Frustrated? What holidays look like after Coronavirus Lockdown?
Travel, the luxury many of us took for granted up till March 2020. The question is what does ‘travel’ mean in the new era, and are we all on board?
Travel has never felt more needed. The despair that surfaced during the lockdown Corona crisis to swap the four walls that kept us safe in isolation for the white-washed stone of a Spanish villa. From the exotic hotel rooms to temperature checks at the airport, what will the holiday look like post-corona lockdown?
We all witnessed, that travel as we know it has changed for the nearest future. The weekend breaks to European cities, cheap as chips Airbnb hostels are gone. We all come to terms with long quarantines, health checks, and new levels of hygiene placed everywhere from public places to the private offices.
The good or sad news is, that the desire to travel hasn´t vanished. Numerous surveys indicate most people can´t wait to get traveling again. According to Skyscanner’s poll, out of 2,274 adults, a third want to travel ´as soon as it´s safe and restrictions allow`. A survey of Cosmopolitan UK found, that 54% of readers hope to go on holiday this year.
In October 2019, I and my friends committed ourselves to save up money, save up vacations, and planned an adventurous trip across Iceland. Not surprisingly, Corona lockdown changed our plans. When borders started reopening and last-minute departure to Iceland was still possible, something happened. Corona lockdown change my desire.
My priorities shifted and when borders re-opened, I knew exactly what the perfect holidays will look like for me – Family, home and my freedom enjoying it all, but this time to the fullest.
It´s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times
I enjoyed the simples activities, moments with family, and alone time to reconnect with the world I know. The desire to explore unknown places, countries, and nature replaced the desire to calm down and celebrate what I already have around me. But as it was said already- I took it for granted.
Have a look through my simple moments. I can say with great certainty and absolute honesty – it was one of the best holidays ever <3
