Hopefully everything has opened up by late October this year.
I booked flights to America

Just 2 or so weeks, Honolulu (Boise State vs Hawaii), Seattle, Boise (UNLV vs Boise State) and potentially Yellowstone.

This all assuming

1) The borders are open
2) QANTAS is flying
3) No changes to the college football season.
Hope it does open by then for your sake but I’d highly doubt it.

Jan is the earliest it will happen IMO

Got 2 year credits (after I cancelled my April trip) so it better be fine by at the latest mid next year so I can go late next year

Modern cities are all the same. If you want big modern city its not new york you go to. Its shanghai or tokyo. New york is just a smaller version of them. Although new york has movie history locations for us western people.
We'll have to agree to disagree then. But as I said before, it's horses for courses. If you're not a city person (in terms of travel) then obviously you'll have a different take than those who do see differences between cities. We each enjoy what we enjoy.

Fair enough. I am a city person by the way. Just not a modern city person where all you see is skyscrappers, street lights, grid roads and minimalist entertainment areas.

Got the cancel anytime travel insurance. (So I spent like $80 more to ensure I get 75% back)

Only hotel ive even looked at thus far is Honolulu


And I have no idea on dates in pac-nw other than Oct 31 Boise.

Have a mate who lives in Seattle so I might see if I can crash there, and we might go on a road trip to Boise.

At least you have travel insurance

Unfortunately i think you are going to be struggling to be able to fly then. But fingers crossed for you anyway

Doesnt phase me if I cant fly. Ill just go somewhere else asap.

Only did USA because there was a good sale on.

Would much rather do India and/or Sri Lanka.

Though, Iran is high on my to do list and Id love to go there before the Arab Cold War goes hot.

Highly recommend it. Iran is stunning and a really top place to visit
Someone I work with visited Iran in 2016. Gave it the big thumbs up. Of course, now when she wants to travel to the US (like she did last year), the process isn't as simple as jump onto the ESTA site, fill out the form, pay your small fee and Bob's your uncle.

Almost certainly all of the US will be open by Oct, and probably much sooner. Well before the election.

The Q is - when will the Oz govt let you fly out?

UA is currently still flying between SFO and SYD.

No the Aus government definately will not let you fly out unless a vaccine is available and the probability of that by october is virtually zero.

Except if you are an Australia citizen with permanent residency in another country/dual passport holder. Then you can fly out.

Which probably doesn't apply to most posters on this thread.

This is true. But if you want to get back into australia you will need to do a 2 week quarantine coming out of your annual leave.

Heh, yes. And if you want to visit a western state another 2 weeks home Q, currently.

But I think these Q requirements will be lifted by this Jun/Jul. Operation successful but patient died, if you get my drift...
