With World Earth in lockdown, our industry at a standstill and many of
us in self-isolation or quarantine at property, or grounded, this is our blog for
you – it is a way to share stories inside our community, to kind solidarity and
foster a feeling of belonging.
Short essays on what we are each carrying out, how we are acquiring via this darkest hour in travel, how are we handling withdrawal indications from travel, what we intend to do with this down time, a word we want to target on, a desire we have or just, an vital topic you want to share with your travel good friends at this time.

Grounded in Cape City: Whiskey and skipping will get me via
It is heading on 11pm in Cape City (creating this with a glass of whiskey so excuse the grammar). When every thing seems to be heading in the wrong direction (S%&T) I refuse to drown in negativity. Yes, I could assume about the burn up rate of our tech firm, the possible expense-reducing or the stress of typical society, but I am picking out to target on what can be carried out now and building sure my headspace is clear and all set for motion.
Now is the time for self-reflection, get out the undesirable electricity and target on the issues that will make a true variance in my lifetime and finally the firm – I are unable to command a pandemic! I have bought a skipping rope to begin skipping – some thing I have required to do for ages. For the second I get cabin fever, stocked up on some whiskey (because I love whiskey, no other cause) and determined to faucet into the textbooks that I try out read through but never ever have time!
We are also organising group dates with good friends I could even try out a virtual day – the opportunities are unlimited. At the conclusion of the day, make just about every 2nd rely because no a person is assured tomorrow.
The enthusiasm point: 1 vacation and you’re hooked for lifetime
I assume we can all try to remember that to start with overseas holiday getaway we went on? I unquestionably do, I was a vibrant-eyed bushed-tailed young lad, wholly naïve, heading to Thailand with my very long expression girlfriend.
I can nearly try to remember it so vividly, every thing was new to me in Thailand, the tradition (the most astounding humble, friendly I have at any time achieved), foods (Thai crispy crepe), the night time lifetime (Bangla Road, Phuket), the natural environment (acquiring vacuumed by an elephant with no underpants – tale for a different time, it is not what you are thinking), the landscapes (Phi Phi Island, no words and phrases can describe a person of the most gorgeous destinations on this world).
At the time travel grabs you it is addictive there is no turning again and 9 yrs later on almost nothing has modified. To working experience some thing new, with locals or good friends you have designed all around the planet, is some thing truly special and probably these words and phrases never demonstrate the whole context.
When we all go via isolation try to remember, the next vacation is all around the corner. I know I am setting up some thing I have often required to do, explore Brazil and Argentina – it is just a subject of timing now. Peace, love, tech and travel.
