The leading epidemiologists studying the coronavirus pandemic are emphasizing the critical need for “social distancing” as the only immediate way of slowing down community spread of the virus. So we on the WendyPerrin.com team are all working from home, staying off mass transit, and limiting ourselves to only essential outdoor activities. With schools closing and moving classes online, museums and churches shutting their doors, Broadway theaters going dark, Disney parks closing, and large gatherings and parties being cancelled everywhere, we imagine many of you are spending a lot of time at home too. We can’t help but feel a little cabin fever already so, as an antidote to the anxiety and claustrophobia that’s going around, we’re sharing gorgeous spots around the globe where you can imagine yourself in blissful isolation, with little human contact and plenty of healthy fresh air. The best news? These places will be waiting for you in real life when it’s time to travel again. If there’s a relaxing place you’re dreaming about to help you get through this difficult time, please let us know in the comments below.
