International travel turned risky and even travelling inside your own country, and staying at strange places did not seem safe.

The tourism industry has been opening up in several places, and strict regulations have been enforced to ensure a safe visit. So maybe once you are done taking down the Christmas decorations you could plan a fun little vacation at a place you haven’t seen before.
