Pandemic Holidays

Due to the coronavirus pandemic travel restrictions are present almost everywhere. Where can someone travel if they want to minimize risk?

Many choose Staycation, while others take advantage of the absence of crowds and go to usually overcrowded tourist hotspots. Normally, tourists will congregate at beaches, city centers, and landmarks, but under corona the original charm of these places has been restored. What is it like to take a vacation during a pandemic? We visit Mallorca, an extremely popular destination for cruise ships, and travel to Croatia to visit the city of Dubrovnik, the relatively new tourist hotspot thanks to the hit series “Game of Thrones.”
