It's actually not bad in the UK now - vaccination rate is very high, cases and deaths are low and dropping further even as we're unlocking. But travel to Chile is going to be off the cards for a long time for us. This summer, there's maybe 8 countries in the world that we'll be able to travel to without needing a long quarantine on returnI am sorry that you can't leave the UK. I hear things are terrible in UK, FR, and GER. Would love to have someone join me.
Hi Jimtransition what are your thoughts if you have your vaccine passport in hand?Sadly, I wouldn't count on anyone being allowed into Chile without quarantine this summer. Currently borders are shut to non residents and whilst their cases are dropping it's hard to say if things will improve fast enough. I have instructed in Portillo for the last 10 years, so really want to be there, but looking at other opportunities at the moment
I am not sure how much it will help, I think that eventually vaccine passports will make travel easier, but it's just how quickly it can all get set up. I suspect entry into Chile will still require quarantine this summer, and lots of countries will require quarantine on return as well. Would be very very happy to be proved wrong though.Hi Jimtransition what are your thoughts if you have your vaccine passport in hand?
Britain's most southerly latitude is farther north than anywhere in the contiguous 48 states in the USA. Just how north do you want to be? I think what you probably need is some elevation.There are times that I wish I lived in a country with a more northerly latitude (and a decent hill or two)
A Saintsman from the UK, you a Southampton fan?Seeing how Chile is on the US State Department's "Do Not Travel" list I don't think anyone's heading to Chile any time soon. @dovski - Mt Hood sounds great, but I don't think I'll be allowed into the States anytime soon, vaccine passport or otherwise.

Really, it might be more about the Rockies and the winds, not the Gulf Stream. Maybe.I think you mean the Gulf Stream!
