international travel – is it really necessary to physically visit a certain place in order to "really get the place"?

I have often heard people who normally travel widely claim that I cannot "get" a place until I have physically visited it and "seen it with my own eyes".

But is that really true?

I basically never traveled. Some of the reasons for this are: lack of money, fear of flying, fear of the bulls / thugs in sketchy countries, the complete lack of privacy (especially nowadays), not enjoying being with people, not being social at all, I have nobody with whom I can travel, a general inability to "get along" in general even when I live and grew up (let alone in a completely foreign environment) and not have the "peace of mind" to simply "see the world" (which I do think that's very selfish) etc.

Anyway, me to have I've seen very high definition video / audio from anywhere on this planet (assuming, of course, they didn't somehow fake everything, which seems extremely unlikely). For many years. Both in films, television series, documentaries, news reels, online videos of various types and in recent years in live streams from exotic and less exotic locations of all kinds.

Of course, if someone were to film (or even allow me to make) the place where I grew up and then show it to someone around the world, I wouldn't consider him "understood" what it means to me . But then again, I wouldn't expect that even if they had come here physically and seen it with their own eyes. (And not just because it has been changed / ruined since then.)

Maybe people who say this mean I can't know how people would treat me just because they treated the person filming / streaming X well / badly? And of course there can be many things that are not shown in the video / stream. For example, someone thinks local women are extremely attractive and loves foreigners, but doesn't say that in a documentary. This is an example of information that I would be missing if I only watched a video / stream from one place.

Overall, however, I think that I understand practically every "well-known" place on this planet very well, because there are nice and cheap massage places in numerous "poor" countries and that there are different nice places, but I also know how poorly cared for their buildings and how poorly the animals are treated, how dangerous it is and how easy it is to be cheated etc.

Although I don't pretend to be "well traveled", I wonder if my collective understanding of the world is not correct by watching so many different videos of different types, often without talking / music / editing, at least "quite enough" to determine that it is not worth it for me to put a fortune of my poor savings in some of the places that I find most attractive.

As miserable as it sounds, I am "satisfied" in many ways with "being" in these places in my head, supported by the video / audio material. In some cases, when I had a VR headset, I "visited" some places in VR that were as impressive as technology allows.

Yes it could Be it that when I arrive in China, all the beautiful Chinese girls flock around me and attack me with kisses and hugs and treat me like a famous superstar. I am sure that many male travelers hope to do so. In reality, however, I would probably just be another stupid tourist, and the only girls who speak to me are part of a gang of scams. When I fast forward an hour, I notice that my wallet is gone, just like these charming young ladies who just wanted to take a photo with the "exotic foreigner".

What I'm saying is that given that I'm "at home" (here) an anti-social loser, I strongly doubt that changing the scene would change anything. I honestly have no interest in walking around with a camera and shopping in shops that sell identical items to tourists, and I've often wondered what travel is all about and how there can be so many people doing so much Pay money and spend so much time, energy and enthusiasm with it.

It would be different if I was specially invited by a royal family or if I were rich in my own superyacht or if I had to inspect a factory of mine or the like. Then there would be a good reason for me to be there instead of desperately hoping that "good things" would happen to me just because I am far from home.

international travel – does a citizen of Antigua and Barbuda need to apply for a UK visa?

Do I still need to apply for a UK visa while Antigua and Barbuda are among "countries whose citizens do not need a Schengen visa to enter a member country of the Schengen area for tourism or business reasons".

I hear that if I get the British visa, I will be more likely to enter the country while a Schengen visa will not automatically let you enter, and I can also travel through Europe.

international travel – in which countries are foreigners not allowed to leave during a pandemic?

Luzon island (where Manila is located) in the Philippines decided to ban outbound international flights, but the decision was reversed a few days later:

https://www.rappler.com/business/254885-philippine-airlines-cebu-pacific-airasia-flight-cancelations-coronavirus-luzon-lockdown:

The airline will announce the status of its international flights at a later date from March 20 to April 12, as it coordinates with the authorities.

https://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1096970:

The Ministry of Tourism (DOT) has vowed to lift the travel ban on outgoing passengers except for Filipino tourists, in line with the Luzon-wide extended quarantine.

Peru also has a lock: https://www.tennessean.com/in-depth/news/health/2020/03/20/americans-stranded-peru-coronavirus-lockdown/2873582001/

Some found out when a hotel employee knocked on their door late Sunday night and said they had 24 hours to leave the country

List: https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2020/mar/20/coronavirus-travel-ban-advice-updates-uk-countries-restrictions-fco-warnings:

  • Albania and Slovenia: All flights suspended.
  • Jordan: No commercial flights to or from Jordan and all land and sea borders closed.

international travel – How do I get from Rovaniemi to Trondheim in the corona crisis?

How do I get from Rovaniemi, Finland to Trondheim, Norway without a car?

  • Finnish citizen with permanent residence in Norway, with pictures of relevant documents and a passport.
  • Not in a terrible hurry.

Some options:

  • Can I fly from Helsinki to Oslo or Trondheim after taking a train to Helsinki? The flights are fully booked for about a week, which is not ideal.
  • Is there any way to get to Troms / Tromsø / Tromssa and can I continue flying from there (or even take a bus)?
  • Can you drive through Sweden? A Vaasa / Vasa ship or a method that crosses the border at Tornio / Torneå are possible ways to get to Sweden if possible.
  • Is there a functional way to find people who travel the same route or part of it by private car?

Transit – New Istanbul Airport and 1 hour to switch from domestic to international flight

So I will have exactly one hour between flights on IS Airport.
Different reservations, no guarantee for missed flights.

Turkish Airlines domestic flight 16:30 <->
LOT Polish Airlines International from 5:30 p.m.

The question is will I be able to do it

Does anyone know whether it is easy and relatively quick to change after arrival or whether the entire facility has to be left and re-entered?
What about passport controls?
From what I've checked, there are no separate terminals between domestic and international flights, so I think I will arrive in the common area. In theory, it should be easy to change the gate (+ passport control).

All tips and experiences shared here are very much appreciated!

International Travel – Does Duterte's Metro Manila blockage due to COVID-19 affect non-Filipino citizens traveling from Metro Manila to another location?

I read on https://redd.it/fhg2ew (mirror):

Land, air and sea travel suspended from and to Metro Manila from March 15th to April 14th, 2020

and I read on https://www.cnnphilippines.com/news/2020/3/12/Philippines-expands-travel-ban-to-all-countries-with-local-COVID-19-transmission.html (mirror) ::

All foreigners from countries reporting local broadcasts of COVID-19 cannot enter the country, while Filipinos cannot travel to these countries.

But none of these pages seem to refer to an official source.

Does CODID-19's Dutertes ban on Metro Manila affect non-Filipino citizens traveling to Metro Manila during the Metro Manila blackout period?
