The first half of the year is almost over. Things are gradually getting better. But many countries remain cautious in easing up tourism restrictions. While I miss traveling, I am probably among those not eager to go back on the road at this time. But I'm still looking forward to doing it again that I've even added a few places to my bucket list. The breathtaking scenery and impressive COVID-19 response are among the top reasons why I picked them.

COVID-19 changed life as we know it.  Sheltering in place, self-isolating, and social distancing are among the measures we take to do our part to curb the spread of this dreaded disease.

It's been thirty-two days since the stay at home order here in New York took effect. The City That Never Sleeps is now quieter as if in slumber as most shops closed and non-essential activities and gatherings have been restricted.  Except for the occasional supply run, there is not much reason for us to leave the safety of our home.
