This thread isn't just discussion of a global pandemic, it's a more focussed discussion of the EU's opening of its borders to citizens of a small number of countries, including Canada but excluding the US.

 

As you know, Her Majesty is also the Queen of Canada, and the two countries enjoy a very special relationship because of it. One result has been that travel between the two nations has been easier over the years than for citizens of other countries. Then came the pandemic and old travel policies went out the window. Now, with Brexit on the one hand and the EU's decision to allow Canadians to enter now, @TeeRick's question about Canada - UK travel seems quite in keeping with the thread.

 

Thank you for your response Fouremco,...However it was TeeRicks response that I was curious to learn from given that he/ she had made the original comment about HM.

Apologies Blackduck,59,...you are  quite right, my question was posed toward TeeRick, not yourself. 
TeeRick, perhaps for the purposes of clarity you would care to elaborate as to why you feel it necessary to bring HM the Queen into the debate about a global pandemic.

regards.

Please see Fouremco's response in post 97.  Stated perfectly.  I was not trying to say anything disrespectful about HM the Queen.  Or really anything at all about her.  Just brought up the question of travel between Commonwealth countries.  I was wondering because the UK is no longer under EU travel mandates or restrictions.

Cheers TeeRick.

Thankyou for taking the time to respond and to clarify that you meant no disrespect to The Queen.

Happy Independence Day to you, and all of our cousins in the US.

Unless you are on the list of 15 approved countries by the EU Council - and even then, check your own country’s regulations of traveling aboard and re-entry requirements:

I have seen speculation that Apex will start cruises from Barcelona after September 15th,  but Spain is not welcoming cruise ships.

Yeah, I just read Spain says NO cruise ships until Pandemic is over, no date is set. Forget Barcelona and other ports for quite some time. Next summer, Maybe.

The CDC still has a Level 3 Travel Advisory for Europe and until that changes many US citizens/residents shouldn't go to Europe because they may not have health insurance.

We are currently in Venice - enjoying the city without crowds.

 

Compared to the usual craziness, the narrow alleys seem deserted.

Just the typical spots have a few people gathering. 
Some people wear masks in the street, but it’s not mandatory.

It is in shops, churches, museums etc. and it is enforced - however, there’s not much need for enforcement. People actually follow the rules.

Actually most rules still apply until December 2020 as the UK is in a transition period for leaving.

It's a great show, but remember, though based on actual events, it is still a show and not a documentary.  Sometimes it's easy to forget and think it's ALL true

It never ceases to amaze me that so many people think shows or movies like this are completely factual ...

I just commented that I enjoyed watching the series.  I know it is not completely factual.  Nothing on TV, in Movies or in the Media is completely factual.  I personally am a fan of historical shows and historical fiction.  So why the comment?

Actually a lot of it is true!  Hard to believe but Roddy Llewellen was a scandal at the time.  The smogs of the 50s and early 60s. The Aberfan disaster etc.

Great series and very well done.
