The lockdown has made vacationing tough. It’s not as if you’ve got plenty of options, and the ones that you do have come with plenty of risks. With the gamble of contracting the virus and getting stuck in a foreign country for a couple of months, it’s easy to see why people are staying put!
Still, restrictions are letting up, making it a perfect time to branch out a little. After all, it’s been a long four months, and it might only get longer. Therefore, taking the opportunity for a break will disturb the current monotony and help if there is a second wave of the virus.
If you’re searching for vacation inspiration during a lockdown, here’s what you need to know.
Stay In The Country
It’s obvious, but it needs repeating – the best option is a staycation. Your home nation has plenty to offer, especially as you’ve probably taken the chance to explore more exotic countries in the past. As a result, you’ve got lots of towns and cities to visit, all of which have tons of incredible sights and attractions. Plus, you can hire an RV and make it feel holiday-like without taking unnecessary risks. As long as you and your family are the only ones in the vehicle, it’s a safe bubble that should remain COVID-free.
Don’t Leave The House
Staying in the house doesn’t sound like a vacation! Okay, so you should go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather after being cooped up for months. However, what you shouldn’t do is feel like you must buy a hotel for a week and sleep in a different bed. Although it’s currently novel, it’s bound to be expensive and unsafe since it’s almost impossible for establishments to reduce the chances of infections. Thankfully, the body requires downtime to restore itself, so any time off is healthy, even if you only spend it relaxing at the local beach.
Traveling light is typically your friend as it never pays to lug around clothes that you won’t wear. In a world where the Coronavirus is at large, the opposite is true since the rules can differ depending on the area. In one state, for instance, you might require a face mask in stores, whereas it could be compulsory in every public place in another. Packing as many COVID essentials as you can fit into your suitcase should prevent you from getting caught out and fined.
Understand the Dangers
Always remember that you can’t eliminate the risk of infection. If you’re traveling out of your home and place of residence, you’re going to increase the odds of exposure. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as you could be willing to take the chance. If, for example, you live with your partner and don’t see anybody else, it won’t make a difference as long as you’re together. Still, it’s worth noting that a vacation is to take a gamble, even if it’s a calculated one.
Will you go on holiday during the lockdown? Or will you wait until the quarantine is over?
