MALAYBALAY, Bukidnon. PHOTOGRAPH COURTEST OF PIA.GOV.PH
In days of isolation, a phone call between friends warms the hearts and uplifts the spirits. All conversations somehow circle back to reminiscing past travels and plans for future journeys once it is all possible.
In addition to the been-there-done-that phenomena on most popular locations, travelers are now more open to wander off elsewhere — away from crowds. Instead of Manila, why not a trip to the serene Malaybalay in Bukidnon? Or perhaps a visit to the casas colgadas of Cuenca over Madrid, Spain?
Flexible work-play arrangements.
As more individuals continue to work from home, they have found a new cadence and discipline all while being extremely productive. For a change, entertain the possibility to go on holiday, and yet still be available for remote work tasks.
Local businesses are king.
This pandemic has taught us the essential role of domestic industries. Why not do the same by supporting local small businesses while on vacation?
Indulgent travel arrangements.
Since we have been cooped up at home for months and months, most have felt the importance of capturing the here and now moments, more than ever. As such, their future plans involve the best luxury deals, with utmost privacy.
Commune with nature.
Finally, our four walls at home have made the notion of wide, open spaces outdoors much more appealing. These locales seem to be more in-demand as travelers do practice social distancing.
