As the autumn break is slowly approaching, we are all thinking of getting back on the route. But many of us wonder where should we actually go for a safe holiday?
The worldwide health crisis has made 2020 an unpredictable time to travel. With cancelled flights and border closures, we've been encouraged to find comfort closer to home. However, with restrictions lifting, now could be the good time to break free from your Covid bubble and take a trip.
Instead of hopping on a plane, why not take the opportunity to explore a little closer to home? With boundless beauty on our doorsteps, let's look at some ways to travel safe during this autumn break.
- Research your destination
Keep on top of travel information. How crowded will it be? What are the current restrictions, facilities, rules? Have a plan B if a destination doesn’t work the way you wish. Look for online sources like travel bloggers/vloggers, wiki travel, lonely planet or Reddit to get live travel information.
- Embrace nature
Time to reconnect with Mother Nature. Roam the forest, find new hiking trails, enjoy the mountains, go on a bike ride, go camping, swim in a river or lakes, have a picnic on a scenic spot or go birdwatching. Spending time in nature will recharge you from the months of lockdown.
- Consider road trips
No transportation is risk-free, but driving your own car gives you at least more control over a lot of things. No headaches about packing mini-sized toiletries or thumb-sized hand sanitizers. It’s relatively more affordable too, with the beauty of stopping at wherever you want. You can also opt for the car-sharing options provided by different kinds services. You still need to be mindful of your activities and interactions with other travellers during the trip. Avoid places or contact with too many people.
- Limit your travelling crowd
Multi-family trips are undoubtedly fun, but things have changed. For now, keeping it small is probably better rather than travelling in big groups.
- Bring your pandemic kit
Welcome to the new normal. Masks, hand sanitizer are your new best friend. Make sure you pack these essential things for the trip.
-Bring your vitamins/supplements
In the midst of a pandemic, it is paramount to keep your immune system at its best. The last thing you want is to be vulnerable and weak. The great news is, your daily requirement of vitamins and minerals don’t only come in liquid, pills or tablets but also in cookies, which makes it t all so easy and practical!
Vegan and organic, these cookies provides 100% of your daily need of vitamin D, B12 and omega-3. They're also high in zinc, iron, calcium and fibre.
Enjoy them at breakfast, for a snack or as a treat during your trip. Small enough to fit in your suitcase or backpack, naanu cookies offer a healthier, more delicious supplement alternative for a vegan, on-the-go diet. Our original and no-added sugar range are available in 3 tasty flavours.
Travel in the time of the pandemic is not the same as it used to be. But as long as we stay cautious, responsible and protect ourselves, we can enjoy some simple post-lockdown getaways.
