35 Stunning Dream Vacations for After Lockdown
One of the worst things about lockdown is not seeing my friends and family, and being unable to hug them and hang out like we used to. I wonder when it will end. When will we be able to fly again? Get out of our homes, get to know new cultures, new places, new experiences. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”, right? While in quarantine, I selected some of my dream vacations, and hopefully it won’t be too long before I can stop dreaming and start visiting. Enjoy!
