Just over 20 years ago the firm I was working for were a bit down on orders so asked if those with holiday could take it asap.
The Mrs and I asked the girls 9 and 4 what they'd like to see if we could drive anywhere. They had a little conflab and decided  on Brookside and Spaghetti Junction. So we booked several Travel Lodges
 Drove in and around Spaghetti Junction, found a small estate that looked like the set of Brookside (daughter no2 was happy) checked out the sites of Liverpool, all.three.of them. Stayed the first night in Southport and then worked our way up the coast. Made our way up the coast through Preston, Morecombe, the lakes, the fells, Hadrian's Wall, Newcastle and the Angel of the North (just finished). Then down the other side. Hi light for the Mrs was the Lake District for me it was all the really nice people we met and the girls? We asked them when we got back. Another conflab and it was The McDonald's Breakfasts!
Wasn't planning a holiday this year but would like to repeat the idea. This time it will just be me. Destinations will have to have an Art Gallery close by. Hopefully the Country will be getting back on its feet and a few quid from me isn't going.to change much.but it's a start.

No don´t everybody is coming down here at the moment, the safest place is to stay at home (at least for us living in Cornwall)!

The travel to that place might be oversubscribed, panic buying!

A lot of people won't be able to go anywhere since they haven't been able to work and get a pay check. 
Yeah but many have to have something to look forward to, maybe the Governments will provide a financial package for that?

Booked flights from Boston to London mid May....Off to Scotland for family reunion, back south via a few days in the lake district. A whole month planned, down the swanee now.  Just have to postpone it I guess.

When things have calmed down and it's safe to travel again, I'm gonna take a trip to Torquay, England.  Book a room there.  Hope to see, even just from my room view, Sydney Opera House, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically.  Ideally, Krakatoa won't be erupting during my stay.

Will you have a room with a bath?

Oh yes.  But I will insist it at least be big enough to drown a mouse or two......

When and I say when this is all over expect some travel bargains by anybody still operating.

Back in the early 90’s I got a great deal to Australia as companies were trying to get people to travel after the gulf war.  I would expect the same to happen

If it’s football again we maybe travel over to London and watch a team called Fulham FC. Otherwise out to the cottage on the island in the Stockholm archipelago.


I had island hopping around the archipelago on my list. Maybe next year.

You are then invited. Just let me know when it’s happens.

We're the same, a week after you by the looks of it, Chicago>LHR, though unless this L4 is reduced to a Level 2, the misses won't be allowed to travel unless she wants to lose her job, her firm doesn't allow it, so we're holding on at the moment hoping it doesn't get worse here.

Fulhamfan666. - Well, we WERE going to travel a bit, Lima, Mach Pichu, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Puno, Titicaca, Colca Canyon, Arequipa. But who knows now when we'll get there.  One day!   Seems as though you know it?

Wow that sounds amazing!
I went a couple of years ago with my family (Lima, Cusco, Ollantaytambo, Colca, Agues Calientes, Arequipa and Machu Pichu) and it was pretty surreal!
Definitely worth it!

Tirol, presumably, not Pongau. We're booked to go to Rauris. However...

I purchased my wife a world map.... gave her a dart and said "throw this and wherever it lands I'm taking you for a holiday when this pandemic is over".
Turns out we're spending two weeks behind the fridge.

Let’s be honest about it some of us may not ever again be going on holiday or even watching another football match. Good luck everyone
