With the whirlwind year that was 2020 now behind us, it’s time to look towards the year ahead. I am curious if people are making travel plans for 2021.
A vaccine for Coronavirus is being rolled out, but I think anyone celebrating that is very premature. It will be months before that makes a difference to travel.
My Travel Plans For 2021
At this stage, I have flights booked to head back to Dublin during January. Once home again, I have nothing in the hopper for the rest of the year.
After so many flight cancellations and changes in 2020, I need a break. There is little point booking something and then not going, due to Government restrictions and so on.
That being said, I do plan to head over to Denver to see friends, once we are permitted to do so. Otherwise I’ll be staying in Europe.
All going well, I’d like to see friends in Scotland, England, Netherlands and France. Right now is not the time to book though, as everything is up in the air with the pandemic.
My gut feeling is that it will be Q3 at the earliest before we will see things start to return to normal, which is at least six months away. We have already seen that as soon as restrictions are lifted, the virus spreads quickly, so it will likely be a bunch of rolling lockdowns for a while yet.
Even so, having a few ideas in the hopper is necessary. It means that as soon as options become available, I’ll be able to pounce and start booking again. I’m looking forward to that!
