The Lockdown Diaries - Day 37 #lockdowndiaries Today's tale of the great outdoors comes straight from one of our favorite countries in the world: Nepal. - How much is left to finish today's trekking? - I asked the guide after several hours of climbing steps up the mountain, breathless. - Just twenty minutes, half an hour. - He answered. Two hours later, exhausted, I finally arrived at our eco-community lodge, the first of several where we would sleep while undertaking the Mohare Hill (Mohare Danda) trek, at the Annapurnas' footsteps. For the extra hour and a half, mixed thoughts crossed my mind: How could I lie to myself? Wasn't he able to see that I was on the verge of fainting? I miss that trip so much. After the first day of adjustment to what was to come, things were only upwards and onwards on the following ones - with their ups and downs that I'll tell you about another day. It was one of the biggest challenges I have faced so far. I kid you not, I was this close to abandon the trek that day. The funniest thing is to think that the uncertainty of not knowing when that endless day would end almost drives me crazy. Little did I know that three years later the uncertainty would be when we would be able to leave the house after a month and a half locked up, knowing that at least another one is ahead of us. How right is he who said that life puts us in our place. #NepalTales #Annapurnas #MohareTrek #MohareDanda
Cape Town is definitely one of the best places to visit in South Africa if you would like to taste a different culture while enjoying all the perks of urban life. This hotel is located in Arusha and features African-style chalets that are equipped with mosquito nets and air conditioning, making it one of the safest places to visit in Africa. This eco-lodge is set around 1 km from Volcanoes National Park, which is the starting point of the exciting gorilla trekking tours and one of the best places to visit in Africa. In addition to marine life, you can also experience the savannah and sand dunes in this area, making Bazaruto a microcosm of the entire continent and one of the best places to visit in Africa.
The Lockdown Diaries - Day 36 #lockdowndiaries Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Maxwell Maltz seems to be the father of the '21 days to form a habit idea 'as published in a 1960 self-help book called' Psycho-Cybernetics, A New Way to Get More Living Out of Life '. The truth is that after 36 days locked up, the habit of confinement has taken over us. The idea of going outside crosses our minds a little less every day, and we have even created new routines in our lives adjusted to this new reality. I wonder if this has anything to do with the confinement that inmates experience in jail. And although I doubt that, it is increasingly clear that this period of our lives will be remembered as our particular period in prison, freedom deprived. #quarantinethoughts #SpainLockdown #prison #freedom
Nearby islands and lakes included on the tour are Skeleton Reef, which homes World War II shipwreck sites; Twin Lagoon’s turquoise waters; and the Calamian Islands, home to many sub islands and dive resorts. While most beaches allow you to eat lunch and bring outside food, Malcapuya beach (in Malcapuya island, near Coron) offers fresh coconut water and other drinks right on the sands of the beach! Another one of the islands that can be reached via boat tour, Bulog Dos Island, is about an hour and a half to two hours away from Coron Town Proper. The water here is so shallow that you can travel to its sister island and visit the Two Seasons Coron Island Resort.
If you’re not going to be relying on public transportation to and around your destination, find the best prices and transport times on Hopper, Skyscanner, or Kiwi. For example, if you’re planning on going kayaking, you don’t need to know every twist and turn in the river, or the flora and fauna you can expect to see. But what we do recommend is including important things like the contact details of the kayaking company, contact details of your hotel or accommodation, your medical cover details, emergency services phone numbers, or the route to the nearest medical facility. You don’t need to run out and join an environmental group or go out of your way to find an eco-warrior even to take part in.
The Lockdown Diaries - Day 34 #lockdowndiaries Every time I get asked which destinations I'd love to go back and which ones I'd absolutely avoid in the future, my answer is usually along the lines of 'all places in the world have something, so anywhere and everywhere'. I know, it's ridiculous. The answer couldn't be vaguer. I guess I do not want to hurt anyone, but the truth is that there are some places I would never go back to. This morning I saw it crystal clear. One of them is Chernobyl. I was invited there three years ago and I do not regret visiting, but after having done so, I can't help it to hate myself for putting my own life at risk - just a tiny bit - and especially the lives of those who work there day in and day out for the sake of dark tourism. From the perimeter security guards to the canteen cooks and guides who day after day bring the Geiger counter to places where it shouldn't be for the joys of tourists (these eyes saw it marking 273 cm away from the infamous yellow Ferris wheel of Pryp'yat '), it's plain stupid. And dangerous. But why do I bring this issue up today? Bear with me just a bit more, please. The media in Spain has been exclusively talking about the C * virus since the countrywide status alert was established five weeks ago. Thus television went from being trash to being a C*virus trash pretty much overnight. And it was filled with so-called experts discussing 'groundbreaking' stuff that had already done the rounds in Asia a couple of months ago. Almost the same old sh*t on TV we were used to. Until this week, when other disasters began to unsettle the media - of course, catastrophes sell! - like the wildfires in the vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, an already dated problem that started on April 4. As a result, it has been a long time since we limited our consumption of news to global, online and on-demand stuff for 5 minutes. And, on the other hand, questions are changing. Would you like to go back to how you were before? Well, yes and no. As a society, we could as well start changing some things. Ah, the C*virus joys and silver linings. #Spainlockdown #televisionrulesthenation #inquarantine #5weeks

The Lockdown Diaries - Day 33 #lockdowndiaries Our last proper hike in nature - in mid-February - keeps coming to my mind lately. It took place the same day as our first-ever picnic. Jose made a delicious and slightly undercooked potato omelet, we bought some fresh bread and added some cured loin, scallops and a can of foie that the company I worked for had sent me as part of the Christmas basket. What a feast we had! The fact is that, as sometimes happens to us, we stopped too many times on the way to take photos and aware the night was coming, we decided to call a taxi before finishing it when we were about three-quarters of the way. How little did we know back then that only a couple of months later, we wish we could walk that remaining quarter of the way madly. Even if it was pitch black. I have just walked through our apartment from end to end over three hundred times to walk 6000 steps and break the starvation that has been trapping me for more than a month. We had it all. #memories #throwbackthursday #talesofquarantine #6000steps
The Lockdown Diaries - Day 32 #lockdowndiaries While France instills fear in its population - and in neighboring countries - with rumors of an extension of almost half a year of the containment measures, South Korea continues to report reinfections everywhere, there are numerous infections that cast doubt on the effectiveness from the heat to kill this virus in Africa, and the USA remains the world leader in infections; Our country (Spain) gives a pass by default to all schoolchildren this school year. The world is crazy right now. Or has it been too many days since I left home? #crazyworld #COVIDmadness #notToday #quarantine
