I was unsure whether I should post articles about travel at the moment, as we are all trying to deal with the events that are unfolding around us everywhere in the world.
I am mindful that of course travel is just not an option, or a priority, at the moment and with the travel industry in free fall, I didn’t want to be insensitive and post as if nothing is going on.
However, I am personally finding it quite comforting and a bit of release to continue to write about my experiences. But what is at the forefront of my mind as I see the job losses and businesses folding, is that the fantastic places that I visited only a short time ago will now be struggling and going through very difficult times. And I think of all the amazing people who we met who are probably being hit very hard by the current situation.
When thinking about writing posts about my most recent trip, one of the main reasons for doing so was to share the details of these businesses and their destinations. I hope and pray that they will survive the crisis so that when we are able to travel again, someone might just think of visiting them.
With that in mind I intend to write full reviews of each place we visited to give you a more detailed idea of what experience you could get from visiting them. The travel industry needs all the help it can get and this is just one small way I feel I can support those who made our trips very special indeed.
Of course, keeping ourselves and our families safe are the most important things to focus on at the moment.
However, one day we will be able to travel again, who knows when or in what shape the travel industry will be in by then. But I for one am enjoying reminiscing about my travels and reading about other amazing destinations, whilst I am cooped up indoors.
These activities are whetting my appetite and giving me so much food for thought as to what I want to see in the world when this is all over!
Travel is my happy place and I think we all need to focus on our happy places in these challenging times!
