Where I'll be when I'm no longer quarantined
Being cooped up inside has got the DOSE team dreaming about where they’ll go once the lockdown restrictions are lifted. Whilst some of us are dreaming of escaping to a sunny beach resort, others would be more than happy with a trip to their local pub. Read on and be inspired…

When this is all over, I want to go on a road trip to Portugal via the French Pyrénées. I’ll load up on bread and cheese and stop off along the way for picnics, hikes and lake swimming with my daughter, spaniel and husband… if we haven’t divorced by then. When we get to Portugal, I’ll drop the babies with my in-laws in Monchique and head off for a surfing trip along the west coast, living on piri piri chicken, chips and Sagres, rounded off with a hop to Belmond Reid’s Palace in Madeira for a night of luxury. This plan heavily depends on the lockdown lifting before summer… which is highly unlikely, but one can dream!

I will be definitely have a REAL house party with all my friends and family I have missed seeing over these past few weeks. I’ll visit all of my favourite Asian restaurants that I can’t access on Deliveroo or have had to shut down, and will enjoy and never take for granted again my beloved local pub, the Red Lion and Sun in Highgate.

The start of the quarantine coincided with the breakdown of my long-term relationship, which left me living alone for the first time as well as being in self-isolation… Sounds terrible, but it’s actually given me a lot of time to reflect about where I’m at now and where I want my life to go. Once this is over, I plan to travel for a little while, work remotely and teach yoga and surfing. My first stop will be Morocco – I go at least once a year and I can’t wait to spend some extended time there. I’m also planning to surf as much as possible whenever I’m able to, so I’ve got my eye on Bali and Sri Lanka. It’s been a weird time, but I do feel like I’m learning about how to be alone whilst also staying connected with those who are important to me. I’m going to appreciate having the freedom to travel so much more after all of this!
