In closing, I find it a bit ironic writing about a topic that is probably not too practical during this current world pandemic. But perhaps this is the best time to research and plan your dream destination so that you will be prepared to go when the world opens back up. Also, photography is something you can learn while you’re at home. Keep honing your craft and learn to master your camera until the settings become muscle memory to you. Doing this now will ensure that you will not be wasting time figuring out how to use your camera when you’re traveling. Go take walks around your neighborhood or take a short road trip somewhere and spend time capturing images there. Travel is never going to be the same, but it will resume again. The new requirements and restrictions will be implemented accordingly to keep us safe. These changes should not surprise us, as change is the only constant thing in any aspect of life. So as you plan out where you want to go in the near future, start by figuring out your dream destination, do your research and until the world opens back up, keep practicing your photography skills at home so that you will be a master on the road.
