Martina Grossi, founder of The Global Curious, usually blogs about travel guidance and itineraries, yet with national and international restrictions in place, numerous plans have been called off.
“I was travelling to Argentina in June, so that’s not happening anymore, and then my mother-in-law – she was supposed to arrive from Chile, and that’s not happening either.''
Despite plans for Indonesia as far ahead as Christmas now axed, she believes there are positives to be appreciated during the downtime.
“But, all in all, it’s good, because last year was the biggest year in terms of travel for us. I was travelling for nearly five months, so this year… it’s good just to take it easy and focus on the blog and growing my business.”
Despite the current situation, Grossi is finding inspiration and opportunities amidst the hold ups for business growth in content writing, as well as creating product and gear guides, something the Coronavirus lockdown period is allowing extra time for.
While the Argentine national is unsure of what travel blogging will look like going ahead, she believes a trend in domestic tourism is likely to emerge with a greater national appreciation for our backyard.
