Spain is open to tourists since yesterday!

The first lot were Germans, destination Mallorca.


Now I just need to hire a Camel and get out of the sand-dunes to reach an Airport....

Tripoli - Airport destroyed by IDF

Misrata - Only active Airport in Libya

Malta - CLOSED

Tunis - 14 day quarantine or sleep on the floor in that shitty/filthy Transit Room they have.

Istambul - Option 1 (maybe the only option for the time being).

I need to check how the French & the Italians have it worked out. Rome or Paris to Barcelona could be another option.

Oooohhhh, if I only I could solve the Northbound and Southbound train thing, I think I could answer that.
