International travel in light of the coronavirus

Russia and Serbia are having their own "exercises" in response. Balkans might be the ground zero for world war again.

I don't think so, all the western balkans countries are commited to joining EU, and all committed to NATO with exception of Serbia.

Russia didn't interfere in the Balkans wars and there's no reason to believe they'd do anything overt, much less warlike to interfere in the state of affairs of non-EU Balkans now. We can argue about Russia being war-like, but interference in Ukraine and Georgia is far different from interference in the Balkans.

Keep in mind some of the literal borders of Balkans countries were drawn up by the US and NATO.

You should watch some videos from Peter Zeihan regarding Russia's demographic situation. Key points

-Russias population is in decline and is going to massively restrict soldier supply
-Russias current geography is indefensible from the West due to no natural borders and the border being enormous
-Russia must take points in Eastern Europe in order to shorten it's border to be manageable with its reduced soldier count

If you're interested I'll dig up the video it's pretty interesting

There's some truth to this but remember, he's a Stratfor trained guy and Friedman is too, that group has it out for Russia. Russia's demographics are still better than the West's and China's even. Also, who is invading anyone at this point? I don't see it happening but maybe after major tech innovation or nuclear weapons have already been used.

I've always like Zeihan, but as a materialist (like most of these analysts) they fail to recognize how resources mean nothing if you don't have a unified nation. Yes Peter, we can mess this up, by corroding from within. It's odd they rarely talk about that, and I think it is because they can't pinpoint that the downfall is American losing its faith and trust in God, so they take for granted that "someone will figure it out" - in that sense he is a libertarian "progressive".

I have a trip booked for Albania this weekend but I am thinking of changing it or delaying it.

I don't know how relaxed I can feel knowing that I'll have to get a test to return and then two more tests in quarantine on arrival.

Maybe it's worth it as a break from the evil UK though. But I don't look at Albania as a place free from all this. It's just at a less advanced stage of this madness.

But the thing that makes me want to leave is this knowledge that maybe this will be my last chance? I could slip this trip in before they get the vax passports through and while testing is still an option.

I'd go because it's probably a good place to get a vax passport without getting the jab....if you know what I mean.

I am not planning permanent expatriation, so it doesn't really work as a justification. If I were to move there permanently, I guess that would make sense.

I don't know where you live but in the US as an example, foreign vaccine passports are accepted. Might have to get an official translation though.

Vaccine passports will largely be used to travel outside of the country you got it.

That’s hilarious. Literally 6 weeks ago you couldn’t even get a beer in Bogota because they were locked down. Now no PCR test needed to enter. OK.
That's how unpredictable it is. I noticed Mexico was seen as Walhallah just 4 weeks ago here in the NL. Everyone who wanted to travel far went there. Now they're on the ''orange'' list which means don't fly unless necessary and all kind of measures to get back. It's really hard to plan something ahead now. Any people here traveling far and have tips to share? For example when you did local flights did they require a new test from you? That's a thing to take into account too if you want to do a trip and have flights within the country.

Feel you bro. I don't think they're gonna be so quick with the solo vaccine requirement. I do think that testing will be possible for at least the coming year, but over time they'll surely step by step take it to vaccine only. That being said the countries you can go to vary by the day... so while we know they'll probably lock it down in autumn, it is possible that things will open up more in the summer. How's Albania locally now? Being able to fly there easily doesn't mean that their local life isn't shut down at least partly.

It's great here. The info on the ukgovt website made it sound strict. 10 pm curfew and masks mandatory indoors and out. The reality of life here is that almost nobody wears a mask. And I am never asked to wear one.

Life here feels calm and relaxed and well...normal.

As for the curfew, I'm not a night owl anyway but it's hardly like there are sirens at 10pm to herd everyone back home.

It looks to me like Albania are officially looking like they have strict covid rules to try to look good on the world stage. Japan is doing something similar. These are countries that are of less interest to the globalist leaders at this point. As long as they think every country in the world is going along with the plan, and the ones they have direct influence over are doing so fully, I imagine they will feel quite content.

Thinking back to the UK...the covid Marshalls outside, the lines in the supermarket, everyone masked and policing one another. You really see how insane it is when you gain some distance. You can almost forget about covid here. Partly I probably have some type of wanderlust though and also the distraction of travel has taken me away from doom scrolling all day long. But there is a palpable difference in atmosphere here that's for sure.

Of course I have forced myself into a position where I will need a test now but considering I will maybe never travel again after this I guess that was the deal I made. One last bite of freedom before I go back to the prison camp.

Good to hear brother. I wish you a fantastic time there. It's a good observation that there will probably always be countries that somewhat less strong in the clutches of the elite. Hence I'm hopeful that there will be some opportunities in the future.

There were rumblings that the UK too could start demanding vaccines leave the island...

I'm currently outside the UK, and I want to go back for September, but I for sure don't want to get mousetrapped in Oceana.

I can't find any relating news reports... does anyone have any info?

Probably will take them longer than September and October.
