I was looking last night at a proper blowout holiday, it's been years since I've been to Ibiza but it'd be perfect to celebrate the end of the lockdown with. I had a trip to Bruges and Prague cancelled last year, so it'll be nice to get away and prices are pretty decent at the moment.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with immunity passports. I'd like to see them brought in, I think they're a good idea to help things reopen faster.

Probably go camping in scotland again at Easter.


Hopefully get abroad later in the year. Would love to do a mini tour somewhere around Europe, but multiple destinations will probably be a no no.

They 100% should be brought in. The sooner the better. I need to start doing more city breaks as well. Take a long weekend and pick randomish European city to visit.

It's hard to see Europe getting back to normal by summer, so if it is the case that they've still got closed or socially distanced bars, nightclubs etc., the UK government should make the most of it and encourage more local tourism. There's so many gorgeous parts of the country that people don't give a chance, but Scotland has scenery just as nice as anywhere in the world. The Lake District is beautiful, Yorkshire has lovely areas, we're lucky to have plenty of idyllic places all over. Obviously the issue here is the weather but it'd be nice to see the government introduce some equivalent to 'Eat Out To Help Out' that encourages people to have a holiday in the UK. After a rough year, the industry needs it too.

We travelled about Scotland this year for the first time in years. Few coastal places and the cairngorms.

It was beautiful, and we got great weather. It was a really good holiday.

We will probably just hit the one location this Easter, rather than move about.

Some beautiful places in the UK. I do miss travelling abroad though. We had a couple of nights in Paris at the start of last year, and that was it for international travel.

Holiday talk is like an aphrodisiac for me these days. Probably think about it every day.

My girlfriend turns 30 this year, and amidst all the death, loss of livelihood and personal tragedy, it’s worth sparing a thought for her. She wanted to travel to 30 countries before her 30th, and we’ve grudgingly accepted that won’t be possible under the circumstances.

We managed to get to Spain for two weeks in July and see Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid and chill in a small coastal town. I actually preferred Barcelona during Covid, just because it limited the number of tourists. The downside is the clubs were all closed.

The only way I won’t travel abroad this summer is if it’s legally or physically impossible to do so. Ideally, a week in Spain followed by 3 weeks traveling Europe, sightseeing, wandering and partying. Failing that, I would head to Asia for a few weeks and do similar. All of that fails, if a single country trip is the only possibility, then we’ll probably head to Japan.

Please rephrase the line "My girlfriend turns 30 this year" to "My ridiculously fit girlfriend turns 30 this year". If you get bored of her Khaiser, I'll take her off of your hands.

You mention you went to Barcelona, how was that? Espana is a place I've never been, I must try harder.

I was supposed to fly to The Hague, Netherlands in December to see @junior-soprano obviously Covid put paid to that.

I hope you get away on holiday, sometimes we need a break.

Dreams are free but international travel is unlikely for the forseeable future and those who refuse to vaccinate are likely to be in for a longer, perhaps even indefinite wait.

I dare say some of those plans from back in June posted earlier in the thread would have had rethinks since. Knowing what we know now l would not go near some of the places mentioned for some time to come.
