36 | The Expectation Game
This week, I released a video 🎬 about Dominica, The Nature Island 🚀. This video is about 3 things that I particularly paid attention and how this was totally unexpected. In case you don't get the notification, every time I post a new video, you can get an alert by clicking here. 🎞️
Let's clarify something really important: Dominica is not the Dominican Republic. Actually, Santo Domingo, the capital of Dominican Republic is 600 miles away from Roseau, the capital of Dominica. These 2 are very different places with different experiences such as language (Spanish vs English/Creole), food, land, music, art, people, history and pretty much everything. 🇩🇲 🇩🇴
On other hand, I'm happy that the UK started to open places, we're finally leaving the lockdown and in fact I'm getting vaccinated in few days. I got a text from the NHS (National Health System in the UK) to book my appointment. I'll share my thoughts next week but I'm super excited about going back to some “normal” activities. 💉
The next big date for us in the UK is 17th May as the Government will look to continue easing limits on seeing friends, family and the “Stay in the UK” regulation will lift too, meaning leisure travel from England will no longer be illegal. There will still be different levels of restriction for people returning to England from countries based on the traffic light system. 🚦
The idea behind this system is to support the safe return for international travellers.
Green: travellers returning from a country on that list will not need to quarantine, and will only be required to take one post-arrival test. There are 12 countries so far. 🟢
Amber: have to take 2 post-arrival tests and self-isolate at home for 10 days. That covers the most popular UK holiday destinations such as Spain, France, Italy and Greece. 🟡
Red: those returning from a red list country must stay in a quarantine hotel for 11 nights at a cost of £1,750. 🔴
These days, I feel there's a positive sentiment about what's to come. Or in other words, expectations. They tell us we'll be soon able to do X, Y, Z and we get excited. The expectation game is now on.
Have a great week and enjoy the content below!
