While we can't go Italy, there's this: Lego's 9,036-piece replica of Rome's Colosseum is the toy company's largest set ever. | Frommer's

In 1972, at age 16, I went in my first solo international trip with a copy of Europe on $5 a Day. What a godsend! For lodging and food it was indispensable and highly reliable. Please express my appreciation to Mr. Frommer.
yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
questions: have you heard feed back from your writers or locals in countries who are restricting travelers from the USA, commenting on how 'wonderful' it is that there are no tourists? we might need a list of countries who allow USA travelers and who might WANT them, as well.
Hmmm, Maybe the $29.00 flight? No pressure.
after 4 months of no travel, have you heard from other full time travelers, if they worry it will be difficult to return to the life of a travelers? Motivation suffers from the inactivity of quarntine.
question on NYC not in your tour book. Pauline, you may be the expert on museums and wonder if you know of any in NYC that would include the names/locations of neighboroods in the late 1800's to perhaps 1910?
Where ill be live streaming every Resident Evil game and their entirety in order as the story is told!! and after each game is completed, it will have its own in-depth video https://web.facebook.com/MarvelTType/
Has anybody done virtual traveling while staying indoors? I did via travel shows on TV and on my computer. I'm glad we have the technology to do this, but its not exactly like being there.
Interesting reading for those who want to travel in the future. Looks like hard times ahead.
is any travel group or site keeping track of WHEN each country will allow travelers to return? particularly USA travelers........there are new posts on Italian sites claiming there are NO restrictions yet the link to the source is 'not found' '.....
