Close your eyes and pretend you’re lying on the grass under the shade of an exotic tree. You’re patiently waiting for the waitress to deliver the cocktail you ordered. It took you almost a year to save for this trip and now you’re finally here. In one of the top 3 destinations, you had been handpicking from your Pinterest account. Now open your eyes…you’re at home, you haven’t left your house in weeks now. It’s not a train smash, it’s all for a good cause. These few moments of daydreaming remind you that once the world is in a better place again you can go ahead with the travel plans that you had made.
Since the best we can do for now is dare to dream a handful of travel enthusiasts on social media have come up with a hashtag #21Days21Destinations This hashtag showcases some fantasy travel as well as places some individuals traveled to before the lockdown. I picked a few that I thought might interest you too.

2. Zanzibar, Tanzania
I saw a poster advertising this trip at the start of the year. I was already making plans trying to figure out how to make a dollar out of 15 cents so that I can start making payments toward this adventure. Do you see the red bananas? Why wouldn’t anyone want to go all the way to try them out for themselves? I for one need to try out some new food!

3. Blue Diamond Beach, Ghana
If there’s one thing I love the most after travel in this entire world it’s swimming. The cool water against your skin leaves you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Couple that with breathtaking views and palm trees swaying against the wind and it makes for a picture-perfect scene. This image is from Samson. (Twitter: @Samson_Aford). According to his tweet, this destination is perfect for “group holiday hangouts, personal relaxation, and romantic treats.”
It’s good to see that despite the different challenges we’re facing across the globe there’s still some positive energy around. We will still be able to travel and create unforgettable experiences.
