    Certainly would be more comfortable if vaccinations are required. Here we have a vaccination passport required to enter certain premises and no big deal.

    Yesterday I flew internationally between 2 countries in Latin America.
    It was even more complicated than before. More papers, more forms and the forms were more complex.
    And I nearly did not fly.

    I want to the airport in Rio de janeiro 3 hours before, because I expected problems. Also I had 50K EUR cash so I wanted to report it.
    At baggage drop off was already a queue, so I rather went to report the cash to tax officer, who was 1 km away. He just told me that I must first put away my big bag before I report cash. He told me the reporting will be just few minutes.

    Ok, I went again 1km back to queue. I waited like 45 mins, before I want to some prescreening. They checked my covid insurance, PCR test, vaccine certificate, passport, apartment reservation, ticket and entry form to destination country. The woman saw a problem: the entry form started that my vaccine certificate was not validated.

    What was the problem? In some countries you must validate the certificate upfront nowadays. Great. I knew about it, but I was vaccinated in the country where I was going to. So I had the certificate from the destination country. They still need to verify their own certificate!

    I knew how the systems and people work. I knew humanity is already fked up with the IT retards who rule us. So yes, I was trying to validate the certificate from that country. I created 2 more profiles at the vaccination page. Once I tried to verify their own certificate 3 weeks ago. Then 2 weeks ago I tried to verify a vaccinacion certificate from Germany, that was given to me in Europe based on original certificate. Both requests which were absurd btw., are until now pending. Nobody was able to even understand or answer my surreal questions, whether I need to verify the vaccines in the country where I was given the jabs.

    But then I went to the airport and this woman stopped me. I waited 15 minutes and then she said ok. You can go. I finally made it to dropoff. The person checked the papers and stopped me again. She went to supervisor. The supervisor gave it a green light. But the person told me to go to another drop off queue. To another person. That person went again to supervisor. And then sent me with my bag directly to supervisor.

    Supervisor was old fat frog like woman. She again made photo of all my documents as all previous people. She called somewhere. And she said the final verdict. No. You can not fly. It says your vaccines are not validated. Also I was happy that I speak a bit Spanish, because no one spoke English.

    Ok, I had 75 minutes to gate closing. I just knew that I can not punch the frog.

    I wrote to one person in destination country if he can call to ministry of health, but it was already too late.
    I decided to fill up the entry form again as non-tourist. I had just few minutes to do something that is for maybe 30 mins. I somehow to manage to do it and hacked the system, because I also have SSN number of destination country, so I pretended I am a resident. So in the end it produced a QR code with validated vaccines and it was enough for the Frog, who was just closing the checkin.

    Yeah, so I had to sprint to the police, who was just 10 minutes counting the bills, 10 minutes staring a computer with windowsXP and 10 minutes printing me the paper. Then I run at security, where sweat by anger, I was suspicious, so they took down my shoes and checked my crotch. I run with my un-knotted shoelaces through stupid dutyfree shop almost hitting a mirror while trying to see a shortcut.

    Yes I made it to stupid gate right when they were calling me. They can not fly with my bag in, so that was my last hope.

    So... if you want to have a lot of fun, fly post-covid.

    I never considered to buy my boat or plane, but if this will not change, I will.

    I just think that being vaccinated is a good thing and the best thing to protect yourself and others. Albeit it is a personal decision and vary from person to person and circumstances, but vaccination is definitely a good thing for me.

    I'm sure this was in no way entertaining for you, but I had a great time reading it. That could have been a scene in a movie easily )))

    I recently traveled from a non-EU country via one EU country (transit) to another EU country by plane and had absolutely no problems with paperwork, vaccine certificates or anything else.

    But, I guess this is largely individual, depending both on the person checking your documents and the countries involved. Definitely not a great time to be traveling, especially if you are not prepared for the extra hassle.

    I am happy you were entertained. Soon this covid mixed with digitalisation of everything will entertain you personally.

    Because, yes, here is PART 2.

