Most Desired Destinations for your Summer Vacation

*Collaborative post.

COVID-19 has changed the way we holiday. Many of us (like myself) were unable to get away this summer. I had good travel plans for 2020 but all those holiday plans went out of the window once Coronavirus showed up. Having said that, many people are still able to go on holiday this summer. If you have plans to get away this summer, you may be able to get a good deal, which is great. There are lots of offers available at the moment. As long as you stay safe and socially distant, holidays are still possible. I can imagine it being a lot easier to manage if you travel without kids. When kids come into the mix, it can get a little tricky having to manage all the new travel rules and regulations.

Most Desired Destinations for your Summer Vacation

When it comes to summer holidays with the ongoing pandemic, places with nature, beaches, and stunning outdoor settings are best. Here are 3 of the most desired destinations for a great summer vacation –

The Dominican Republic

This is one place I would like to visit. I have heard a lot of good things about the Dominican Republic. My brother in law has visited the island twice and he loved holidaying there. Punta Cana is one of the regions in the Dominican Republic I would love to visit. It is one of the most beautiful regions of the island with some amazing landscape. The weather is always nice and sunny, plus Punta Cana hotels always have amazing reviews. I currently have my eye on the 5-star Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort, Spa & Casino. It looks heavenly.

Barbados

I have always wanted to visit Barbados. It is such a beautiful island with some amazing beaches. I don’t see the island as a tourist destination for kids. It is more for couples, which is probably why I haven’t visited yet. It would be a great summer holiday destination for some time in the future. I can picture myself relaxing on the beach in Barbados and taking in the beautiful scenery. It is a great island to explore with plenty of space to stay socially distant so I am sure it will be even more popular going forward.

Malaga

We visited Barcelona many years ago. It was a lovely holiday. We had a great time. I would love to visit Spain again but this time, I am interested in exploring Malaga. It looks and sounds like a great summer holiday destination.

What do you think of these 3 most desired destinations for a great summer vacation? Have you visited any?

 

 

 

Coronavirus ushers in virtual dating

*Collaborative post.

The Coronavirus pandemic has completely changed lives all over the world in the different. From homeschooling the kids and working from home to shopping more online, wearing face coverings, and being socially distant. For those on the dating scene, the changes are even more. Gone are the days of casual hookups. There are lots of new regulations and changes, and the dating scene is heavily affected. Coronavirus has changed the game of casual dating for the unforeseeable future. I wonder if the dating world will ever go back to how it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.  With the whole working from home and less time in bars, clubs, parties, and other social gatherings, it may be impossible to meet someone new anytime soon. Which is why I see Coronavirus ushering in virtual dating.

How will the dating scene changed with the COVID-19 pandemic

Here are a few changes I see happening in the dating scene –

More online dating

For the time being, I see the dating scene being more online than offline. There will be more and more single people hooking up online. Dating sites like www.nostringsdating.net will be seeing an increase of signups, for those who want to meet new people regularly, but unable to due to spending more time at home and being socially distant in real life. I can imagine more dating sites implementing video calls to make it easier for long-distance hookups to ‘meet’ safely.

Date slow with video calls

Like I wrote in the popular post, goodbye fast fashion, hello slow fashion, the Coronavirus pandemic will allow singles date slow again. Gone are the days of quick hookups. I can imagine more dating sites implementing video calls to make it easier for long-distance hookups to ‘meet’ safely. The video calling feature will be a great addition to dating sites. It will allow singles video call each other before exchanging numbers. Singles will be able to date from the comfort of their homes and get to really know their prospective partner with no added stress of sex or being intimate in the early days. This feature will eliminate all distractions and allow couples to spend more time talking and take things slow. Which will enable them to figure out whether they are compatible quicker than in real life dating where there are all sorts of distractions.

Less casual sex

With the “date slow” comes less casual sex. Those going on a sex dating site looking for a quick hookup may struggle. With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, I see fewer people having casual sex in general. Those that will be having sex will be sticking to one partner, which is great. For those singles only affect sex with no strings, 2020 and beyond may be tough for them. With people being socially distant and spending more time at home reflecting, casual sex may be the last thing on many minds.

Are you single or dating? How are you currently finding the dating world? Are you interested in virtual dating or do you prefer meeting people in real life?

 

 

 

Will you be shopping the high street?

The shops officially open today – 15th June 2020, here in the UK for non-essential shopping. Will you be shopping on the high street? I am not one to window shop so this question is very easy for me to answer. I won’t be shopping the high street but will carry on with my online shopping as usual. Going to the shops is always a drag for me, especially with the kiddies. I rather just shop online conveniently from the comfort of my home and online shopping is even more appealing in times like this when we are dealing with a pandemic.

The new COVID-19 guidelines for the shops opening have been announced. High street shops are expected to implement relevant hygiene and social distancing measures to protect customers and staff. Shops like Marks & Spencer and Ikea will be imposing restrictions on the number of customers in the stores, which is good to know. Clothes fitting and make-up section will not be available to customers, which is understandable. I never liked trying on clothes in stores, so I won’t miss that bit at all, but I know a good number of people will struggle with the fact that these facilities are no longer available for now.

Will it work?

It will be interesting to see how the first week of non-essential shopping goes. Will people go shopping or not? I wonder if the social distancing and relevant hygiene measures will be adhered to in the shops. This is all brand new and you never know how it will all look like in practice. I also wonder how the actual shopping will go. Will customers be allowed to touch the goods or not? I will be keeping my eyes open on social media to catch up on the news on that. Twitter is my favourite social media platform for anything newsworthy.
