Is the risk of the second spike/two week quarantine on return not convincing people to just stay at home/staycation instead?

I mean, the weather in the UK at the moment is pretty great, just pack a car and go somewhere you've never been in the UK.

Going away in a week to Italy, if they tell us to quarantine for 2 weeks when we come back I'm really not that bothered, we're in the house most of the time anyway, plus to be brutally honest since I've had it and have the antibodies I'm less nuts about not sharing oxygen with other life forms.

Aye but the U.K. is a shitehole and full of arseholes. Whole point of going abroad is to try get away from brits. At least that’s what I try and do when I’m abroad.

This pandemic has taught us a lot about people.

Seems like a good year for it.

Also looks like I’m heading to Venice on mon. Up to date recs? Knew I’d shared a few in here before last time I was there… Jewish quarter has best best non-tourist stuff

Have you seen the availability and price of accommodation right now? The data show my family and I have more chance of getting hit by lightening than dying of coronavirus.

We’ll follow the facemask and social distancing rules so not pass it on to anyone.

I’m wfh until January so quarantine not a big deal.

So why spend 2 grand to go to Bognor when I could go to the Vendee for a fraction of that?

Just back from 3 weeks in Italy. Following the face mask and sanitizer rules was easy. Weather was bloody amazing and the change of scene was worth it.

Also going to Italy next week - missus' family live there so heading to Milan, then driving over to east of Venice! 2 weeks out of London/UK, can't wait.
