Planned on going from BUD to VCE Tue-Thurs. Now with COVID19 and Delta canceling their flights kind of have to cancel my VCE trip, looking for alternatives. Any thoughts? (Trip is end of April)
Roadtrip through Bratislava, Vienna to Prague.

Not much, a charming old town square. And it isn't too much out of the way...

Didnít cancel yet but as per their site announcement
Quote
Delta's summer seasonal service between JFK and Venice, previously scheduled to begin April 1, will now begin on May 2.
Either way wouldnít feel comfortable going there.

Thinking ahead to my summer vacation (iyh) - Is Iceland reasonable with a toddler and/or a pregnant women? Basically, that would preclude us from hikes. Is there enough to see otherwise that it's worth it, or better to just go somewhere else. I'm looking for shorter flights than the rest of Europe (from NY) and did UK last year. France/Spain etc all too far for what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for some advice on my best options for a 2 week vacation(rent a large house) with family (13 people) in early August near a minyan (including shabbos) that is driving distance from NJ (up to 5 hr drive).

The problem I'm running into is any option near a shabbos minyan is pricey(catskills) and options that are more reasonably priced are not near a shabbos minyan (poconos).

What are some other options or other leads?

What do you recommend Vail vs Banff for summer vacation?
Usually do the Swiss Alps but this year it's not so practical...
