Will you likely take a trip internationally after the pandemic ends?

Some of us have been itching to get out of the country and travel internationally, others of us, not so much. When the pandemic “ends,” do you think you’ll take a trip internationally? Perhaps you already have?

What about an international RV trip? We’d love to RV around New Zealand! Or Mexico! Or Iceland! Or France! Or Canada!

Please answer in the poll below. Thanks!

We are just finishing a 3 month motorcycle trip from Germany through Turkey and Greece and back to Germany.

I want to do an Alaskan cruise but since Canada is so chi com virus crazy it will probably be ten years or never before I can do this cruise. So I can only dream of Alaska since most cruise ships journey out of Vancouver. O well Canadas loss. Not mine.

I didn’t think of our recent trip to Ontario as “international” since it was a 2 hour drive to see family. We are booked to go to Sicily in May, this was rescheduled from last April. By March we will know if we are actually going.

Hopefully off to the Canadian Maritime provinces to chase icebergs next spring. Newfoundland has some great sites to see and France is only a short ferry ride away!

Off to Ireland maybe Wales then home. A continued trace of half the family roots. The rest is right here with American Indian heritage. Had a great military career and traveled 37 countries along with Mexico several times living in New Mexico and Arizona and lived in Manitoba Canada and traveled all except BC. But can’t wait to return after 40 years to Ireland and Wales. And I had no problems with hate. It is the arogence of americans thinking they know better or can’t accept certain ways others live. I personally observed those attitudes or conflicts. Ya the great Americans.

My wife wants to take a cruise, and while it would be great, it still costs about as much as a three week RV trip. Instead, I think we will finally go to Europe, hit Spain, France, Italy.

In 2019, I signed up for a 16 day Cruise from Miami, through the Panama Canal, docking in Los Angeles 16 days later. Covid was REALLY getting started then (I sailed Fri Feb 14 & docked in LA on Mon Mar 2. At that time, passengers on the Cunard Princess were dying of Covid). I then had to fly back on a PACKED “Red Eye” flight to get to my RV. Before that cruise, I had started looking into “RTW” (Round The World) cruises. That idea has been pushed WAY to the back of the shelf for quite some now and, I don’t know how long it might be BEFORE I deem it safe enough to travel that extensively again (as much as I’d like to do so). At this point, I’d just be happy to transit through Canada so that I can RV in Alaska.

We have tickets flying to London, UK in 5 days, then a 14 day cruise with 4 stops enroute to Ft Lauderdale, FL. We are fully vaccinated including booster, the cruise is a vaccination required cruise. Additionally, we wear masks in public.

Not only NO but H___ No. So much to see and do in the US in an RV.

I said probably, but not sure. Thought of getting on a plane, suitcases, hotels & eating out all the time doesn’t excite me. Why we RV’ing! Husband has wanted to take me to Italy. I’m 100% Italian. We visited Australia twice and loved it. Beautiful & people are so incredibly nice. Had friends that we RV’d with on a 6 week trip. Only way I’ll do either trip is using our airline miles (that we’ve had forever, saving them for those trips) for a business class seat.

Like most of us who own an RV, there is just too much to see right here in the good ole USA. Have no interest in going back over seas where they actually hate American’s! We all need to keep our money and hearts here!

Optimism, hope, silver lining, it can only get better, etcetera. If you only see dark and dire times ahead what sort of life would we live?

We used to regularly visit family in Canada such that while it is international, we don’t really think of it that way.
Now, If you were to ask if we plan some “Non-RV” travel, that answer would be NO.

Yep, same for us.

You are asking this of people that have invested heavily in vehicles designed to travel Americas highways? Where did you find a picture of a Kodak Instamatic?

Traveling to Canada or Mexico is considered international I believe. I have always wanted to do the trans-Canada railway. I would love to visit Australia, and go back to Japan. Yes, there is still much of America to see, and yet….

We’re heading to Mexico next year. We cancelled our plans to the Caribbeans because of all the restrictions involved. We will likely go to Canada sometime soon because we have friends we haven’t seen for a while.

Mongolia, Taiwan, Korea, Japan. Then off to Spain, maybe for good.

We are headed to Mexico for a “destination” wedding — why do people do such a thing (he asked rhetorically)? — in February. We also plan to replace our current (and first) RV in the next few months. Once that is accomplished, then we’ll take it to Alaska with numerous stops and plenty of exploring in Canada, although the timing is unclear.

After being fully vaccinated, the wife and I had had enough of being locked down. We found resorts in Jamaica were taking extreme caution in regards to COVID-19. We spent a week at the resort with around 50% capacity and it was great!
