Your Guide to Planning a Socially Distanced Vacation

Travel Blog, Travel Tips - Ross French - June 12, 2021

Over the last few months, it appears that the pandemic situation is improving in several parts of the world. However, this doesn’t mean that you can go back to the way that things were. Since COVID-19 is far from being eradicated, you still have to be careful when planning your vacation. The good news is that it is quite simple to travel during this period and have lots of fun. If you want clear and concise instructions on how to manage this, consider the guidelines below:

Stay Updated On Statistics

Before you take off anywhere, be sure to research the places you want to visit. Look for cities like Seattle where most people have been vaccinated. If you want to go out and about, there will be less risk of infection.

Keep in mind that the numbers can change quite quickly, so you need to stay up to date on current news. Be prepared for a change of plans if there is a shift in the situation. Remember, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Consider Isolated Travel Options

It’s difficult to control your environment with public transport systems like trains and planes. This is why it’s important to travel in your own vehicle. However, what if you don’t want to be stuck in your car for hours on end? What if you aren’t looking for yet another road trip?

In this case, you could consider renting out a yacht. For instance, if you are headed to Seattle, you can easily access your yacht in Seattle, which makes it simple for you to explore and get supplies as needed.

Look for Remote Rentals

If you are planning to stay on land for any period of time, skip the hotels and other crowded areas. Instead, look for remote rentals in rural or spaced out locations. This way, you can make sure that you don’t have to share a space with anyone outside of your immediate group.

The other benefit is that you get total control over sanitizing the area. This makes it a lot easier to keep all surfaces – and even the air – clean and healthy for you and your family.

Get Creative With Having Fun

Just because there are restrictions in place doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. By being a smart traveller with careful plans, you can ensure that you get the most out of your vacation. For instance, with a little research, you can find tourist spots and other recreational ideas that aren’t swamped with too many people.

You should also take this opportunity to check out places that you would typically miss out on. By doing more research about what a particular city or town has to offer, you can uncover some hidden treasures and enjoy a real adventure.

The pandemic doesn’t have to get in the way of your vacation. With some research, planning, and unique ideas, you can have a holiday that neither you nor your family will ever forget!

Why Not Tour the Greek Islands on Your Own Yacht?

Travel Tips - Ross French - May 6, 2016

Greek Islands

I hear you cry out, “But I can’t afford a yacht, are you crazy, sir?” To which my reply would be, “I may well be crazy, my good man, but you can always charter a yacht on a temporary basis.” Then you would proceed to shake my hand firmly and skip off on your merry way. You see I found this example self-charter yacht itinerary on www.alpineelements.co.uk that gives you an idea of the type of adventuring you could get up to if you get hold of your own yacht (obviously you would need some experience, these vessels aren’t like those ‘self-drive’ boats you get at the British seaside).
