Support the Economy, by traveling in your own country
I'm here to reinforce the idea of, not only getting to know your country better but at this point, support your own economy. Buy local, support small businesses, and explore your country.
COVID gave a big kick in the economy! Literally EVERYWHERE. In addition to this, we are now in the middle of 2020 and we still have borders closed somewhere, air bridges "built" and we do not know how the second half of the year will be. However, life is slowly starting to come back to a "normality". It is sure that it will not be as we lived it until 2019, but surely not everything is bad and with all the adversities of life, I believe we should always look at the bright side, even when it doesn't seem to be any!
Plans have changed and we are now obliged to think twice and slow down on many levels. If you have changed your holiday plans for this year and canceled your break abroad, especially due to the air-bridges and more quarantine, why not considering taking some time off in your own country?
Let me ask you:
How well do you know your country?
Have you tried traditional dishes from a region?
Which region do you love the most in your country?
How are the locals? And the landscapes/landmarks?
These are all things I ask myself when thinking about how well do I know my country. To exchange cultures, it is also important that you know yours well. And what's best than discovering the habits of your own culture?
That's why I'm here to reinforce the idea of, not only getting to know your country better but at this point, support your own economy. Buy local, support small businesses, and explore your country.
