It's hard if you love traveling and you can't travel :-)

As my username indicates, I have been bitten by a travel bug. But it's kind of hard to do right now with what's going on in the world. So here I am on the forum checking out different deals for now and in the future.

Welcome travelbugbite. There's always lots of local places that would be worth discovering...sometimes right under our noses.

If you live close to a major urban center in canada, chris myden's websites are something you need to know about:

i was a full time traveller before covid. i had spreadsheets to make sure i met the 153 day per year residency requirement in ontario for OHIP coverage, usually spending summers with my parents in toronto.

I drove to the USA in january 2021 to see my brother, and i am going back to the USA at the end of next week, but haven't been on a plane in 16 months. I am fully vaccinated and excited to get back to it, see you out there!

Welcome to RFD, @travelbugbite. During the pandemic my spouse I have been taking advantage of credit card promos and racking in the welcome bonuses. Mostly in the form of Aeroplan points or points that can be converted to Aeroplan. We will soon have enough to fly the whole family to Europe and back. Got a ton of hotel points too. Might as well make the most of the situation!
