We all know the "you wanna travel so bad that you didn't notice this was a cake" meme.

I think it's safe to assume that we all thought that was a boat. At the moment, Corona may have hit pause on travelling as we knew it, but it has also forced us to come up with alternative ideas. We traded the international for the national, exotic Spanish beaches for Long Sands beach and exploring metropolises for hiking.

I don't know about you, but this pandemic has forced me to appreciate my own country more. As an international student, I like to consider myself a "citizen of the world". However, contrasting with the wanderlust that characterises me, was the lack of interest towards my country's scenery. I may seem a hypocrite, but I don't think I was the only one forced to look around and appreciate the beauty of what I perceived as the ordinary.

That being said, in these times of uncertainty it's easy to simultaneously feel stuck and have the urge to ‘fly away’ as Lenny Kravitz sings. Maybe you cannot fly away right now, and you need to settle for cake instead of boats, but take this opportunity to explore what you have come to consider ‘the ordinary’.
