Re: Travel in a post-Covid world - discuss

You’d have to think that air travel will be impacted for a good number of years.

I actually quite like the idea of the world seeming quite big again.

Probably quite lucky as vast majority of my friends and family are in Western Europe and thus are accessible. I’m sure it’s hard for others

A lot of what he says rings true.

I believe it can be done by the NHS in the UK, ie no cost. Probably de-transitioning too. No financial cost, perhaps.
