looking forward to a vaccine that will hopefully put this virus to rest.

Before this pandemic, my wife and I traveled to several countries. Thank goodness we were already home and not stuck in another country - that would've been a nightmare to say the least.

When the coast is clear we'll be looking forward to future trips.

Some of the countries we've been to:

Indonesia - Surubaya, Bali, and Jakarta.
DR - Punta Cana
Bahamas - Nassau
Croatia - Drubrovnik
Greece - Corfu, Mykonos and Santorini.
Italy - Venice
Montenegro - Kotor
Belgium - Brugge
Germany - Hamburg
Iceland - Reykjavik
France - Paris and Lahavre
Netherlands - Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
England - Southampton and London.
St. Marten - Phillipsburg
St. Kitts and Nevins
St. John’s
St. Lucia
Barbados-Bridgetown


Like traveling too? any other countries you'd recommend?

There has never been a vaccine for any strain of the Corona Virus, don't hang your hat on one real soon for this one.

Look at this, and then ponder if we went a little too far in panic and allowing Statists to implement Draconian measures, like destroying the economies of the free world? The Hong Kong Flu killed 100 million, that's four times more then COVID, grasp that fact!

During the 1968 Hong Kong flu 400,000 Hippies packed in shoulder to shoulder at Woodstock, Riots in the Streets, the Democratic National Convention. No social distancing, no forced shelter in place orders, no shutting down the country, and tanking the economies. no making people wear masks like they stagecoach robbers, in fact, no disruption at all of normal life.

I left the Marine Corps in 1968 and joined the Chicago Police Dept. I can't remember anyone acting in the hysteria of panic like they are today. Not at all, people didn't even discuss it, and the media back then was at least semi-honest. Not today, the media is fear-mongering and have the world's populations cowering in fear, so much fear they are willingly giving up their freedoms to Statist Tyrants who promise safety, a safety you will never get from them! We have been had folks, and they are turning us all into willing little sheep!

Reflex's Cape Town would be a sweet destination... Cape Town - My hometown (beautiful pics sir! thank You).
My wife's a beach bunny, she said she'd like to hop back to the Grand Cayman Islands to share them with me.
When our older kids graduated from high school she took them on trips, and other times with family and friends, but Grand Caymen's been her favorite destination.
That's a great list.

Is this thread being allowed to degenerate into another off topic COVID debate? Certainly hope not. Chazman's made his point elsewhere
I didn't previously tell everyone here that 1968 Hong Kong Flu killed four times more people worldwide than this Virus did, yet nothing shut down, no quarantines of the healthy, no closing of bars, businesses, no destruction to the economies at all. We have all been duped into panic mode and allowed Tyrannical Statists to turn our lives and countries upside down, why are you dismissing that fact? I lived through the Hong Kong Flu, which killed 30,000 more Americans than this virus, while we had 120 million fewer population in the U.S. making it's mortality rate much higher.

Yet, no panic no fear, no draconian edicts destroying the economy, life didn't skip a beat. Why are you so opposed to hearing those facts, why are you so intent on not hearing the truth?

I think I'll hang on to a bit of hope. Flu shot thus far have helped throughout the years so let's see how the scientists and researchers can help. I know it usually takes multiple years to create a vaccine but during this unprecedented time, I could only hope.

This virus, like most others, will have burned out with herd immunity if we allow it. The chances for a vaccine are, slim and none!
