The spread of the coronavirus around the world has taken the joy out of travelling. Although we gladly put all our holiday plans on hold, there is really no clear indication of when we can safely pack our bags and go on our next adventure.

Still, those with wanderlust are taking it all in their stride, using the extended period at home to either reminisce past holidays or just go on virtual holidays to prepare for future trips.
