Although tbf this isn’t helped by a number of people not realising the Channel Islands are not part of the U.K. and have a different government.

UK Newspapers seem to be having another round of articles acting as though having one or two cheap holidays abroad each year is a human right, and it would therefore be 'discriminatory' to make people pay a lot for Covid tests.

I'm getting frustrated that no one seems to be taking the opportunity to question whether having people able to pay £20 for an overseas flight for a stag night etc. was ever really that good an idea for the planet or the destination and whether it might be better not to support a return to the previous 'normal'.

International travel as we thought of it pre-pandemic, is dead. It is probably better for the planet anyway.

Like the Python parrot, it's not dead, it's only resting.

Well, maybe. Time will tell. I'd like to travel as much as anyone but I am not making any plans.
In fact,I am not even hoping for it much anymore.

A friend said she was going to get the vaccine because she wanted to travel.

I said I got it because I wanred to stay alive.
