    Just looking at our spring discount-trip to Åre 2021 - Swedes might have reached herd immunity by then. (I hope :whistle: ).

    Alps - well, no idea!

    Be interested to see how this season goes in Europe, with high rona numbers at present due to all the Summer travel. I struggle to see how well Winter can go, until the vaccine arrives.

    Unlike elsewhere in the World, massive numbers of people arrive by train and bus and transit through busy airports and stations and then onto crowded trains with limited toilets and cafe carriages..

    We have no plans. We'll be watching (from afar) with interest.

    I had a plan to spend a couple of months next year in Europe.
    It won't be happening and hopefully only on hold for 12 months.

    Na. Other issues also having an influence.
    Will be 21/22 (assuming world is more normal by then)

    Edit: doesn't mean I wouldnt consider a couple of weeks if borders were open, just not the BIG trip I had planned

    Yeah. I’m dreaming of a week or so in Tignes, Banff or Saas Fee for Easter next year.
    Unlikely.

    You will be lucky to go anywhere apart from maybe NZ or a few Pacific Islands anytime before Easter or mid next year

    Sadly to be expected., Combine chalets with bus transfers, train transfers and staffing, its a Covid nightmare

    Not only covid - Brexit and no deal was already making it impossible.

    Above article studiously avoids any mention of what a no-deal Brexit would add to the pandemic disruption to Brits winter holiday plans....!

    Yep the aforementioned UK passport that we’re applying for may not have the power it used to.

    Not good

    Plenty of apartments left in the place where we stay in Val D. Never seen this many available this late. Offering 10% off to get people to book
