Unfortunately, 2020 has not been the best year for traveling. Getting ready for traveling during Coronavirus can be challenging. If you are one of those people who have been quarantined at home for a long time and you are now looking forward to hitting the road, there should be a few things that you need to consider when planning your trip. So keep reading as today we are revealing the ultimate list that you will need when getting ready for traveling during Coronavirus.
Research your Destination
The first step when getting ready for traveling during Coronavirus is research. The year 2020 has not been one when we can just wake up in the morning and decide to head to another country. Start with checking the latest statistics of the COVID-19 of the location you are going to. It is vital to have some basic understanding of how the virus is spreading in the country that you will be visiting. The next step is checking the entry requirements. Unfortunately, half a year later many locations still have restrictions for tourists from other countries. It is also a good idea to check beforehand if you will need to spend 14 days in self-quarantine. If so, it might be better to reconsider your destination. Is it really worth traveling so long and having to spend all this time closed in a hotel? (more…)
Traveling as a child is probably some of your best childhood memories. As awesome as it is traveling with your family, it can also be extremely challenging, however, the earlier you start traveling with children the easier it becomes.
7 ways to avoid ruining a vacation with children
Plan Time Accordingly
When traveling with children you must allow more time for every adventure including getting through security and boarding the plane. Add additional time to your schedule planning each time the child to adult ratio goes up.
If you decide to stop and buy snacks add time for the decision making.
When traveling with children plan for things to go wrong when planning the time to arrive at the airport, time to board a ship, time for check-in at a hotel, and all your excursions. (Strollers and Diaper bags alone take longer to get through security). This alone potentially could make your trip start off on a bad note if you miss your flight.
A Flexible schedule will allow for adjustment and cause less stress for the entire family. (more…)
SIZE DOES MATTER: Most river cruise ships only hold around 160 people. Just enough fellow passengers to give you an opportunity to get to know them over the course of the cruise, but not overwhelming. THIS IS WHY I LOVE RIVER CRUISES-AND YOU WILL TOO. On large cruise ships you might not see the same person twice; not so on a river cruise with less than 200 people. On a river cruise there is a certain camaraderie among the passengers and the crew which I find comforting.
Ever get lost on a large cruise ship? It can’t happen on a river cruise ship. While there are several areas to relax in, such as the lounge or the sun deck, they are easy to find.
DIET? Of course you can maintain your diet on a river cruise. There are always healthy choices and vegetarian options available on river cruises. Just don’t look at the beautiful presentations of the breads and pastries.
However, if you do indulge you can reassure yourself that you will be taking one of those walking excursions soon, so all will be well.
