Holiday abroad ?

Are you planning a holiday abroad this year as we ease out of lockdown?

We had big plans for a foreign holiday this year as senior management is 60 (shhh) in June and we have been married 40 years this year.

Sadly we have put those plans on hold now until 2022, regardless of green or amber zones we just wouldn't feel safe being stuck inside a metal tube with 300 people for 3 or 4 hours.

    Same thoughts here will wait till next year 
    Think too many will rush into it and things change very quick like last year where people got stranded as countries went into lockdown at different times

    Not sure we will get somewhere overseas this year. Most likely will go somewhere domestic for a long weekend

    I think it best to save foreign hols till next year. There are lots of places in UK with disabled friendly accommodation.
    I help run a fantastic group called Limited Mobility & Wheelchair Friendly Accommodation. You can find us via Facebook.

          I'm counting the days till we can get some sunshine but I don't think it will be this year. Anyone who wants to be queuing in an airport for many hours for starters must be mad, and having to wear a mask on a beach.. no thank you. I'll leave it for another year and then see how things are and if it is still as it is then I for one will be staying at home.
