Anyone know what EasyJet are doing to get us back to the UK ? The island is in lock down so I can’t imagine arrivals are welcome. On that basis , a lot of empty aircraft will be needed.

If I'd gone as planned on the trip this weekend, I'd have been stranded in either Moldova or the Ukraine! :shock: :D

Not when I came “ Down “ And why not after that winter. Even your lot moaning you can’t plough.

All bars and restaurants closed . Total lock down .

Pity your Bulldog is not parked here . Would offer to ferry it back

Plenty of supermarkets selling huge quantities of booze and grub; you don't need bars and restaurants.
I speak from experience (Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise); first thing I do when I get there is hunt for the nearest place I can buy vino.

Even they are only letting you in one at a time. Just sent the wife out for a bottle of Cava. Big fines tomorrow if you go out in pairs.
Deadly hush about the place.

That's what I'm trying to do and the bright side for me is I can go fly without contacting any other human being, providing the petrol station permits paying at pump. Not sure that it does though. :? I'll check that out tomorrow and maybe stock up. :D
