Hello fellow travelers!
I want to take a trip in the middle of the year, but due to COVID-19 I´m not really sure where.
If you have traveled recently I want to hear your experiences to give me an idea and make up my mind.

Thank you! :)

I'm not sure there are any useful suggestions to make - everything is so uncertain due to the pandemic, and international travel is even more uncertain because of differences in countries rolling out vaccines, recognition of vaccine passports, and variations in infection rates ranging from normal to armageddon.

By the middle of the year I would still not plan on international travel.

Domestically, you will know better than us the situation in Mexico, and from there it depends on how your government has done at getting in the queue for vaccines.

There are lots of risks in travelling this year. Will things reopen? Will an outbreak cause new restrictions? Will you get covid? Will your insurance cover it? Will you get stranded by closures elsewhere?

There are quite a few places around the globe that are open, and there might be more as the year progresses. But, as Andy notes, traveling can be problemmatic and certainly won't be like it was before the pandemic.

Rather than fewer restrictions, it appears that more are arriving each day. All you have to do is monitor the news. See this link as example:

Airlines are altering and canceling flights frequently as circumstances change. Two days ago KLM announced the suspension of it long-haul routes. But here's the latest:

Yes, there's the requirement for COVID-19 tests, usually within 48, 72 or 96 hours before departure. You have to show proof, either on paper or digitally. An example:

Some countries require a test before entering, while you're in the country and before leaving! Finding places to be tested, with quick results, can be daunting. The tests won't be cheap.

Some countries also require proof of medical insurance against COVID-19. Some also may require downloading an app to trace your whereabouts.

Once inside a country there's the potential to encounter different restrictions in cities and regions. Is indoor dining allowed? Are museums and other attractions open? Are transit routes operating or schedules reduced? Are there curfews?

Yes, you still can travel, even now. But it requires flexibility, a willingness to deal with the hassles, and money, particularly if you somehow become stranded. Travel isn't always easy, but now it takes more grit.

One more thing: I get a COVID-19 test shortly before and after each trip, including domestic road trips in the U.S., to make sure I'm not an asymptomatic carrier of the virus.

Hello,
As you know that vaccination has been or will start in all over the world. I refer you check that if the country you want to visit have done their vaccination then you can go there and also read that country's policy for travellers and travelling guide.

Hi! I really wait to start traveling again. But because of the Covid, all the trips are so unpredictable. You should probably check the sources about which borders are opened to your country and what is the situation there for now.

South Korea, Japan and of course Ireland

How Much it cost to visit South Korea and what is the best time to visit?

Quoting cwites

How Much it cost to visit South Korea ... ?

It really does depend on where you're starting. It'll be much cheaper for someone in Japan to visit Sout Korea than for someone in Iceland.

Once there, it would depend on where you want to go, what you want to do and how luxurious you want it to be. Not knowing anything about your travelling style, we can only look at average costs. The average cost per day spent by visitors is USD104. That includes USD29 per day for meals, USD14 per day transportation and USD105 per day for a couple in a hotel.
