Quote from: Herman on November 27, 2020, 12:26:36 AMDon't know if you're aware, but Thailand is a totalitarian state for the benefit of an absentee king, his harem and a small elite of generals. The tourism is part of it.Thai people have been demonstrating for months now to put an end to supression, and yet, tourists are saying "but it's so lovely and cheap!"
Quote from: MusicTurner on November 26, 2020, 07:59:06 AMThat's one of the privileges of living there - the space and variation you've got. Yorkshire/Northumberland are on my wish-list too.
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: André Le Nôtre on November 28, 2020, 05:33:23 PMMy wife and I are itching to take an "Aurora Borealis" trip some winter, possibly to Norway. I was in Bergen in 2012 (Hotel Augustin) for a few days as a side-excursion from a meeting in Oslo. Would love to return with my wife, but we would also want to explore up the coast--Bodø, Tromsø, Hammerfest, are of interest. We are looking for a good chance to see the aurora, preferably very close to a beautiful beach and a nice town with good dining options. I am also looking to not have to rent a car or drive (as is usually the case when I visit Europe--Ireland excepted). Any advice?! Thanks!
Quote from: TMHeimer on November 30, 2020, 07:58:02 PMI was unable to go to the NYC area Summer 2020. Our summer Band concert series was cancelled (1st time since it's founding in 1969), plus the U.S.-Canada border has of course been closed since March. I did manage my usual 2 weeks at the cabin in Northern Manitoba last month. I'm hoping 2021 will see the border open and my concerts in NY a go. 2020 was the first Summer not doing concerts there for me since 1986. Of course, I hope the vaccine gets to Canada in time for me as well.
Quote from: Mirror Image on November 30, 2020, 08:12:50 PMI'm hoping to travel to Canada next year. I really want to go to Montreal and Quebec City, but I'd love to see the maritime landscapes of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. I mean looking at these photos, how could I resist?
Quote from: vandermolen on November 29, 2020, 04:02:06 AMI'd like to go to Iceland and to see the Northern Lights but my wife likes hot climates
Quote from: greg on December 31, 2020, 10:03:57 AMMost likely northern-ish Europe in 2021, was originally planning to go in summer 2020.Netherlands, Germany, Belgium. Possibly Sweden. But was a plan in progress, not fully set.And that was after scrapping the original plan of going to New Zealand/Australia.Was planning to travel abroad once a year after starting to make actual money, but half of those years will probably be Japan, staying away for too long sucks. Never been anywhere outside of the US except for Japan due to lack of time/money... Also thinking of taking a trip to Mexico if possible in 2021. Monterrey is only a five hour drive from the current city I'm living in. Russia is a country that has sort of captured my imagination more recently, though it seems it would be hard to get in. Within the next 5 years would be cool to take a visit.
Quote from: MusicTurner on April 10, 2022, 08:11:58 AMWas corona a factor for you, besides a certain war as regards prospects for Russia?
QuoteYeah, any international travel. Just seemed too risky.And Japan was closed entirely nearly the whole year.
Quote from: MusicTurner on April 10, 2022, 09:02:40 AMYes, these are sensible considerations for many; some of my family members went abroad in Europe several times though (Sweden, Germany, France etc.) & actually nothing happened, except of one social occasion, where it turned out they'd brought corona with them from Denmark to France. None got seriously ill, however.I also know a university student of Japanese, who has been unable to go there for 2 years. She went to Tokyo a lot previously though.
