Thanks, Durian. I was going to start a thread about this tonight, glad you did.
My plans have had me arriving in China in October. Three or four weeks ago my thoughts were: "seven months until then, either the situation will have stabilized by then, or the virus will have gone global, in which case travel shouldn't make much difference"
Now, of course, the second outcome seems to have arrived in a rapid manner.
In around 10-14 days I was supposed to arrive in Milan (coming from Germany/Switz.) and then visit all the WHS between there and Venice (continuing on into Eastern Europe.) Now that doesn't seem like a good idea, and I am trying to come up with another plan. I would still like to see some Italian WHS, especially Venice, and this trip will probably be my only opportunity. Right now, I am thinking about going straight through from Switzerland to Florence by rail, skipping the all Sites in Lombardy (I wasn't going to be able get a ticket to the Last Supper anyway) and traveling to Venice mostly along the Adriatic coast.
Anyone have any thoughts about this?
In fact, my plans are being reworked more slowly than I would like because I have been dealing with a case of "regular flu" for the past week. For a time, I thought I might have had Covid-19 myself, even though I had not been very close to any outbreak clusters recently. However, I now belive that is not the case, which is a relief as I would not want to be responsible for spreading it around.
Then the case of China in October will have to be reconsidered as well....
Here's wishing all of you good health!
