Having spent another stressful day travelling to Portugal I have decided that our next visit …planned for October …is not going to happen.

The double vaccine is allowed for the EU but not the Brits…that’s a Brexit political decision.This has not been helped by the UK government irritating Portugal with some illogical use of their red-amber-green scheme.

The expense and requirements make travelling an experience that is not enjoyable…and that’s what visits should be.Easy to see why half empty planes are coming to Portugal…we will be joining those holidaying in the UK.

I will be sharing my views on social media when I return to the UK.

If Portugal wants the UK visitors then they should accept the double vaccination.For sure the virus is not bothered whether you are in or out of the EU.
