Does AH1N1 prevent you from traveling. Is it worst in you place?
I'd say it's probably the least of my concerns when it comes to travel. My state has had a few hundred cases (and they've been in my county more than any other). Based on what "they're" saying these days, that flu isn't even as "dramatic" as the flus that go around every Winter. I guess they're watching what happens to it in Australia these months to get an idea of what Winter does or doesn't do to it.
Yeah its scary travelling when there is a threat that lurks. Our country is the fifth most affected in the world for now and 2 cases of deaths have been recorded so far. Still, we're still thankful here since the strain flu here is weaker than that of the other countries.
Nowadays the spreed of the virus has been in control, this doesn't stop people from traveling around for their work or even their leisure or holiday vacation.
Here in Canada there are lot of cases of nh1n1. The doctors and nurses take precautionary measure to take care of the patients as well as themselves.
This virus was spreading about 2/3 weeks before I was due to leave for a trip to Mexico and Cuba. I was worried. The media was reporting a disturbing picture.
My insurance wouldn't cover my costs to date (several thousand in airfare costs alone) unless it was declared a pandemic. At that stage it wasn't. Not that costs versus health is really any contest! I waited, considered (truthfully I agonised) and decided to go. I actually extended my time in Mexico and felt very very safe there. Mind you I was careful and my sanitising handwash was used frequently. I increased my vitamin C intake and I stayed well and healthy throughout my months on the road. I am so glad that I, along with many many others, continued on my planned journey.
In England the threat of H1N1 has pretty much disappeared now. It was a big worry in the summer and it put a lot of people off travelling particularly to places like Mexico. However, now the threat has died down people don't seem so worried about it impacting their travel plans. I've booked a holiday in America at the end of the month and I'm planning to travel down to Mexico by Greyhound for a few days on the trip. I don't think I'd be so tempted to do that if H1N1 was still a major factor.

I believe that each of us have reasons why we prefer to travel alone or in a group. I want to hear your opinions.

In this current economical climate, are you travelling more and taking advantage of cheaper deals or are you avoiding vacations in general? I'd love to know
