Tips for Healthier Travel Post-Covid

Sunday, 5 December 2021

The way in which you travel since Covid is something that you should think carefully about. As the world starts opening up a little, you might be thinking about starting to travel a little more, but how can you do that in a way that’s safe? And what’s different about traveling now in the post-Covid world? Those are the questions we’re going to try to answer today, so read on and find out more.




Take the Time to Understand Rules and Expectations of the Destination You’re Heading To


There are a lot of different rules that need to be followed since Covid became a thing, and that’s certainly still true when it comes to travel. The bad news is that every country in the world has its own set of rules that will depend on where you’re traveling from. So you’ll need to research the rules that’ll apply to you and the expectation in terms of distancing and mask wearing before you travel.


Pay Attention to Your Symptoms


It’s important that you do your best to stay healthy in the lead up to you traveling to your destination. You don’t want to get sick when you’ve booked a trip and then have to self isolate as a result. But if you do develop symptoms, be sure to take a Covid test and don’t assume that it's just a cold because that might not be the case.


Be Respectful of Other People’s Concerns


You definitely need to think about other people and the things that matter to them when they’re traveling. So even if you feel safe, you can’t assume that everyone you come into contact with will feel the same way as you. So try to be respectful of how other people are feeling and respect those concerns in whatever way you can.


It’s Best to Get Vaccinated


If you want to stay safe while you travel, it makes sense to get the covid vaccine and protect yourself, as well as those around you. Traveling means you’ll probably be mixing with more people, putting you at an increased risk of getting sick. And you’ll also find that things like quarantine rules are much more relaxed in most countries for people who have been vaccinated.




Depending on where you're travelling, certain countries require you to be vaccinated to be able to travel by plane. So make sure you plan accordingly.


Wear a Mask in Busier Indoor Locations


If you want to stay safe and avoid the spread of the disease, you definitely need to be wearing a mask in busier places, especially indoor locations. This is where the virus spreads most and in many places around the world, it’s still mandated or accepted that it’s best to wear a mask in those kinds of locations. If other people are doing it, you probably should too.


So if you’re going to be traveling for the first time in a longtime somewhere soon, you definitely need to consider each of the points above. Traveling still carries some risks, and there’s more effort and admin that has to go into the whole process compared to the pre-Covid world.

Easy Tips That Will Help You to Plan Out Your Next Adventure

Friday, 22 October 2021

Planning a trip is certainly a very exciting part of going on an adventure. If you want some help planning your trip or if you just don’t know where to start, then this is the guide for you. Take a look below to find out more.




Plan out your Trip Budget

The first thing that you need to do when you plan a trip is work out how much money you want to spend. Your budget will have a huge impact on how you plan your trip, and it will also impact how long you end up going for as well. If you want to travel on a small budget then don’t overlook destinations such as Laos or even Thailand. Shorten your holiday so that you can visit an expensive country if you want to stretch your budget even more. This may mean you can go to destinations such as Italy or even Portugal.

Choose your Destination

Now you have set your budget, you have to decide which country you want to be travelling to. Work out what kind of trip you want to plan and also think about the favourite things that you have in mind. For example, do you want to rent a boat? Do you like adventure? Maybe you just want a more relaxing holiday. Either way, some countries may be able to offer you more than one type of trip, so make sure that you remember this. If you are looking for an adventure, then try and choose countries which have a lot of thrilling landscapes. This is essentially anywhere in Asia. If you want to relax then picture yourself on heavenly beaches, such as the ones in Greece, Thailand or even the Maldives. If you have a boat then explore the idea of boat storage, so you can get something booked before you go.

Time of Year

Chances are, you may have booked a specific block of time for your holiday so you can get away from work. If you want to plan a trip then you need to think about the best time of year to go in terms of the season and you also need to research the low season as well. Find out when the country is going to be expensive and when it is going to be cheap. Research weather patterns too. If you go to the Philippines, then you should know that they have a typhoon season, and they have two high seasons for every region. Before you fully plan on visiting another country, you need to check the visa requirements as well. In some cases, a travel document will be required for you to enter.

Location

Research is key when you try and plan out your trip. This is especially the case if you plan to travel around the country. Make sure that you go on Instagram or even Pinterest if you can, as this will help you to find blogs and sometimes photo inspiration, which gives you a good idea of what you should be expecting when you travel there yourself.

Now that more and more of the world is opening back up, where are you most excited to travel to? Share your next holiday in the comments below.

And until next time...

What You Need For A Mountain Bike Trip In Australia

Friday, 1 October 2021

When you land in Australia, right away you will have noticed that it's not like any other country in the world. Let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way. The wildlife is incredible but it can be dangerous. There are lots of crocodiles, snakes and spiders that could end your day in a really bad way. However, there aren’t as many animals and other wildlife as you might think. Australia is huge and it's mostly empty. So it's perfect for taking a mountain bike trip, where you can ride over the orange sand in the desert, pedal through the tropical forests and across hills and farmland. But, what exactly do you need for a mountain bike trip through such a unique country?

Well, your fitness routine is often only as effective as your commitment to it, and in understanding where you’re going wrong with your workout, you’ll be able to see the results you want much, much sooner.
