I have never had any desire to visit (the big) Oktoberfest in Munich; a smaller one in a smaller town or city might be pleasant. No desire to visit Iceland either despite its success story; I've been pretty far north already (the northern parts of Québec, for work).
Israel is a small country in terms of land area and population, but also a generally prosperous one. Haiti has a relatively small population (thinking of coutries relatively nearby) but is also very poor and has many other ills so I doubt there has been much vaccination.
It's not about whether or not we would like to visit a particular country. It's about the fact that Germany, for instance, finds it imprudent to hold a giant festival while the pandemic still rages. I take that as an indication that we should continue to observe many of the cautious protocols still in place.
Meanwhile, I have (re)booked my first tiny domestic trip for the new season. I had booked it in March already but had to cancel. I know that some of you like to guess where I am going, but I will only tell you for the moment that it is one of the least popular cities in France, which eliminates quite a few possibilities. Direct TGV from Paris, though, which also eliminates a lot of places.
I dip in and out of travel videos, if I can find the kind that are true travelogues, not some guy blabbing directly into the camera. There is one dedicated to food that I like with a Canadian couple as the hosts. They are down to earth and I just love their enthusiasm: www.youtube.com/user/ToastWithJim
My favorite youtube traveling are the airline reviews. Yesterday I flew first class on Emirates, London to Dubai.
Thanks for the travel tip. If you want to see Paris in DETAIL, you cannot go better than the Paris resident, Cory Frye...A French Frye in Paris. He is sublime in every inch of the word. He has taught me so much. I cant wait to book a tour with him oneday.
