Since early last year, people haven’t been able to leave their homes or travel to different places. It must have been a bit of hell for the wanderlust people, those who can’t sit still in one place. We’re meant to experience different things after all, and the pandemic isn’t helping at all.
Positive thinking means thinking about the different things we’re going to do once the restrictions are lifted and immunity is reached. Those who own pools might start looking for alternatives for muriatic acid in pools. Those who are into traveling, well, that’s a dead giveaway. These people will look for the closest place they can visit to get their traveling itch scratched and a new page on their adventure book started.
If you’re one of those who can’t wait to go to other places once the pandemic lifts, feel free to browse through these places. These are expected to be the first regions to experience a surge of tourists post-pandemic.
A very apt name for a place where there’s supposedly a lot of ice, majestic Iceland is also home to a lot of volcanoes, geothermal baths, waterfalls, and glaciers too. This ancient land of the Vikings is a popular destination for people who want to see a glacier up close.
Most tourists have been visiting Iceland for all these experiences and more. Some of them also like how the place is very accessible to tourists and has a fascinating history. With a mix of diverse ecosystems, it is also a very inspiring region as well as a strange one; it can truly inspire different stories, depending on which environment you suddenly find yourself in.
Found in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the nation of 1,192 islands is about as tropical as islands can get. The Maldives is also home to an impressive 5% of the world’s coral reefs, making it a must-visit destination for those who admire this underwater world. With that impressive number of reefs, there’s no question that there is a lot of fish calling this piece of our Earth home.
Water babies will surely want to visit this place for the wealth of experiences it can offer. If you’re into diving, you should go here. Snorkelers and surfers will also find this place home. Literally, any person who wants to live on the sea will find it welcoming.
The City of Lights gets a slight respite from being the destination to go to because of Nice. This region is found right smack in the French Riviera, acting as the capital for the pristine white beach sanctuary of the French region. The mix of blue and white is breathtaking and clearly something anyone tired of the pandemic should see after all this is over.
A lot of tourists find themselves packing up and settling here once they’re done with work. There’s a lot of artists that also call this place home; with the blue waters meeting the white sand, there’s a lot of paintings waiting to be made in this place.
The Old Quarter in NY
New York is currently battling the pandemic tit-for-tat, but there are a lot of places that this old city can offer to the pandemic-weary tourist. If you’re not a bar-hopper, you can go to Times Square to have your first photo taken after the pandemic. You can also take in the different sights and sounds of this wonderful urban utopia.
It’s the City that Never Sleeps, the Big Apple. New York should be on your list once the pandemic lifts.
The farthest region to the north of our nation deserves a visit once the pandemic lifts. Alaska is the place where the sun never sets and midnights are host to the night sun — a phenomenon that must be seen to be believed, just like the Northern Lights are. Climate change believers should also go here to see what’s been happening to the Earth so far.
If you can’t go to Iceland, come to Alaska for the glaciers. After all, you have no assurance whether the glaciers here won’t melt. Remember to pack warmer clothes because it’s gonna get freezing.
The pandemic has all of us left dreaming about the day when we finally leave our homes. If you must, remember to pack your masks. Just because the pandemic is over, that doesn’t mean you should let your guard down. It’s widely believed masks will still be a part of the new normal, so remember to pack securely for your travels.
