The show must go on – with live streams.
There is no doubt that it is a weird, murky time in our lives. With travel restrictions changing by the hour in relation to preventing the spread of COVID-19 aka the Coronavirus, our day to day routines have become uncertain. Even the thought of planning holidays ahead is compromising in unknown times like these with governments around the world putting regions, cities in lockdown and closing its borders with the end to this pandemic nowhere in sight.
What we do know is the Australian government has announced all international arrivals into Australia will have to self isolate for two weeks. If international travel has been planned for in the near future, the government has strongly urged to reconsider your need for travel.
So if you do find yourself in the position to self-isolate, never fear about your travel dreams being dashed – for now. Despite not physically being able to travel around the world, you can virtually. Make new friends, discover new places as we list the live streams that will take you further afield than the four walls that you may find yourself confined to.
