We’re going to start our 4th week of lockdown in France, we’ve gotten used to it now, we know how to respect the space of the people with whom we are confined, we don’t eat the family packet of crisps in one go, and we’re learning to do gym at home.
I shared with you my daily activities in a video this week, I put it here for those who haven’t watched it (French subtitles available, click on CC / subtitles).
After going around the world last week, thanks to Las Vegas, I decided to check in with my friends living all over the planet, and you're going to assist me.
Let's start with Greece, which as you know has an important place in my life, since My Solo Wedding in Santorini.
They’re also confined since mid-March, tourist places and shops are closed, apart from supermarkets and pharmacies, unnecessary trips are prohibited, and Europeans arriving in Greece must self-confine for 14 days.
In short, they’re like us, however, they took strict measures from the first case of Covid19 on their territory, on February 27, which means that the country is very little affected.
I can't wait to go back there, but in the meantime let's dive back into the Greek blue with my articles:
Switzerland is less affected than France, with less restrictive measures so far.
I haven't yet shown you the charming city of Zurich with its lake and old houses, but I will soon.
No need to introduce this European city, I talked about it a lot in my special London series:
My friends are confined like us, some show great energy and creativity, like my friend Vincent, a gym & dance teacher, who gives live lessons from home on a donation basis. Don’t hesitate to inquire on his Instagram account: @vmerouze, you won’t regret it!!
The situation is difficult there, not all states are confined, fortunately people discipline themselves with social distancing and self-quarantine.
Difficult to know when we’ll be able to go there again, fortunately there are my blog & souvenir photos:
Country that welcomed me for 7 years, and which remains very dear to my heart, as proof the certificate of friendship given by the Mayor of Brisbane at the time.
The measures put in place are less restrictive than in France, people are invited to stay at home, work from home is encouraged, no more than 2 people to go out or do the groceries, and only Australians can return but they’re quarantined in hotels.
You can re-read my previous articles:
Since March 24, no more entry and transit for foreigners, residents can return but only under certain conditions and with an authorisation. And as of April 7, they’ll be in total confinement like us.
To relax, read my article Spas Around the World, in which I had already made you discover this Asian city.
Obviously, a little tour of France: Paris, Reims, Grenoble, Annecy, Albertville, Marseille ...
To read again:
A special thought for my friends working for the French Embassy in Morocco, and for the French Embassy in Mali.
If you need more distraction, go to the Travel Page to read more.
Some of my favourite posts:
Friendship has no border, no skin colour, no religion. My friends have diverse nationalities, various religions, different cultures and lifestyles, without forgetting my friends from the LGBTQ community: read Superwomen 3 again.
I wouldn’t be who I am without their infallible support and their love, I think very much of you, and I’ll come to visit you as soon as this pandemic is over!!
Have a beautiful week!
Love & Friends,
