Rethinking travel in a post-pandemic world

Rethinking travel in a post-pandemic world

As a travel advisor, I want to encourage my clients to travel as sustainably as possible, and tend to only train with and support tour operators, cruise lines and resorts, that practice sustainable tourism. October’s social media topic is Cultural Communities. I was inspired to choose this topic and to write this blog post on Rethinking Travel in a Post-Pandemic World, after attending one of G Adventures webinars a few weeks ago, and realizing that there needs to be a real and big (as in global) change in the way we travel. This is the first of three blog posts on the subject of sustainable tourism.

10 things you may not know about the Danube and Eastern Europe

I was inspired to write this blog post on 10 things you may not know about the Danube and Eastern Europe after attending AmaWaterways’ latest Webinar Wednesday (actually it started off as a social media post, but it got too long haha). The presenters were giving insights into some of the destinations visited on a cruise of the lower Danube in Eastern Europe. As I wrote some notes, I decided this would make a great topic for this week’s featured Travel Trivia post on Facebook and Instagram. Several hours of research later, I decided a blog post would be better.

Reykjanes Peninsula Tour – Iceland

Reykjanes Peninsula Tour – Iceland

April 25th 2020, was supposed to be the start of my Iceland Adventure, on the way to the UK for my annual visit with my mum in Newquay, Cornwall. I was going to tour Iceland for a week visiting popular hot spots as well as hidden gems. However, due to COVID-19 and the travel restrictions needed to prevent the spread of the disease, my flights to Iceland and the UK were cancelled (which I expected). So, I decided to tour Iceland virtually instead (via Google Maps—which I do quite often anyway) and to share my virtual journey of Iceland with you. If Iceland is on your travel bucket list, come with me as I take you on a Virtual Iceland Adventure.

Travelling solo doesn’t have to be lonely.

Travelling solo doesn’t have to be lonely.

Security and safety aside, if the thought of feeling lonely while travelling solo worries you and you prefer the company of others to share your travel experiences with, there are several options available. A few that I will highlight are escorted tours, guided self-drive tours, ocean or river cruises or all-inclusive vacations. If you do prefer your own company and you’re not worried about feeling lonely while travelling solo, these options can be for you too.
