Almost all countries all over the world are experiencing some form of a lockdown right now. It’s the only way we can stop spread the coronavirus disease and help flatten the curve. Stay home, save lives as they say. So it became the new normal for everyone – for those who can work from home, they do so; and students continue with their studies online.

But what will happen after the lockdown? Continue reading as I asked around some of my fellow bloggers to see what they’re looking forward to once this pandemic ends.

Lockdown Quote

With so much time at our disposal now that we have nowhere else to go, this has given us the chance to do things we have been putting off for ages. Clean the house, check. Do some sort of closet makeover, done! Start a hobby or play chef in the kitchen, done and done. Helped out even in your own little way, check! (If you still haven’t, then check out these 5 simple ways you can help during COVID-19 outbreak amidst the lockdown – click here).

Lockdown Travel Dreams
Life before the lockdown

This has also given us time to think about a lot of things. To daydream about future plans. I’m sure people cannot wait for this to be all over. So I posted this question on my Facebook page and got a lot of responses from my fellow bloggers!

💭🤔 What are the things you will do and the places you will visit once this whole lockdown is over? 🌎🥰

I can’t wait to reschedule travel that was cancelled including London and to go sit outside at a favorite lunch spot and enjoy the social scene again.

  1. I am definitely daydreaming about travel but must admit I don’t know what it will look like. It’s hard to think we will be able to go back to international travel, Disneyland/Universal Studios visits etc etc. It’s a little scary that this is our new normal!

  2. I absolutely agree with the comment about being excited to reschedule travel! I have missed the ability to explore and CANNOT wait to resume when this is all over! First stop will be Japan, I think 🙂

    I hope you’re doing well during this quarantine, and that its treating you relatively okay!

  3. Surely after this lockdown, we will have a new normal. It will not go back the way it used to. And I am definitely will be going out and traveling with a face mask and a bunch of pocket alcohols from now on.

    1. Now that the ecq was again extended, I think traveling this year will be the least from my list. Anyways, I like the first photo that says “you are not stuck at home, you are safe at home”

  4. Hi Hazel! What a wonderful and smart way of turning our comments into a hopeful blog. You surely gave me an idea. I saw my name there! Let’s continue praying for the best.

  5. After the lockdown, I hope that government agencies, LGUs, and the private sector create and test out plans for another pandemic. Otherwise, we have learned nothing from this. Personally, though, I will definitely have a day (or a half hehe) at the spa and dine out with hubby 🙂

  6. as of the moment din talaga hindi ko alam what to do with life. parang na put on hold talaga. pero im looking forward na to my son moving up to grade 2 and maresked ko yung supposed US trip namin nitong March-May.

  7. Thanks for the feature, Hazel! Everyone has great plans after this pandemic. I just pray that no one gets infected. I hope that there won’t be any second wave after the lockdown.

  8. Magsamgyup talaga ang gusto ko unang gawin… At sana makagala na kahit dito muna sa Pinas…. next year na lang magplano ng international travel.

  9. Once this lockdown ends here in Australia, we will continue to explore our Australia trips, visiting museums, vineyards, etc. International travel will be on-hold for a few months.

  10. I got featured too and I really appreciate that. Everyone was looking forward to that day that we can all go back to our normal plans. I hope this will end soon.

  11. this is smart. you compiled all our answers. I really want to settle back in my hometown. but looks like the pandemic has made us re-evaluate everything. hmmm… we’ll see again. it just goes to show that uncertainty is even a bigger thing to contend with these days.

  12. We are planning to go back to Hawaii in November but because of travel restrictions, we cancelled it and decided to stay home until it is safe to travel. I didn’t have a dream destination now because it came true 5 years ago. I always wanted to see the golden gate bridge and the Hollywood sign ( which was totally different from my expectations based on the Hollywood movies I watched. hehehe. Right now, I just want to go back home to Philippines and be with my family and friends.. There is not place like home, and my heart belongs there…

  13. I really miss travel. Especially as a travel blogger who does this with my big fam. Hahahah! I wanna say that we’re all gonna go back to normal, but then again, I am not so sure. But if it really is safe, I am definitely going to pangasinan, then baguio, then vigan with my fam. And you can be sure that I am so writing it on my blog hahaha