    After I spent 5 days in isolation, which would be another spin off itself, I was finally freed yday at 15:43.

    Or I thought so.

    My plan was to leave the capital and go to nature by domestic flight. You need PCR even to travel fully vaccinated in some countries, that is just a funny note.

    This time I did not even fake my PCR, because the bastards started really to put QR codes on it. So I got my PCR and went to bed for short sleep. At 23:30. My flight was/is next day at 6:00. I closed my eyes and woke up in horror. Here you do not need just PCR but also to fill some stupid document where you report travelling between regions. Yes no ****. You need a vaccine, PCR and filling a report everytimes you cross borders of counties.

    So I woke up and filled the document.

    The result was: "You are denied, because you came shortly before and you are in quarantene." Therefore I can not obtain the QR code that is needed for travel.

    So here it was again, some error. They provide a number, when I called there they work 8 -20. Awesome, it was midnight and flight at 6AM.

    I jumped on taxi and went to airport where I saw the Gestapo from ministry of health before. But at 1 AM nobody was at the airport. I called to the domestic helpline, where nobody speaks English. I was able to describe the problem. Then the guy told me he will connect me to someone else and hang up. I called again and they just told me to contact their gestapo, who was not at the airport.

    I did two things then. I always carry two passports and if you do not have two, you should. I filled the travel document with other passport and it went through, because it was not in the system as I thought. I also filled another travel document with homoglyph attack. My number of passport is something like 465435681, instead of it I filled in 46543568I. Then I called my graphician who changed 46543568I to 465435681. So if that document is not scanned nobody sees a problem. If is scanned, hopefully also not a problem.

    Now I went to baggage drop with my original passport and nobody recognised anything. Then I went to the guys who were checking specifically the travel document and showed them the other passport with fully valid travel document. It went through so I am waiting at the gate.

    At boarding I will have to show again the original passport. And after I land there will be police again and I will have to show them again the other passport.

    Have fun with travelling and have fun overall. This beautiful world will eat you soon alive.

    Didn't mean no disrespect and I am sorry to hear about your troubles.

    But, I have no intention of crawling up in my room and waiting for **** to hit the fan. Granted, the future is not looking bright, but as I enjoy traveling and visiting new countries, I have no plans to stop doing that.

    Don't be so sure that I am as naive as you seem to believe. I just choose to have a positive outlook on life and enjoy the present rather than spending every waking hour worrying about what may or may not happen in the future.

    It is not my troubles. I can not care less. I am not travelling for fun, those times are over. I am travelling to my property in mountains, where I want to set up isolated mansion out of this madness. Everything that is happening is just confirming that the world is in a free fall.
    Having a positive outlook and enjoying travelling is impossible. I really can not imagine a person that can enjoy faking all documents, just only because people are not able to make a sane control covid system. Faking all documents, even when all rules were followed.

    So please, do not tell me that you enjoy travelling like going to the airport with all tests and then going home, because the programmers can not tune the system and no one gives a fk. Nobody is masochistic to this level. And this is the travelling now.

    I really personally do not care. It may sound crazy, but I really care about the world. I feel your wishful thinking about "enjoying the travelling" and I can see what will happen once you will realize that those times are over. And how the human brain that wants to enjoy, enjoy and enjoy (as is written in the famous book Amusing ourselves to Death) will react, when the pleasure is denied, that is the question for thousand points now.

    Btw. I made it to the destination. Feel like watching german fecalporn with RZ. I made it through all checks, nobody in the end scanned anything. They even forgot to take my 1.5 litres water at security, because the system is even forgetting to enforce all nonsenses. But they forced me to take down my porous facemask and I had to wear the respirator. It was a deliberate decision of airlines. They also have now one toilet only for women on plane. I was thinking to be transgender. Also I can not stand now at the small space by bathroom stretching my legs, the dominatrix on board said. Once people got the power over you, they will abuse it. This is the point where antivaxers are born.

    I am working on it for years. It is my focus. Still I am nowhere. And especially during this "new normal" Covid I feel like 99% of energy is needed just to overcome obstacles that did not exist before.

