COVID-19 world pandemic aside – Where to travel?

Nobody is really sure whether this global pandemic of the SARS2 virus and disease will ever go away, quite what the connotations and long terms effects are yet to be seen, for one thing; the world has stopped for six months now.

In that time many restrictions were put in place (and still are) in some countries industrial, social travel and economic sectors are still having their entire futures unknown, it is not going to be safely possible to travel to any country without an extra element of risk now, there are some already with travelling anywhere – but man-made biological pathogens are totally different and something we need to take into account.

For now, without a vaccine (and also should you rightly not want to take it), infection risk is a factor, not only us travelling folk but also the travel industry carriers like the aviation industry but also for the end of route spaces like hotels, hostels, restaurants and cafes (both the owners and us) – with a long incubation period it is hard to know if we have contracted the virus – on an enclosed pressured cabin of an aeroplane the air is circulated and filtered but cannot filter very small virus proteins and particles – have you ever got a cold after trips abroad on a plane?

We have to remember here that 80% of people show no symptoms or very mild ones, like that of a cold so let’s all just ignore all that for now and focus on where we would like to go – the world is our oyster, as some might say.

The wonders of the world should be on the list, ancient wonders (from Wikipedia) are:

Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa – located in Alexandria, Egypt.
Colosseum – in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy.
Great Wall of China – built across the historical northern borders of China.
Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey.
Leaning Tower of Pisa in Pisa, Italy.
Porcelain Tower of Nanjing, which is located on the south bank of external Qinhuai River in Nanjing, People’s Republic of China.
Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England.
Cairo Citadel, a medieval Islamic fortification in Cairo, Egypt.
Cluny Abbey in Cluny, Saône-et-Loire, France.
Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire, England.
Taj Mahal, located on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the India city of Agra.

No site should not be put into any sort of top whatever list as it all depends on your preferences, whether you like architecture, landscapes and hilltop views or the hustle-bustle of inner-city life there is so much to see and do with new tastes, influences and feelings of wellbeing.
