Only domestically. Too much hassle with quarantine, testing, queues at the border and ever changing rules.

Same answer as Tractor gave. Here in Denmark I can walk around without muzzle (only necessary for entering and leaving public transport), and even though I still have to show a covid pass at museums and zoos and eateries, I don't have to be tested every third day because I already have got my two jabs. But I hope that the vaccinations have reached a level later this year where the governments at least here in Europe ease up on restrictions so that it becomes possible to enjoy a trip abroad. I have a long list of places I want to visit, but I don't want to be trapped somewhere just because there is a third or fourth covid wawe at my holiday destination.

We are still waiting for airlines and restrictions and everything, to get back to normal. We had trips to Germany planned for 2020, and Italy 2021, but we'll wait til we can reliably plan and expect an enjoyable trip. Even the family trip within the US is deferred, since apparently rental cars are impossible.

We have hopes for traveling next summer.
If things clear up a bit, I may make a little international trip in about 6 months.

I remember I had sent a letter to one association for a program (to attend it) ,they used a sentence in their letter which has not seemed realistic to me "We believe that the pandemic would be over until this june"

the june month passed,but the pandemic still available. I cannot imagine the following winter.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.
CEFR --> ILR/DLPT equivalencies

Domestically yes, internationally I don't because of various restrictions and the hassle of testing/quarantining/stuff may be closed down where I want to go. I'm more than ready to, however.
