Why Local Travel is your best option right now?
Covid-19 and the pandemic of this last year have completely changed our lives: we have had to adapt to a new way of living, of relating to ourselves, and also to a new way of traveling. As a consequence of this, Local Travel has become the best option for many as sometimes, we just need to travel and discover new places close to where we live. In today’s article, we want to talk about the new trend of Local Travel and what will be the new ways in which we will travel and enjoy our vacations in the post-Covid-19 era.
What is Local Travel?
Currently, the concept “Local Travel” can have different connotations since it can be understood that the term Local Travel refers to trips in which activity related to the local life of that place is carried out. In this way, the aim is to discover new places while experiencing the landscapes, doing common activities, and tasting local foods. In this post, we will refer to “Local Travel” as a concept that refers to discovering new places near our habitual residence. To be tourists in our own city or country surely, by the simple fact of living there, you have not yet visited many of the most popular places and monuments in the territory.
Why it has become the best way to travel?
Local Travel understood as traveling to nearby places, has become the best way to travel in these times of pandemic since it allows us to experience the sensation of going on a trip even if we do not necessarily have to catch a plane or make a long trip. We are all looking forward to being able to travel without any kind of restriction, without any kind of fear, and to be able to enjoy everything we did before experiencing this situation. Even so, and for everything to return to normal, we must bet on continuing to live in a conscious way, and for this, taking a local trip is the best way to be able to satisfy our needs and also do it responsibly, always complying with the established sanitary measures. We recommend that before deciding on any trip or any transfer you make sure of the sanitary measures of both your locality and the place you are going to visit. And if you can make the trip, we invite you to always do it in the most responsible way possible.
Post Covid-19 vacation trends
As we mentioned above, the health situation has taught us to enjoy in a different way and therefore, new post-Covid-19 travel trends have arisen. Next, we will comment on some of the most outstanding trends.
One of the biggest trends will be road trips near each other’s locations. In many places, there are different mobility restrictions so it is not allowed to travel outside the country. In this way, traveling by road will allow you to discover new nearby, and, surely, spectacular places. In addition, we cannot forget the freedom that being able to travel in a car gives you since you will move freely through the places you want to visit.
Travel by motorhome
If in the previous point we were talking about road trips by car, the next trend we want to highlight is that of visiting places by motorhome. Thanks to this travel trend, you can also enjoy a road trip although with many more comforts and services. Also, if you don’t like planning your vacations, you can create the route as you progress along your journey.
Trips to enjoy privacy
It is important to mention that many of the health recommendations that we have had to adopt in recent months have led us to opt for quiet destinations, with little crowds, and where we can enjoy our privacy. As a consequence of this, many people will not only opt for quieter places but will also choose quieter and more intimate accommodations to enjoy a peaceful vacation with their partner, family, or friends.
Travel for personal well-being
The last trend we want to highlight is what is known as traveling for personal well-being. The confinement, the pandemic, and everything that this situation has entailed have caused tourism based on health and personal well-being to experience great growth. Through this type of trip, the aim is to promote emotional and mental health through yoga, outdoor activities, healthy meals… These times have not been easy for many people and therefore, we no longer consider traveling solely as a recreational leisure activity but has become a necessity for many people. Are you ready to discover the surprises of local traveling?
