Polish museums and monuments will be closed for at least two weeks; there will be also check points at all the border crossings

I had to cancel my trip to China in April, but still have tickets to Edinburgh... we'll see...

Timing is always everything, isn't it?

I finally arrived in Berlin last night, 13 March. As of 14 March, everything here is closed, all museums on Museum Island, Reichstag, Potsdam Palaces, etc. I suppose I will go out to Potsdam at some point just for the gardens, and count that as a Site visit.

Czechia was supposed to be next, but that border is now mostly closed.

And now two non-virus-related, but really annoying, logistical problems have cropped up, so I have no idea what will happen over the next few weeks. I think I should just find some nice, dark cave somewhere, and just live there for a few months!

All buildings closed until further notice, but the park and gardens are still accessible.

Honestly not much point traveling at the moment, try as you may the daily visa requirement changes, flight disruptions and quarantine threats make it an anxious and less fun activity.

I'm lucky to tick off 2 WHS this month.

Also no point traveling to New Zealand after tonight unless you enjoy a 14d isolation period.

Yes, the fee is waived until 31 December 2020, but only at three parks: Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Kakadu, and Booderee. Visitors would still need to book a park pass, at no cost, from the individual park websites.
