Putting off our China trip

Decided last night we are going to have to put off our China trip not because we’re scared of being sick with Corona virus but because we’re scared of being quarantine.

The idea of being locked in a room for 3 weeks when we arrive and not seeing the sites, or coming home and being forced to quarantine for 3 weeks to beyond scary to me. We have always felt just sitting on a couch or stuck at home is the worst thing for us. So a delay to September is planned. Luckily we can do this for only a $68 penalty each. Worth it to us. New trip to be planned to replace it soon.

  1. Sometimes heavy obstacles are challenging the joy of life. That’s why we should pick the ripe fruits around us and don’t let them rot… and live the moment. Easy to say 🙂

  3. You are being wise! Life is all about rolling with the punches and riding the waves of change and unexpected circumstances. You are simply adapting, do it’s all good!

    1. Exactly, being stuck doing nothing on an epic trip would be so heartbreaking

      1. If you go in the Spring – say May – you could do a side trip to Lhasa, Tibet. It is well worth seeing. If you decide to go there email me and I’ll tell you how we got there. …It wasn’t easy.

      2. Oh. That sound wonderful. I will save this, but looks like they won’t let us go until September.

      3. September would be a good time. We went in October and were still able to go to Tibet. Lhasa closes up for the winter around late October. October wasn’t the best of time of year because there are a lot of Chinese people travelling at that time. Nevertheless, we saw a lot and it was just the two of us.

  7. I was thinking about canceling my trip through Shanghai and Delta did it for me. No flights to China on Delta from February 6 until at least April 30.

    1. Wow, we tried to cancel with air Canada fix we bought thru Priceline and honestly they said, well why would you want to cancel? We have heard nothing about this flu, you will have to call our management. We did the next day and got the deal of $68.

    1. It is better who wants to be stuck not seeing any of the sites, because they are closed, we heard many sites are closed right now. So maybe September, but searching now for a replacement trip

  13. Do not blame you. They shouldn’t even charge a cancellation fee when China is on the do not travel list at the moment.

  16. That’s too bad! But I think it was the right call. Quarantine would be very anticlimactic, and getting the virus even more so. China will still be there in September 🙂

  18. I suppose in addition to spreading the pandemic, all over the world, the Chinese populace is against foreigners, due to the government’s false propaganda against the West.
