Travelling to Zante After the Travel Ban…What to expect

We booked a last minute trip to Zante after we heard that restrictions for quarantine were lifted in Greece. From our own research it appeared that Greece have managed well with Covid with only 4000ish cases and 200ish deaths (mostly on the mainland).  We were a little apprehensive of what to expect in terms of health checks and covid safety and so thought we would share our experiences to inform others.

Travelling with Limited Mobility – yes it is possible!

I have a chronic knee condition which is getting progressively worse, especially so over the past few years.  This means that I struggle to walk far at all and although some days are better than others on a bad day every step causes really bad pain.  Despite this I have not let this stop me travelling which we love; just because I am limited on what I can do doesn’t mean it’s impossible!  I have had people ask how I manage to travel so much despite my condition and therefore I decided to write this post in order to help others who may want to travel but feel their disability is a barrier.   Below is my step by step guide about how I manage to plan our travels.

New Year Switzerland Trip Planning 2017/2018

As I had a birthday coming up and it was also New Year we decided to have a scout around on skyscanner.net and look for decent priced flights for that period to somewhere which could be fun.  We came up with Easyjet flights to Switzerland; we had never been there and thought how lovely it would be around the Christmas and New Year period.   The flights we booked allowed for 6 nights there which should be plenty of time to explore; however we didn’t want to spend 6 nights in Geneva so decided to book 2 nights in Geneva and have a think about where to go after that.

Honeymoon Planning for April 2017

So after 11 years together we finally decided to tie the knot and spent quite some time trying to decide where to go for our honeymoon as we wanted to make it a trip of a lifetime.  We had to weigh up what we could afford with what would be our dream holiday and decided on a 3 week break.  Our initial list looked something like this:

  • Hawaii
  • Las Vegas
  • Cuba
  • Tahiti – Bora Bora

Change of Plan…Phuket here we come!

Ok so with everything set for our trip to Cambodia; hotels reserved, transfers booked we were informed by Air China that they had cancelled the 2nd leg of our flight from Beijing to Siem Reap.  There were no alternatives either as Air China for whatever reason have pulled out of Cambodia.

Cambodia here we come! – Planning our trip

Last year Nigel’s eldest Daughter decided to move to Cambodia to teach English and we have been looking since for a good deal on flights so that we can go and visit her.  Finally after lots of searching we saw a post on http://www.holidaypirates.com advertising flights to Cambodia in October 2016 for approximately £350 each.  She is staying in Siem Reap and after some fiddling around with dates we managed to secure flights from London Heathrow to Siem Reap with Air China for £365 each for a two week break.
