Not coming over for the Christmas markets then and FB Sloe Gin? ;)
I sure am. Plan is to come to the UK for a while, fly to NY, sail back to UK then check out all the Christmas markets and find somewhere where I can definitely have a white Christmas - watch this space.

I'd best slip in another sloe berry picking session when I'm back in the UK then!

How good to back into the swing of things and booking trips that have a might chance of happening!

Have a 40 night Vancouver-San Diego-Sydney cruise next October. Got Cathay J award fares to Vancouver via Hong Kong. Qantas is not offering direct flights above Y for us bottom dwellers.

In 2023 we have a Copenhagen-New York cruise deposited. Everything is refundable.

Planning an islands of the Med tour, Corsica, Sardinia, Malta and Sicily. Initially my wife was keen on going for 3 months when this was one way to get out but with that winding back now 6 weeks Aug/Sept.

Since I'm now retired she has given me permission to stay a bit longer (or go earlier in the year somewhere or both), keen to visit a few places I have never been before so either Albania/Cyprus or Georgia/Armenia/Azerbaijan. Under normal circumstances the latter would be my pick but not sure how they will doing on Covid Vax rollout by April/May which is when I would go if going early, and probably cold by October. Choices/choices!!

I still have a roughly $3000 hotel credit in Tokyo from the Olympics, and I am hoping to use it in the later half of the year.
Hopefully even take my daughter for the trip.

Booked award with SQ to almost empty my KF account and finally fly with them, MEL-xSIN-IST in J, March 2022. Two or three days in Istanbul, then 3.5 weeks in Europe, I think...
I can't be the only one booking after yesterday...or maybe I'm the only foolish one...!

BCN-xAUH-MEL on Etihad in J on hold via AA. Was a tough choice between DUB and BCN for the exit port. But decided Spain edged out because I feel they'd be less likely to throw on heaps of entry restrictions compared to Ireland, assuming the northern winter is not too bad.

So early 2022 plans then - looking like Norway has removed all restrictions and I have always wanted to go. Firming up to be 4 days in Istanbul, a week or more in Norway, couple days in London to visit friends, then fly somewhere else and end up in Barcelona before home. Hopefully staying COVID free of course.

I had booked for Apr 22 School Holiday (plus a week or two) but have since cancelled, our choice. I have rebooked for the Sep 22 school holidays (plus a week or two) and hopefully these will not be cancelled by the airlines. So it looks like London, Paris, Annecy, Geneva and possibly Vienna are on the cards.

Flight home London to Sydney via Perth booked for September. Hoping to get a chance to get over to Aqaba, Jordan from the UK before I head back to get in some diving in the Red Sea. In December we've got a trip from Sydney up to Coffs lined up too, hopefully evading the summer hols!

Long as I get home, I don't care too much about my other plans! I've seen waaaay more of England than I planned/wanted lol. In all seriousness though, I'm not too worried. I deliberately booked back to Aus later than I wanted, specifically to minimise the risks. I think by next Sept things should be relatively normal. Prob still some things like masks rules on flights and testing / proof of vaccination, but I think the borders will be pretty reliably open on most routes by then. First half of the year... I wouldn't book anything that I was too fussed about and couldn't get full refunds on.

Normandy for two weeks end of Jan to middle of Feb. Very close to locking it in. Michael Gunner states likelyhood of no quarantine on international return to NT from 18th Jan 2022, no absolute guarantees though.

Well an update....
Hotel emailed me to say they're closing their doors permanently, so will now send me a refund.
Which will take a while cause I long ago closed the card used to book the place.
They'll contact me for bank transfer details when that refund request bounces back. So could be a while.

Adding insult to injury, the whole thing was and is being processed in yen, which has significantly weakened against the Aussie dollar lately, so I'll be out several hundred dollarydoos when all said and done.
