Missing travel? How to have a holiday in your own home during the coronavirus lockdown!

The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting our lives in so many ways, but mostly we are unable to travel and restricted to staying in our own homes the majority of the time in the current coronavirus lockdown.

Not only are we banned from travelling abroad or on holiday, but we are not even allowed to travel locally unless it’s for one form of exercise per day in our own neighbourhood or to grab essentials from local shops.

All other forms of travel are currently banned in the UK unless you are a key worker or your job is excluded from the current lockdown.

Many people have had to cancel their travel plans and there’s no knowing when travel restrictions will be lifted.  Airports are closed and it could be 12 months, according to some reports, before these worldwide travel restrictions are properly lifted.

With regards to travel and taking holidays we are living in a period of uncertainty for the foreseeable future.  All local attractions have even been closed including National Trust sites and even children’s play parks so there are no days out at all for the time being.

At least for now there has been a silver lining.  It has been really sunny and even warm in the UK for the duration of the lockdown.  This is pretty amazing considering a couple of years ago it snowed at the end of March!

So, if we have the travel bug, but we can’t travel, then what can we do instead to stop cabin fever setting in?

Why not take a holiday in your own home instead?

If you can’t travel and go on holiday, then bring the holiday to you!
