Travel In The Time Of Corona

Travel In The Age Of Coronavirus

 

The Coronavirus crisis has taken over the globe. Countries are going into lockdown, public events are being postponed and several governments have declared it as a national crisis. Yet modern travellers will not and should forfeit their limited leisure time and remain cooped up indoors. It is important to state that it is completely fine to travel, however non essential travel to destinations with level 3 notices is not advised. This includes China, Iran, South Korea and Italy.

Cruise ships, planes and all forms of tightly packed transport are not recommended. In response to this, voyagers are taking road trips and weekend getaways to popular spots. Since flights are not recommended, this public health emergency can be seen as a great opportunity to discover your own country. In India, many are taking road trips to exotic and underexplored locations.

I believe that these tumultuous times provide us with a unique opportunity to ask ourselves an important question. Why do we travel? What does travel mean to us? The answer is surprisingly simple. The human consciousness is composed of an algorithm that makes decisions with available data and a cache of aforementioned data, known as memories. This the sum total of what makes you, you and what makes me, me. Travel adds valuable experiences into the data cache and puts you in a situation where decisions mu to be made. It stimulates both halves of our consciousness and the entire experience ends up being a cherished and easily retrievable memory.

Furthermore it is part of our fundamental nature to equalize with our immediate environment. It does not matter if you live in the most beautiful place, after a long enough period of time, the highs become less frequent and the lows become less severe. Essentially the experience is shaved down to averages. This condition is what travel grabs firmly and gives a strong shake. It wakes you up and forces you to look at the face of the world and accept it for what it is. You will not always enjoy it, it is not a factory finished shot of dopamine akin to a television show or shopping, rather it is a complex spiritual experience that teaches a myriad of complex and personalized lessons.

If you really understand this, your entire conception of travel should change. Who wants to see the world’s most expensive hotel in Dubai when you can be drinking rice beer at a northeastern music festival, experiencing 180 degrees of stars in the Rajsthani desert or gazing upon the majestic beauty of the Himalayas. Travel is a mix of therapy and enlightenment insofar as it opens your eyes to the true nature of the world.

The number of Coronavirus victims in India crossed 60 after Kerala, Maharashtra and Karnataka reported 14 new cases. The total number of people screened at the airports is 9,41,717. This handy graphic shows you the spread of Coronavirus in India. If you are very cautious, you should avoid these areas but the rest of India is waiting for you. In fact, the panic of this virus and the general slowing of the world economy has crushed demand. If you negotiate, this is the perfect time to get some exceptional deals.
