STAYCATE

Staycate when you have no other choice.

Many Globetrotters are at this time experiencing travel withdrawal and anxieties. From all reports it seems that Europe is experiencing its second wave of the corona virus and several countries are going into or going back to lockdown of some sort.

I can’t believe that it has been ten months already since I boarded a plane and that was a Miami long weekend getaway.

Next month, I will be invoking good memories of my trip to West Africa in December 2019.

There isn’t a place in this world which hasn’t been impacted by the pandemic. If weren’t for COVID 19, I would never have heard about the territory of Wallis and Futuna 🇼🇫, located in the South Pacific which at this time recorded one case of the virus.

Pfizer in collaboration with BioNTech, last week announced that it has begun the phase 3 trial of its vaccine against the COVID 19. Good news for many.

What can and should we do when we are accustomed to getting on planes, trains, boats, or taking road trips, several times a year? To counteract the itch for travel, some of us are doing staycations and others are doing virtual tours, inter alia.

However, as a returned ex-pat to Bermuda, I am taking the time to explore places which I hadn’t, the first time around such as hidden beaches, caves and coves, architecture and parks. This list isn’t exhaustive.

I’m learning a lot history as well especially when visiting the town of St. George’s, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I always knew that Bermuda has the most cerulean blue waters but I can now say that the sunrises and sunsets are just as spectacular.

I spent many weekends enjoying the flights of the Bermuda longtails, whilst on walks and from the comforts of my patio.

Dining around has also become a thing for me.

Lately I attended a few sporting events.

Yes I would admit that I am ready to travel again even before the end of the year, in spite of the many restrictions but if it doesn’t happen I will continue to enjoy what’s in my backyard.
