Passport Canada is Tone Deaf.

So recently on Twitter, Passport Canada sent out a tweet urging citizens who are planning a winter vacation to renew their passports. Considering all the travel bans and restrictions, I can't help but feel the Govt is mocking us. Unless of course your home straddles the border, then you might need to renew it to go from your living room to your kitchen.

Now I'm back in Alberta, Canada..

I will be in Ontario next week, and considering going to Asia or Australia for a month..

So sorry if YOU choose to stay at home in FEAR. But most people are living their lives.. and with fewer people going to these places, it's great. No lineups. :p

I bet you're one of those guys who wear your fear every time you leave the house.

You can travel. We are going to Barbados in January. There are protocols for entry into most countries but if you follow them you can travel.

@B00Mer Australia has shutdown to incoming foreign visitors until at least sometime in late 2021.

I just did 2 weeks quarantine upon arrival from Europe recently. Did you end up staying home for 2 weeks after coming back from Mexico?

Jesus, relax dude. I'm simply making fun of the fact that a govt organ is reminding people to renew their passports while the Govt is telling Canadians they may have issues coming back.

No I'm essential .. I don't have to quarantine.

Besides, I had COVID-19 on March 3rd.. after visiting Miami (...and hitting the bars) and then Orlando's Walt Disney World. I have had 2 serology tests to verify antibody levels since then spaced out.

I also know when I have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, the bottom of my lungs will burn inside (irritation) for 2 days. Doctors say I was in contact, body is fighting off the virus again, which builds up more antibodies.

Probably in Laredo, TX one of the girls grinding on me.. who knows.. maybe at the Truck Stop where truckers come from all over North America.

It's kind'a funny, but for some reason, people still need to eat during this Pandemic.

I'm so relaxed, if you meet me you would think I slugged a bottle of Valium back and a 2/4 of beer 😂

@B00Mer Aha. I also had the CCP Virus but from the end of January and fought it off for 10 days. Caught it in Cuba from my brother who I rendezvoused with; he got it from his best mate. Positive antibody tests confirmed.

Cuba sounds nice 🌴🌞

Forget Cuba. Mingle with the locals and learn a bit of the language; far more rewarding.

I'm pretty conversant with the language, both my ex-wives are hispanic..

I love the old cars and historic architecture in Cuba, that what I want to see.

I'll give you the old cars, but many places in South America have the architectural aspect too.

If you speak Spanish, then Cuba is a whole lot better in my experience. In my case, I tend to accidentally mix in Italian words with a very vague Colombian accent which they apparently found charming, considering I was surrounded by loud Canadians or rude Russians.

A few US dollar bills for tips and at least a bit of Spanish gets you so much more there than most other tourists.

But I still say other Latin American countries are far more interesting and the freedom, at least for me, is a huge factor
