Travel from UK to Italy during COVID-19 pandemic

This blog is a bit different from all those I have written earlier. Traveling to the country on yellow list In June 2021 we had to go from UK to Italy; at that time Italy was on yellow travel list and only essential travel to those countries was allowed. Now, about a month later, some rules, for example, regarding self-isolation for double-jabbed travellers, have changed. However, the basics still are the same and I was thinking that this information may…

Tafraout

This is the next blog about our Morocco trip in 2020 during COVID lockdown. After visiting Agadir, Paradise Valley and Taroudant, we went to Tafraout to spent the rest, or at least the major remaining part, of our trip in Morocco until we get a chance to travel back home. Lockdown in Morocco Although we were in quarantine near Taroudant for two weeks and had a document allowing us to go outside, our arrival was not straight forward at all.…

Taroudant

After visiting Agadir and a nice walk in Paradise valley we continued our trip as planned to Moroccan city Taroudant. However, we had quite different plans in comparison with what we ended up with. First time in our lives, we had to go to quarantine due to COVID lockdown. Good news is that we had booked very good comfortable (and expensive) guesthouse just a few miles from Taroudant city centre. It was booked for three nights, however we spent there…

Plymouth

Plymouth is a coastal city located on the South coast of England between Devon and Cornwall. It has a population of about 260 thousand people being relatively small city; it got city status in 1928. We decided to visit Plymouth because of two major reasons - Plymouth Gin Distillery and National Marine Aquarium. I shall say straight away that as it appeared, Plymouth is even nicer than we could imagine - it looked very clean and cosy, people we met…
