The UK is putting in a traffic light system for countries as we ease out of lockdown.
And my favourites are all green-lighted for return:
Austria https://www.austria.info/en Barbados https://www.visitbarbados.org Croatia www.croatia.ie Germany https://www.germany.travel/en-mobile/index.html and Greece http://www.visitgreece.gr and https://athensattica.com are all go.
Out of quarantine
Translated that means returning travellers need not quarantine for 14 days.
I’m just glad Home Secretary Priti Patel finally listened to me.
You won’t have to be an amber gamblers either if you’re visiting a country on this list:
Australia, Belgium, Canada and Denmark France, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland and Spain.
The hit list
And there’s been more than a sprinkling of love from most of them… https://visitbelgium.com, https://visit-canada.ca, https://www.visitdenmark.com, https://about-france.com/visit-france.htm, http://www.italia.it/en/home.html, https://www.holland.com/global/tourism.htm, www.visitportugal.com, www.myswitzerland.com and https://www.spain.info/en_GB/ https://www.spain.info/en/informacion-practica/oficinas-turismo-embajadas/turismo-exterior/oficina_de_turismo_en_dublin.html.
Bad luck though if you’re stopped at red:
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, India, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, South Africa and the US.
With the last two turning my clown into a frown.
Having set in train all my trips this year around these countries I’m having to make do with North Berwick beach these past couple of months.
You see I don’t fancy much being one of half a million on Bournemouth beach.
Of course the beach is a Bajan’s dining room where the locals put up bars like we do brollies.
And where the flying fish jump out of the sea and onto your plate.
Fish of the day
There are many different varieties of cutters including liver, cheese, ham, egg and more.
Clubbing together: Club Barbados on the Platinum Coast
Or even easier are their fish cakes… do like a local and order a ‘bread and two’. On a bun.
The Bajans will be only too happy to show you how to cook up a treat…
And if you like it hot then here’s how they scare up a Pepper Pot… https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCUwplS8uhaieGiL_50XhJCg.
