I voted Canada, because it seems that this pandemic is here to stay for now. Canada's doing pretty well overall, so my next vacation might very well keep me inside of our national borders. Taiwan and Korea have been on my list of places to visit, so I've voted for that option as well. They are also doing quite well w/ the virus, so it seems these places might actually be possible to travel to before other places open up. I also voted for South America, because I've been itching to get back there.. I doubt I will be able to anytime soon though, as their numbers seem to be exploding.. @Synsensa If you travel to anywhere in Western Europe, you will find many people who speak English.. especially if you end up in a place like the Netherlands, where the locals speak English even better than us here in North America Even so, it's pretty easy to get around without speaking the local tongue these days, with the internet and all. A lot of these places want you to go there, even if you don't speak the language. The local shop and restaurant owners will love you for bringing your money there, they don't care you can't speak Thai or Spanish or whatever. I mean, some people might, but for me it's literally never been a problem.. and I've been to places where finding someone who speaks English can be a struggle. These days it's easy to get what you want by translating a question online or whatever. I also don't have time to learn a brand new language, but if that other language uses the same alphabet as English.. then all you gotta do is have a short phrase or word list, or just remember words like Pollo, carne, and cerveza, so you're not always googling everything when at a restaurant. A LOT of restaurants will also have English menus for you. Even when they don't, they want your business. Those that don't (have English menus) tend to be local owned family type restaurants. That's where you will usually find the best local food. It will also be cheaper.. and they will want your business whether you speak English or Klingon. Having said all that, I completely understand not feeling comfortable doing any of that and wanting to stick to English speaking countries only. We all have our own comforts, and there's no sense flying somewhere if you know you're not going to have a good time. As for me, I am basically sitting at home and have been since April or so.. I can't even remember anymore when this started tbh.. I'm always home.. and saving up my vacation time like a madman. Ours never expires, so I if I stay at home for 3 years, that will get me a crapload of vacation time.. the thing is that our managers are supposed to crack the whip when someone's accumulated more than 25 days and force them to take fridays off for the next 3 months or something.. but in practice this rarely happens in our unit. What I'm probably going to do is go on some grand trip early next year. I am not sure if it makes sense to travel anywhere this fall even... And that's another reason why I have South America on my list - The Canadian winter is their summer, so it'd be a good time to go. I want to hit up Patagonia again, and being so far south in the summer makes a lot more sense. If I went in the winter it'd be stupid cold and dark.
