How to survive this Travel Hibernation?

Travel lovers, how are you coping up with the current outbreak that is putting a halt to your travel plans? We’ve had enough of this COVID-19 causing terrible sickness and suffering around the globe, our hearts and prayers go out to those who are affected. (See the bottom of this article on how you can help.)

Meanwhile, here are some things that may replace our fixations and hopefully delight us a bit during this undesirable situation:

1. Go on road trips – Road trips can be very therapeutic in the sense that you get to see a lot of scenery and enjoy being laid-back appreciating a more relaxed type of travel. Go as far as Legazpi in South or Ilocos Norte for North. You can also simply enjoy the cold weather in Baguio.

Idea: GuestHaven is a highly recommended Bed & Breakfast which is located conveniently in Baguio
It only has 4 rooms in its homey cabin so make sure to book in advance
Another idea: Breathtaking Nasugbu-Ternate Highway connecting Nasugbu and Maragondon Cavite

2. Seize incredibly cheap domestic fares – Can’t help but notice the non-stop Airline Promotions? Don’t be afraid to book, just be conscious of the travel dates & restrictions. It will also be wise to check the current situation in the place you are planning to visit. Besides, you can also search for the latest hotel offers.

COAST – the number 1 hotel in Boracay is offering up to 35% off BAR rates!

3. Search for more personal experiences – as our list goes, our support for local tourism also grows, even more this time by discovering family-owned bed & breakfasts / resorts. They offer more personal experiences because they pay extra attention to details and its really heart-warming how they extend their service beyond expectations. You can find a lot of these in Airbnb!

Ybonita Farm & Villas serves charming dinners and is located in Calatagan, Batangas
Ybonita Farm & Villas offers only 3-4 villas making the surroundings extremely peaceful and private
Private Dinner Setup at Ybonita Farm & Villa without additional charge

4. Eat your heart out – you can never go wrong with good food and you don’t have to go that far to discover new gems. Check out Rustic Mornings in Marikina that serves hearty breakfasts in a dreamy garden ambiance.

5. Plan your next big travel – the anticipation for your next big travel gives you more motivation to save & research. Bet on the crazy deals offered by large international carriers and once things have calmed down make that Switzerland (Yes, Crash Landing on You fans) dream come true!

That’s it folks! Hope you enjoyed this list and see you down the road!

I have been blogging for 11 years and have seen the ups and downs of internet marketing. I love blogging about travel and comfort food while I work full time as a Digital Marketing Manager for an IT Company. On my free time I play the piano and love to do online window shopping. I am obsessed too with city lights at night.
