My recent experience, EasyJet will contact you exactly 2 weeks before you fly and try and do everything in their power to get you to rebook with them or take vouchers.

Was meant to be in Lake Como/Milan in April. Lost hotel money and after 7 weeks got full refund off EasyJet. I bombarded them with twitter DMs around 20 times a day for the 7 weeks until they eventually replied and then it only took 3 days to get my money back.
Luckily hadn’t booked anything for summer and think the best case for us would be getting to Elie or the East Neuk for a few days later in summer. As @1875 says, we live in a beautiful country which is going to need picking up and put back on its feet. If me spending some money in our hospitality industry can make even a tiny contribution to its survival I think it’s a good thing to do.
Had plans for a possible big birthday trip to either South Africa or USA next summer but considering shelving this until the world stops self destructing.

I have never been further north than Dingwall either, its on my list.
I remember the wife asking me why there was sand pits at the side of the road at the Berriedale Braes!
Watch out for artics coming round the hairpin bends.
Done a daytrip from John O'Groats to Orkney which was quite interesting.

Had my trip to Amsterdam in March postponed until September (not convinced that will happen either).
Had a week in Orkney planned in July, but ferry company cancelled the sailing, refunds from ferry & accommodation no problem.

We have provisionally booked a wee self catering cottage for that week in July, in the East Neuk of Fife, no big deal if it gets bumped (free cancellation) and easy to to pack & go if it is a goer.

Was meant to be a staycation for me and my lot this year - a week near Skye, first week of the school holidays, but we’ll not be in phase 3 by then so cancelled till another time.

Had a 1000mile self supported cycle round Scotland lined up in just over a weeks time (technically a holiday away from everything - an extreme self isolation in itself) but that’s put off to next year.

A weekend trip to see Hibs win the Scottish cup in May postponed to late 2020 early 2021.

Will look up North in October school holidays.

Waiting for dry period up in the wilds, proper social distancing with my tent, sleeping bag, kettle, porridge, honey, hip flask, night stars and my wee mates the midges. Fancy the Isle of Eigg again, maybe Rum. My idea of heaven.
Na Daddy, You've got it all wrong! What you want to do is fly with a plane full of passengers to one of the holiday resorts in Spain. Get pissed and lie about in the sun till you're fried through. Two weeks and you'll be a new man. Enjoy.

Love just disappearing for a few days up the hills, get into trouble for saying two to three days and extending it by three to four days. No phones, the only thing I need is scenery, solitude and my camping necessities. Not for everybody, but highly recommend it. Try a night up the Pentlands, then spread your wings up north. The only rules, leave things as you find it.

I am in Oban for a week in early August. I did suggest meeting with hibbiemacfie who lives up that way, but he was angling for me to buy him beers, talk about local hospitality. ;))

I am going with another 17 close family members (spread over 4 chalets and caravans), looking forward to it, although I doubt solitude will come into that trip, best I might get is reading a book on the porch before everyone wakes up!

But I am still looking to go to Spain when its safe, I would rather be there than here truth be told and I love Scotland.

I went campin tae Oban wi my family when I was 7 years old and had £1 tae last me the week. I spent 14/6 on a torch and my old man went fuckin tonto 😂. I thought I could buy the torch and still have a shilling a day and widnae need one the last day as we wid be drivin hame. My Maw saw the funny side when I explained my logic.😊

I think I'm going tae have a long weekend in Bournemouth at the beach :giggley:

Actually nah, have a few wild camping weekends and Munro climbing in some wild and lonely places in Scotland, that will dae for me. As far off the tourist trail as possible. If thousands of other people want tae be somewhere, I want tae be exactly somewhere else

100_1147.JPG Disnae get much wilder and lonelier than this place, my wee one man tent in the wilds of Rannoch Moor in 2017. Scotland is an amazing place :grinning-smiley-045: 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Booked to go to Krakow with Easyjet in mid August.The return flight is showing as "sold out".Easyjet are saying that's either because the flight is sold out or in case it may have to be cancelled.So, I'm uncertain as to whether I'll be there or not.
