A forum about Kite Aerial Photography - cameras, rigs, kites, techniques, meetings etc.
Information regarding the gathering of KAPpers including the upcoming KAPiCA '06
Just though I'd bump this thread given that we are little over 3 months away from the event.
From my side, my participation is looking doubtful even if the festival goes ahead this year. Travel and quarantine restrictions seem to be set to stay for the foreseeable future.
How are other potential attendees seeing the situation?
Hope everyone is well. Cheers, Kev.
I have not booked my Air BnB yet nor my plane to Europe as the next 3 months are very uncertain, I will wait untill early May and will then decide if it's a go or not. German kite flyers are quite close to Fano and last year Wolfgang Bieck decided to go to Fano as soon as the Danish gouverment opened the borders. I will also try to join Dieppe and Cervia in September.
I'm hoping there will be a Europe/UK vaccine passport scheme in place by June (I'll have had both jabs by April) which would let me go.
I was just trying to get a grip of the current situation in respect of travel in mainland Europe and came across this website.
As you'd expect, the picture is still very bleak. It's basically essential travel only. My port of entry is France via Saint Malo and the French restrictions appear to be severe right now.
I'll be checking back here as we get closer to June and will be hoping that the vaccination program continues to have a positive effect globally. I had my first dose yesterday .
Kevin - just to cheer you up (slightly) - my sister (who has dual nationality and has lived in Paris since the 60's) and her French husband have both had their Pfizer jabs. She says her daughter (who's 49) should be able to get her jab when she turns 50 in April.
Here is the latest update on the regulation to enter Denmark. ... 3 covid tests, a worthy purpose and a 10 days self isolation upon arrival, I bet there will not be many kites in the air on the beach... Things may change but the meeting is in 6 weeks and I have doubts we can maintain our KAPiFANO. Let's double check mi may.
The 'worthy purpose' rules are quite specific - visiting or caring or sick relatives for example - not attending kite festivals or meeting up with friends!
