I am a traveler, globetrotter, expat with an insatiable appetite for travel, currently based in Spain but I have lived in 8 countries including Canada and Germany.


  1. I totally agree,we ahould surely support travel industry and help them recover.i recently postponed my trip to September instead of cancelling

  2. These are some great tips! In the last month I have gotten refunds as well as vouchers for cancelled flights and we´ve also bought coupons for a couple of restaurants we intend to go eat at once they open again. Really hoping things get back to normal soon, although I´m afraid it might take a while longer than we all thought at the beginning. Will look into local business stores in my neighbourhood too, thanks for the idea 🙂

  3. I have had nearly all my trips moved over to vouchers except two I’m still waiting to hear back from and have asked them to delay for another year. It really is the best way

  4. Love your ideas to help the tourism industry, Christin! Many don’t think that travel is that important but little do they realise how many jobs are created because of the trips people take.

  5. Good points raised here. Here in the Philippines, we are still in Enhanced Community Quarantine. I am helping my friends who own businesses by promoting their take out/delivery services. I am working part-time for a small hotel and we won’t be accepting guests until next month indefinitely. Supporting local businesses is a must and also visiting/sharing blogs of friends plus watching YouTube vids without skipping ads. We will survive. We can do this! 😀

    1. What a great idea to watch the youtube videos without skipping ads! That will bring some ad revenue to businesses at least! Tragic as these times are, it is great to see communities come together.

  6. I’ve been taking travel credits instead of refunds! I think that is a great idea. I plan on going on the same trips anyway, especially after all of this is over! Great and positive post.
