I know this is a super weird time to be thinking about this, but has anyone traveled or taken a vacation recently?

I’ve been getting a ton of super cheap airfare promotions in my inbox lately and I’m really tempted to go somewhere. However, with the patchwork of restrictions across the country and so many attractions/restaurants/businesses being closed, I don’t know if it would even be worth it to go.

We are heading out to the Seattle area late June to visit family. But that’s it until possibly Thanksgiving. I had 2 conferences this summer, in July and August, both cancelled. And we were going to Africa mid-September to mid-Oct. We haven’t cancelled and the travel agent hasn’t cancelled but both are gearing up for a no go and a full scale delay until same time next year. Africa is only now really seeing the virus and it’s going to really sweep through. Our agent doesn’t think Sept will be safe and she suggested we delay.

We’re also getting the cheap flight offers and some are tempting. BUT, a little research shows few restaurants open, and NO museums or sports or anything to do. We’re passing and waiting. I’d be willing to travel IF there were activities and restaurants, otherwise no.
