Travelling in difficult times

As we are all well aware, the last 18 months have been a very difficult time to travel, due to the almost worldwide Covid restrictions.

Lockdowns, mask mandates, entry and testing requirements and now vaccine passports have all played on the mind of every traveller when deciding where, when, how – and ultimately whether – to travel.

However, whilst it is undeniably difficult at the moment to enjoy a worthwhile travel experience, it is not impossible.

Over the last 18 months, I have enjoyed my freedom in Tanzania, Costa Rica, Florida, Sweden, Denmark, Slovenia and Hungary, as well as enjoying my home country of Austria during the brief respite from restrictions last summer.

Along the way, I have narrowly escaped lockdowns and border closures in no less than 5 countries, some by mere minutes.

I will, of course, relate these experiences in the following articles and I am certain that there is plenty more fun to be had.

Welcome to Rebel Flying

Welcome to Rebel Flying, a travel blog dedicated to open and honest discussion of any and all travel related topics.

I am The Bouncer, a semi-retired man with a lifelong love of travel, in particular escaping cold European winters in search of some winter sun.

It is no secret that I have continued to travel throughout this difficult time and fully intend to continue doing so, despite the difficulties posed by Covid restrictions.

Over the coming days, I will be updating the site with my own travel experiences, as well as inviting full and frank discussion on the forums, which will shortly be activated.

I am well aware that life has not been easy for dedicated travellers over the last couple of years and hope to offer some useful tips, as well as inviting you to share your own experiences, tips and any questions you may have.

Happy reading and happy travelling.
