And deep breaths… The last few weeks have been pretty indescribable, right? If you had told someone back in January what we are all going through now during the COVID-19 crisis,  it would have sounded like the synopsis out of a Hollywood movie. But this is worryingly the reality we are all going through.

The world has changed…

It’s been a bit quiet on here. Apologies if you’ve been wondering why I have gone incognito. Of course, I’m sure you’ll all understand it’s pretty hard to continually write up new content when there is no travel to be done, by anyone. And while it’s been tough to see something you’ve worked so hard on for several years suddenly become redundant in the space of a few weeks (page views are down by about 95%), I am trying to remain upbeat that once this is all over, people will be super keen to get back to feeding their wanderlust. I don’t think you can every truly douse the flames of someone whose passion is travel.

Travel like you never have before…

So for everyone who still has the desire to explore and see the world, and take themselves and their families on a marvellous adventure without even leaving their living room then I have some exciting news!

Those of you who follow me know that even when the chips are down, I am always determined to pick myself back up and so if we can’t travel right now, it doesn’t mean we still can’t see the world… which is why I’ve teamed up with four other award-winning travel writers to create a brand new blogArmchair Travels.

Introducing Armchair Travels

With people now stuck at home, virtual travel has increased in popularity but while the need to venture to new and exciting destinations and attractions is particularly prevalent now, we think that being inspired by our beautiful world virtually and from the comfort of our armchairs, will be a welcome respite and prove to be a really fantastic planning tool, too.

What will you find over on Armchair Travels? Well, from rollercoaster rides to city guides, to amazing tours of museums and the best zoos you can visit, we’ve got it covered. Perhaps you might want to see real-life footage of some of the best beaches in the world, or be part of a real-life orchestra? The world may have changed, but the desire to travel still by so many of us remains a constant.

Armchair Travels means you don’t have to wait to get a taste of what’s out there – you can see it all at the click of your fingertips. And we hope that by curating this content for you, it will mean that you can keep feeling inspired by our wonderful world. And when the time is right, you can then turn your dreams into a reality…

So sit back, and give your armchair wings…
