 25, 2020, 01:38:50 PM(...) Anyway, we are hoping to get to Spain next year (May/June) for about a month. A likely itinerary is Madrid, Granada/Cordoba, Barcelona, San Sebastian/Bilbao--each site for about a week. We are particularly interested in the museums, architecture (Gaudi cathedral, park, etc.), food, wine, and the remnants of Moorish culture (Alhambra, Mosque in Cordoba, etc.)Challenges here include vaccination (how soon we can get ours), how well-protected we will be even after vaccination, and the cost. I wonder whether the cost of flights and accommodations will skyrocket next year due to pent-up demand for travel. Don't know whether we're pushing our luck hoping to do this in late May-June. Any thoughts? Any trips you have put off due to COVID? Any plans/hopes for 2021 travel?

Quote from: The new erato on November 26, 2020, 12:30:00 AM'Send me an PM whenever you decide to visit western Norway. I can provide you with guiding and perhaps some company/accomodations.Personally I hope to be able to travel late 2021. San Sebastian/Galicia is high on the list (I've been there twice), but late autumn isn't optimal on the Atlantic coast.
Quote from: steve ridgway on November 26, 2020, 07:45:19 AMWe prefer to stay in Britain and go somewhere with our dogs. Wouldn't mind going to Northumberland again, it's very quiet and a couple we're friendly with have moved there.
Quote from: Que on November 26, 2020, 11:35:44 PMFor after COVID (AC) my wife and I are discussing a leisurely trip to Asia, possibly Thailand.And when things get really back to normal, I'd love to do some trips to Italy.On my wishlist is attending an open air opera performance in the amphitheatre in Verona, for instance.
