A common side effect of Covid.

Tuesday, October 18th, 2022









Lack of staff at service venues was rampant when we left Australia five months ago. 

It’s exactly the same in a lot of Great Britain right now. 

Most of these ‘Staff Wanted’ signs were taken in Northern Island and Wales. 

Surprisingly, the last one was captured at Campernile, our airport hotel in Berlin. 

The results of this shortage, especially in Great Britain, are that many places are closed or only offering limited service and hours. 

During our recent trip we found ourselves forced to eat dinner between 5:30pm and 6:00pm, as the venues were booked out after that and many were closing at 7:30pm.

They just didn’t have the kitchen or serving staff to stay open later.

This pandemic has many symptoms and they are widespread.
