Denmark – Not to Be

It feels like every suspense novel ever read, every film noir ever screened, this waiting to learn of what will be and will not be in our ongoing Covid saga.  This morning’s email made it official — the Rowan Tree Travel Fiber Adventure to Copenhagen and the Faroe Islands has been postponed – AGAIN.

The tour planners, Heather and Suzie, have carefully monitored EU travel requirements, health notices for specific stops along the way and they have even gone so far as to take a trip to Scotland to assess just how difficult international travel might be in these strange times.  (Suzie’s blog offers her travel musings along the way with an array of photos such that the reader can almost feel the crisp highland air.)  But in the end, with cases of the Delta variant on the rise in the US, the frequent testing points mandated while traveling, the uncertainty surrounding quarantine procedures in situ for anyone testing positive, and time delays required for laying low upon arrival, even when healthy, all became just too many variables to manage.  The fun of adventure and exploration lost to the stress of pandemic travel.  So I am no longer counting the days and will stay Minnesota bound.

  1. I wish I could like this post, but I know you’re disappointed. Maybe not surprised but definitely disappointed. I’m sorry to hear that the trip was postponed again but geez this new variant is scary so I’m glad you and the tour folks are playing it safe. Hoping it’s a go at some point for you in the future!

  2. I am so sorry to read this. We will travel again but it feels so out of reach right now. Guess we will spend our fall and winter knitting for those future trips.
