The pandemic has made travel difficult, but there are still ways to leave your home base. Here are a few trends for 2022.
If there’s one thing we can say about 2020, it taught us how to handle unprecedented levels of uncertainty. Over the last year, and into 2022, we’ve been asked to change everything about the way we UFABET work, socialize, and sustain ourselves — putting leisure travel largely on hold as well.
It’s estimate the tourism industry won’t experience a full recovery for several more years.
We’ll go big
Quite simply, more people will be traveling. Americans are notoriously bad at using vacation days — to the point 768 million went unused in 2018. With many offices embracing remote work, the number of digital nomads is likely to increase. As the Wall Street Journal reports, many countries including Estonia, Georgia, and Bermuda have already embraced the trend by offering special year-long visas for remote workers able to support themselves without taking additional work in the country.
In April of 2020, flights decreased a record 58%. Meanwhile, across the year car traffic decreased by a staggering 28.9 billion vehicle miles. All this working from home and putting off non-essential errands had ecological advantages — as reported by National Geographic areas of pollution choked India, nitrogen dioxide fell more than 70 percent.
But it’ll take more than simply rethinking trips to make a difference. Antero Vartia, the CEO of Compensate, a carbon off-set organization, likens the practice of flying less to occasionally throwing trash in a neighborhood park you’ve been asked to keep clean. And as he reveals, even a single flight releases a lot of “trash.”
You can think of the practice as an ecological trade.
