Simply The Best & Worst: August 2021

4

August is done. The angry people writing on my blog are not. The top posts are below. It’s noteworthy that the negative posts round out the top 4, thus the title of the post.

  1. COVID Test for Return Travel Is Stupid

    Last March, I wrote “Describe Trump’s Travel Ban: It’s Stupid.” Today I use the word stupid again to describe the US’s requirement that travelers returning from abroad need to present a negative COVID test taken no more than 72 hours from the date of travel.
  2. Breakthrough Infections: Another Reason Not to Travel

    For those that have left their basement during COVID, don’t tell me your trip to Croatia and Tulum count as travel and that COVID requirements aren’t a big deal. That is not travel. That is child’s play.
  3. Don’t Route Via Panama

    Passengers on inbound, outbound, or transit flights who test positive for COVID-19 at the airport will be required to quarantine at a MINSA-designated hotel/hospital for 14 days.
  4. Kayak Answers, “Can I Travel to…?”

    It’s becoming silly to write about trips that I won’t be taking.
  5. Booked! Michigan v. Wisconsin

    Traveling domestically just to get off the island is not my idea of a good time. That does not include seeing my feckless Wolverines. This year I am going to Madison, Wisconsin to lose again.
  6. Guns & Butter: Auckland Travel Guide (Not City Centre Edition)

    I had one day in Auckland to do and see as much as I could. Mission accomplished.
  7. Waimauku: Wine Tasting in Auckland

    I have gone all over the world to taste wine. One of the best experiences was in Waimauku, a small locality of Auckland.
