This is the 30,000-foot level I mentioned in the overview.
We document where we might go and what we might see, in not too much detail.
I suggest that you:
- copy the questions below into a Word document, or equivalent,
- discussing them and write down your answers
- let them sit for a few days, then revisit them.
If you then agree that you’ve got it right, the next step is to see if it’s possible by sketching out flight availability, timing, etc.
- What country or countries? What cities, towns and other specific places? Why?
- What month? What date constraints are there?
- What’s the anchor – the must-see event or place? Is it date-specific?
Discuss it with your fellow travellers; add delete and change.
Once that’s nailed, what’s near there? Might as well consider seeing that too.
- Step 1: reachable by local train or a rented car, etc.
- Step 2: maybe worth adding an intercity train or a short flight?
- Step 3: you know, why don’t we just return home from Xxxx?
What airports (or other hubs) will get you to and from the key points?
- Note that flights to the EU via the UK may not be as easy as in the past; London Heathrow has a warning about that
- Check Google Flights and maybe your favourite airline, or the one you have points with; look especially for whether they have a nice simple routing
We’re assuming that you’re planning now for travel later. Even so, you need the latest information on what COVID-19 restrictions would affect you if you travelled now. Then you’ll have to find sources to help you predict what to expect when you travel.
- Latest info on where’s safe?
- links to COVID information for countries, states/provinces and cities
- London Heathrow and Singapore Changi speak well on how to do COVID planning
- G site re airline route planning
