Ever since Covid-19 emerged in December 2019, all of our travel plans have been put on pause indefinitely. It's been a challenging time to say the least and we can only imagine how much wanderlust you've got pent up. But we're here with some good news to kick off your week!
Based on a report by The Straits Times
, Australia's Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack is currently discussing a possible travel bubble between Singapore and Australia to take place as early as July 2021. The plan is an effort to restart tourism and according to The Sydney Morning Herald
, this would allow Singaporeans and Australians who had been vaccinated to travel between the countries without having to quarantine .
Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack also shared that as the vaccine continues to roll out in Australia and other countries, we can expect to see more bubbles reopening. While these talks of travel bubbles are still in the early stages, we can't help but feel hopeful especially since Australia already has a one-way travel bubble with New Zealand
(though the arrangement has had a few hiccups due to several virus outbreaks).
As we continue to recover from the pandemic,
this news is a sign that brighter days are ahead and we'll be coming out on the other side invigorated, ready to embark on that long-awaited adventure ?
