It’s been a while
Let’s just say that last two years were quite hectic and during the covid rollercoaster I kept myself busy with other projects, not so much with this blog. But no matter what I will keep on writing, because I do have so much content to share. Despite everything that’s been going on in the world, I was able to travel a lot since 2020 till now and I do feel thankful. Travel was so limited, it felt like an appocalypse happened , something that no one could predict.
Europe travels in 2020
Of course 2020 was extremely special in terms of traveling and I was just happy that we were able to travel at least a bit. In 2020 we traveled to Iceland, Greece and Cyprus, it wasn’t really a bad year. I’m also always forgetting that we were in Asia for almost 6 weeks in the beginning of 2020. So yes, after Asia, the rest of 2020 was dedicated to Europe. I was always saving Iceland for “later”. And that later finally came in 2020. We were so lucky with Iceland. Prices were very low in July 2020 and there were almost 0 other travelers. Also continued our travels to Greece and Cyprus in 2020. It was more than expected. I thought we would be stuck in Slovenia the whole time.
2021 brings travel back
And 2021 started with traveling to the Azores, which was fantastic. I love the Azores so much. It’s undoubtley an undiscovered gem in Europe and I do highly recommend The Azores. From Azores to Iceland, Santorini and then Namibia. Also visited Cape Verde in 2021 and Jorda. Actually I went to Namibia twice. So lucky, I know. With the kids we’ve been to Santorini, Namibia and Jordan in 2021. They loved it. Will write more about it in future posts. So beginning with April 2021, things were back to te new normal.
The new normal for traveling
Well, nothing is the same anymore. Each country demands something. Either a covid test or another certificate, but for sure there is something. So traveling is not like it was before 2020. But it’s of course one more time possible to travel. More and more countries are also opening up to tourism. Which is a wonderful news. Not only will tourism help those who work directly in tourism, but also to a wide circle of people that were desperate during the last two years. So no matter what the measures are, I don’t care much. As long as we can travel!
I just came home from Venezuela
Can you even believe it? Since 2013 I’ve been planning this trip and finally now it happened. So very happy about it. Some would say that now is the most inappropriate time to visit Venezuela, but I highly disagree. I will write more about Venezuela in future posts, so follow along if you want to find out more. I guess 2022 started so well. Spent the New Years in Jordan and my next trip was Venezuela. Kinda hope it continues this way.
So yes, here’s to more travels this year. And I’ll also do my best to write more. Because there are stories, believe me… So many. And many more to come, I so much look forward to it. Until the next time, I’ll add some photos down below.
