>I want to relax and travel very much

So do millions of other people across the world.

Many, many more millions just want themselves and their loved ones to stay safe, to avoid their loved ones dying, to have enough food and enough money to keep themselves and their families alive. Unfortunately, many millions of people won't have those things.

Just accept that you, like millions of others, just can't have what you want right this minute. Accept the situation as it is, help others wherever you can and, with luck, you won't have to wait too long.......

I got the last plane from Tokyo to Sydney cutting short my Japan trip so now I get to experience 2 weeks self isolation. Lucky I got back before they turned it into mandatory quarantine. I figure I can use the time to do all the things I have been putting aside for the never coming "next time", though I suspect I will end up binge watching lots of shows.

Things got bad pretty quickly here in the Netherlands.

The 27th of Feb the first case was reported and the day after we went on holiday to Tenerife. Got back the 11th of March, and shortly after that it went downhill.

We are close to 10,000 reported cases and over 600 people died, a relatively high %, although less than Italy.

I work from home, only one day go to the Office for some necessary stuff. Kid is home too, so busier than usual..;)

Trip to Northern Ireland is cancelled of course and nothing planned until mid August, although I guess it won’t be over or really under control by then.

Will see. At least we can go outside for some fresh air, do groceries etc. And the weather is ok so far, dry and not warm but sunny.

My guessing is that will last until at least June and things get better in summer so hopefully a trip at the end of the year. If not, also fine. Health is the most important right now.

Of course, being from the USA, we are now number 1.......not that I want to be in this case.....last place never looked so good.

The state of Idaho I live in here in the USA now has 234 cases and 4 dead, one of whom was a good friend of mine in his mid-80's.

My County within the state has about 90 last time I checked and 2 of the deaths were from here locally, and we are in a isolation order from our State Governor and about to get even more isolated in the next couple days. My counties primary source of income is tourism with people coming from places like Seattle and San Francisco where it has hit hard. Our local airport is in the process of doing a partial shut down.

Currently, my place could not be any more bleached out from all the cleaning I have done in my condo. Out of 57 Condo's in my complex, only 5 are occupied. The rest are all rental units. SO quiet.

I work in our local Grocery store and the owners of the store gave us a US$150 gift certificate in addition to our regular paycheck yesterday as a gift for showing up for work faithfully and helping keeping the locals fed and the shelves stocked as best we can for the last 2 weeks. It's been crazy. Going to and from work, it's a ghost town in the mile or so I travel to and from.

Cottonwood, you are lucky to have that job. I have stayed home for 15 days now here in SoCal and just spent over an hour trying to get a grocery delivery scheduled from the two major supermarket chains, Amazon and Instacart. The best date I can get is Wednesday April 1 and I need food before then. Am waiting to hear from my nephew if he can go buy stuff for me tomorrow if I pay him.

Ivan you may not be able to travel, some places are closing borders, airlines are drastically curtailing flights, here in California just about everything is closed from Disneyland to parks and beaches, even the bike trail. Then there are places like Hawaii which has imposed a mandatory 14 day quarantine for all new arrivals so even if you manage to get yourself on a plane to Hawaii, you will spend the next two weeks in your hotel room or condo.
