Default Time to travel again?

We booked the Grand Canyon for a few days (El Tovar) in May. Then Rome for several days (have been all over Italy, but never Rome, so a bucket-list checkoff) followed by a cruise home next November. Hopefully, we'll all be safe to travel wherever by then.

Good luck Glenn. I’m just hoping to get to Hawaii in February, maybe Switzerland to visit family in May and go on to Hi End Munich.

Tony - thank you. b-in-law lives in Maui and reports they are doing quite well at the moment and everything is open. Let's hope it stays that way.

Think we may be getting ready to turn the corner to safe travel. Fond memories. With grand-daughter in Le Jardin Du Luxembourg, June of 2015. She's now a freshman at GW.

The best laid plans of mice & men......................
Both of our trips were canceled (May & Nov) in the last two weeks by the companies we were booked with, for covid reasons. So, we've wait-listed for Venice(4days)/Florence(3)/Rome(6) at the end of Oct and, in the meantime, Ottawa tulip festival the 2nd week of May followed by Montreal & Quebec City.
Got our 1st vaccine shot on 1/19 and scheduled for the 2nd on 2/9. Probably head to FL for a couple of weeks towards the end of Feb when we are feeling 'safe'.

Two more fall trans-Atlantic cruises canceled. Next one booked to Bilbao for April '22.
In the meantime, we've managed Key West & Winter Park for a few weeks late winter/early spring. Also, a couple of days in Corning, NY to visit the Corning Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum. Stayed in the Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton, PA on the trip home, which is quite well done, though just reopening after covid.
Looking forward to a swing thru the Finger Lakes wine region in July, unless Canada opens and we can head up to Ottawa & Quebec City.
Do wish everyone would get vaccinated so we could end this scourge.

We had an Alaskan cruise and Israel trip cancelled because of Covid-19. We are all vaxed up, have the documentation in our passports, and are re-booked for our Israel trip in October of this year. We hope to cruise the Danube and spend a month in Sorento, Italy in 2022. I agree, get vaxed and let’s travel! We miss it!

I wouldn't show too much hope for Europe,they are glacially slow with their vaccination progress. Finally got my new bike, but it might not even be blighty come September.

I wish I had known you were in Scranton, Glenn. Glad to see Trax bar & grill in the Radisson is now reopened.

We would have been happy to have you join us. Next time.
Trax served some good fish & chips (a very generous portion - + Black & Tan on tap) and an excellent piece of salmon. Carmen's had not yet opened, post-Covid.
Here is the chandelier over the bar. A great building to explore.
