Before the global coronavirus pandemic came to engulf the world, it used to be the case that international travel destinations served as something of a reset button. Work leave was approved months in advance and the calendar loomed large on the wall with a daily countdown, a reminder that even on the worst workdays, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
But as many of us have come to learn, what these holidays afforded was more than just enviable snaps for the ‘gram. Rather, they presented an opportunity to step away from the lives we had created for ourselves and take stock of what was really important. Without them, our work lives now blur into our personal lives, our emails continue to govern our waking lives, and we’re now living at a time where anxiety has never been more prevalent. All of this is to say: international travel might be off the cards, but now’s the time to explore what lies in your own backyard.
