As 2020 crawls along, the coronavirus continues to make international travel difficult. If you’re used to traveling frequently, you probably agree with me that it’s been strange to be stuck at home for so long. A couple weeks ago, a friend and I decided to break out of our routines with a staycation at the Mandarin Oriental in Central Hong Kong! I’ll share our experience so you can decide whether this is a treat you’d like to try for yourself!
Sitting here on this overcast Saturday in my apartment in Hong Kong, I can’t help but reflect on this past month – surely one of the craziest of my life. Currently I’m on day 3 of my compulsory COVID-19 home quarantine. I’m wearing a wristband to track my location and I’m not allowed to leave my apartment. It’s a weird feeling.
When you’re traveling, lost luggage is a huge travel stressor. Even if it’s only lost for a day, it can be a major inconvenience. As you may have seen, on our trip to Lebanon, our checked bag was delayed. How we had to retrieve it is a funny story that I’ll share with you.
