Thanks Andy. Hotel Zafolia looks good but quite expensive for what it is. 

I also checked flights - Easyjet flies there but only on Wednesdays so I would have to stay the whole week. There are worse places to be I guess. 

Anybody interested in a quick weekend trip there in Spring to scout it out?

I am in for the Challenge. 

As for the scouting trip in Spring, maybe not - I may have a dozen boxes of toilet paper to finish up this year :) 

 

If you're unable to use the toilet rolls, Ravi, I feel sure that the Invisible Man will take them.

Let’s see how this develops. Ann thought of the “Take a photograph within a mile of your home Challenge” a few years ago. I think it might have been one New Year’s Day. 

Anyway, something like that could be a good idea.

Before Christmas, Ravi invited me for a recce weekend in Athens in April, but I couldn’t afford the time then. Obviously that wouldn’t be happening now in any case.

In my view the One Challenge isn't really about the photography side of things but about seeing old friends, meeting new ones, having a pleasant time and a few laughs, and getting to know a new venue a little so I'd be happy if it just skipped a year if the situation is the same in October.  Happy either way really.

...until you spend most of the workday in video calls, the sensation starts to wear off slightly and I wonder, whether the headset will make a permanent impression. :)

My suggestion would be to wait how things develop. I have the (nonscientifically funded) gut feeling that things might have cleared up until October. I'm confident they will be happy to sell us flights and hotels to boost at least their Q4 results.

Just my opinion.

I think this will all be over after Easter. It is all about slowing down / stopping the spread of the virus and 5 weeks should do that, followed by a couple of extra weeks just to be sure. 

I am keeping track through this tracker. No evidence that it is slowing down yet. https://www.corona-data.ch/ but we have had "stay at home" for just a week now. 

I am still hopeful for a holiday in USA in July and no concerns for the One Challenge.
