Watch the rise Revenge traveler!
After being stuck in our house for two years due to epidemics and not being able to travel anywhere besides traveling to the supermarket, travel bans have finally become more lenient over the last few months. Other destinations are now open for tourists to travel in and out of the country, paving the way for so-called “revenge travelers”.
Retaliatory travelers are those who travel now and travel hard for lost time when they were itching to explore but couldn’t.
However, travel is not the same as before. Well, not right. There are many more things to consider, such as travel requirements and protocols, many of which vary from country to country and from city to city. Planning takes more time because you need to research a lot more information to make sure your travel experience is as smooth as possible.
