Long time no talk friends! A lot has been happening within the past four months and COVID has and has not played its part. I unfortunately lost my grandma at the end of the year and it has really taken a toll on my mental health. Not to mention, I can’t back-pack anywhere so I feel really stagnant in my life. That being said: a lot of other good things happened this year. For instance, i started this blog and I never would have thought it would reach countries world-wide. This by far is still my favourite post if you haven’t gotten the chance to check it out please do !
Now, let’s get into this! You know me I like to make these post short and informative! COVID is not going anywhere, which is why a few weeks ago I made this post about ‘10 Countries with Covid Level 1 or No Risk’. Granted, as countries reopen, travel is going to look a lot different, thanks to new safety, testing and cleaning practices. This is the new reality for travelling. Not, to mention the importance of have a negative covid test and mandatory quarantine days. But the new face of travel is also going to have a silver lining. Not only will once over-touristed destinations be less crowded, travellers will be opting for more isolated places.
*Please remember to check all COVID/ Safety regulations before booking any of these places. Be safe and Enjoy.