    Travelling is just one pain in the azz. There is shortage of cars, machines, construction materials. And the worst is that people do not want to work. I t is interesting you count with 10 months to finish it because I am not sure even in 10 years now.

    I feel like at another planet when I hear from people something like that we can do the things like before. Nothing is like before. Yes, there is still food in stores (unless you live in UK I heard), just it cost more.

    It does not matter now much anyone agrees or does not agree with anticovid measures. The world simply has changed dramatically. It is not possible to jump on airplane and go whenever one wants anymore. I am not writing here some personal troubles. I am realistically stating how travelling is nowadays. I did not make up one word. In fact there were much more petty troubles during this one week that I spent on my way, but the texts I am writing here are already too long.

    I could write analogical stories like that from other niches. Even the AMs, who were generally never good at communication, recently got much worse. The whole world is "worse" (worse from general standpoint, when the best possible world was pre-2020 or whichever era was anyone's personal golden age and benchmark).

    At this moment property with abundant construction materials like woods and stones, private jet&airport, dedicated wife, source of energy (world is just running out of solar panels), marksmanship, ability of forging documents and most importantly manual skills on MacGyver level, because you will build it with your own hands, because the rest of the world is gambling with crypto.

    I am out. I was not able to buy even a car during 2021. The last "car" for sale I found is Maverick X3, but it is 2500km away. I should probably buy it anyways. Just came to my mountains with a tent, aluminium pot, drone (that I can not charge anyways, because I have no car; car rentals sold their cars, because there is a huge demand for cars and obviously I am the only foreigner in the country) and LSD.

    Now I remember one really classic moment from the journey. Right after I was asked to change my facemask for another one with higher standards and I came through gate, they packed whole plane inside of the jetbridge for 20 minutes. Crowded af. This is how those anti-covid measures work. I really do not complain. I know it is necessary to go beyond absurdity and destroy whole society, so another can be build with another stupid ideas. It just is not something anyone wants to deliberately be part of (but we all will be).

    Thanks a lot Sherlock for letting me know how I should feel about things, I was waiting my whole life for someone to guide me.

    As you clearly know more about what I do or do not enjoy than myself, I’ll make sure to run all my future plans by you. If you do not approve, I’ll just ditch them and wait for your sign when I can leave the house.

    I am after 24hours sleep where I woke up in the middle with solid nightmares based on the journey. I really thought I am dying. But it all has gone now. It is nice fresh air in the mountains, I drink tea from pure water.

    So I sent to you PM. Maybe we can resolve it. Maybe it is good. If I were at the airport I would post here something stingy. Maybe that would be ever better. I do not know or care anymore what is good. I just know what is around us defines who we are.

    I really want to be surrounded by world of airlines as little as possible now. It is extremely bad. The behavior of staff, people, the chaotic rules are a death spiral. Travelling now resembles https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanfo...son_experiment, where passengers are in the role of prisoners. And I can not really complain like the poor New Zealanders or people from Paraguay or Argentina, who can not or could not return to their homes at all for over a year.

    As I was just attacked by passive aggression of a steward on plane by the toilet. I just stood there as 100x before, because it is the only place on plane where one can stretch his body. And she "told" me to fk off but silently. Just a gesture with a finger. Like saying to a dog "sit down". She was maybe 20 years younger than me, enjoying her power to the max. This is becoming the norm. I can start flying business and 1st class where it is possible, but those local routes do not have higher class. I can rent or buy a private jet as well in the end. But the problem of this amplified downward spiral does not go away even for me, because I will still meet people.

    Maybe just online and they will be hostile towards me, because someone was hostile towards them.

    Let me just apologise to everyone for overreacting to Sherlock’s previous comments.

    He reached out via PM to try and resolve this between us and I was really moved by his gesture.

    The matter is obviously resolved now and I feel bad for dishing out at him.

    Voted: It would not change how likely I would be to attend a show if vaccination was required.
    Mainly because I'm vaccinated already so even if vaccination is required or not for me
