Mid October for a long weekend. Girls trip away for a special birthday.

Booked for Iceland but if their quarantine rules are still in situ there is no point flying out. (test on arrival, quarantine in hotel room until a second test 5 days later).

Spain is likely still out? Portugal maybe?
Italy might he okay?
Flights from Northern England so Manchester, Leeds Bradford, East Midlands, Liverpool..

Thanks

I just got back from Lake Como and it was divine. Really quiet, sunny and felt safe.

I would stay in the U.K. - London maybe, less busy than normal (aka less expensive)

I went to Venice this summer and it was half empty, not jam packed as usual, and it felt very safe. I'd recommend it.

Cyprus, but you would need a test before you go.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Venice has been in my mind actually - but for a romantic break with DH - found some cheap flights for November.

Cyprus would be lush - but it's too long a flight for a weekend. I'm thinking 3 hours max ideally.

The UK might have to be our option and do a fancy belated birthday trip next year.

For a weekend I'd probably stay in the UK. Just book a nice country house hotel with a spa - that would be lovely.

I know it’s going to cost more but as it’s roulette at the moment you may be better off booking at very last minute break - somewhere that looks a good bet early Sept Sod’s law might be a no go in 6 weeks time.

Gibraltar? Although their numbers of new cases were causing concern a couple of weeks ago and speculation about going on the quarantine list but seems quiet on that front again for now.

Its a hard call with Iceland but restrictions could ease up again by the end of the month. Do you have a cut-off point for changing your plans? If not, I'd wait a few more weeks.
