Please tell us where you went in 2021.
We are like many who were restless to travel and were unsure about foreign travel so we did a local road trip to see friends and family. We traveled several mid-west and southern states: Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
As fall came we felt more comfortable so we spent 2 weeks in Portugal and 4 weeks in Spain.
It is great being on the road again.

Like you we visited family...on the east and west coasts. Unlike you, our international travel was postponed for another year. I'm so frustrated!
In 2021 I went from Germany to
- Austria (twice)
- France, Spain and Portugal
All of this without problems as I am twice vaccinated.
Next year I want to make
- a city trip to Kiew (Ukraine) if possible
- a journey on the Transsib from Russia via Mongolia to China if possible
- maybe a city trip to Tunis (Tunisia)
- maybe a journey to Taiwan
I am curious if this is will be possible.
This would add 4 countries to my list which reaches then 59 or 60 (I need to count again, when I have some time).
I'm interested to see the combined list this year compared to previous years, as it will show the effect of COVID. With the endless surges in the US, the furthest I got from home was less than 300 miles 😞. I really hope next year will be better.
In 2021 we went to Amsterdam, and to Kenya, for a safari. It was a fabulous trip and we were so happy to be travelling again. It all went smoothly, despite the various covid complications and requirements. We are planning our next trip to Croatia (and London, and hopefully Italy) in May 2022.

We enjoyed reading about you Africa trip. We are planning to travel to Corsica, Sardinia Malta and Sicily in the spring. April/ May if all goes well. Let's compare schedules. It would be great to meet you since we are so close.
Thanks Dave and Merry. That would be great to meet you both, let’s see closer to the date if our schedules will allow. In the meantime, enjoy your travel planning.
We travelled recently to Colombia South America, and we also took our daughters to Disney in Florida a few months ago, but that was too hectic to even do a blog about it! Lol In the past 2 years we have had to cancel a couple of trips due to illness and the COVID Pandemic, including a 10-year anniversary cruise, which was disappointing. We hope 2022 brings us more chances to travel safely, and that all of you enjoy safe travels as well. D &MJ have inspired me to try Spain again, guess we will see!

We feel like we hit Spain and Portugal at the right time. We felt safe as we stayed outside a lot and everyone was wearing masks.
Still nowhere since 2020! This pandemic makes it difficult to go anywhere. That's why I haven't written in a while. Though I still have some overdue blogs from three and four years ago that I've yet to write about
In 2021 we were limited to domestic travel in the United States, but we did begin to travel overnight again. We made road trips to North Carolina, Ohio and Delaware from Northern Virginia.
Let's continue this discussion by speaking about 2022. As for me, 2021 was very difficult and unpredictable, and we were limited to domestic travel within the US.
But this year we have the chance to resume our trips. The first place on my list is Louisiana and Florida. <snip>In Louisiana, there is a medium safety risk</a> . In Florida, there is Miami with hot beaches. The second is Alaska, especially Klondike. And if it would be possible - Canada cause I've never been there before, but my husband is from Toronto. So, I want to see the place where his childhood was. What's about your plans for 2022?

There were no restrictions on leaving the U.S. in 2020. It was personal preference.
We traveled to Spain and Portugal.
There is a thread for 2021 travel.
Traveling is not only a path to self-discovery, a pleasant way to get new emotions and experiences, and an opportunity to expand your horizons and meet interesting people. It is also a great tracker for those looking for their other half. I recently got a free tour on <snip> please no commercial links. I went for a few nights and met the love of my life there. I always wonder about it, what would have happened if I hadn't gone?
