EU to propose Covid-free ‘travel pass’ ahead of summer

COVID-19: This virus will keep evolving – and that makes international travel risky
« In truth even a complete quarantine on travellers wouldn’t reduce the risk of imported virus to zero unless it also applies to the 1,000 or so truck drivers crossing the Channel every day. That’s unlikely.

What to do while currently in Barcelona
- Food delivery
The coronavirus situation doesn’t need to prevent you from trying delicious food and keeping your body fueled and healthy. You can visit Glovo Barcelona and UberEats or other delivery websites, pick anything you have cravings for and have it delivered to your location.
- Communicating with your loved ones
You can use this time to reconnect with your loved ones through different video options online. Keeping everyone up-to-date about yourself, making sure everyone is healthy and well and « making someone’s day » by giving them a good laugh is a great way to maintain strong relations even when you cannot physically spend time together.
Virtual coffees and dinner dates with a friend, family member, a loved one, or a « double-date » even with another couple is the thing to do during these corona times. Why not enjoy someone’s company while everyone stays in the comfort of their home? Times like these sometimes ask us to adapt to another lifestyle, but why not make the best of it?
If you’re at home, you probably have a shelf full of books that you’ve always wanted to read but never got to. Or perhaps you have some texts that you’ve saved on your phone under « read later. » This is the perfect time to take your mind off the current stressful situation and dive into a literary world, at least for a an hour or two a day.
Also, writing or keeping a journal and getting those thoughts and feelings out on paper can be a true stress reliever during times like these.
- Watch a Spanish-themed movie
If you can’t explore the city because of the restrictions, you can watch a Spanish movie instead! We all know that feeling when we watch a movie, we see a scene filmed where we’ve been and we scream ‘I’ve been there!” How about watching a movie about Barcelona while you are in Barcelona? It suddenly changes your current experience of the city. Here is a list of the 30 best Spanish language movies of all time.
- Get some fresh air on your balcony, take a walk or a go for a run
Although social distancing during these times is very important, going outdoors for some fresh air and taking a walk around your premises as often as you can, making use of your backyard if you have one or simply going on your balcony more frequently during the day.
The entire LuggageHero team wishes you good health and positive vibes!
It’s important that we all follow the measures set by the authorities and protect ourselves and others. By social distancing and taking care of our hygiene, we are lessening the change of the virus spreading. Every individual matters. If coronavirus spreads this fast, imagine how contagious some love and a smile are?
