My name is Sharon Waugh and I run travel humor blog The Sharonicles. In my recent tongue-in-cheek blog post, I suggested that practicing travel poses is one way for travel-obsessed people to cope with lockdown and the current travel restrictions.

Lockdown has been tough, but I believe I have coped with it in the same way as just about every other travel-obsessed extrovert: Aside from practising my Instagram travel poses, I have consumed loads of carbs mostly from the comfort of my living room couch cushion fort, as one does.

Since then, I have been sharing my own attempts to recreate the lockdown version clichéd travel Instagram pictures on my account. Here are some of the best results.

There are so many travel blogs out there that are crammed full of useful information, perfectly formulated to be picked up by search engines so they can sell people stuff, but completely lacking in soul. There's a part of me that would like to create content like that, but I have never been able to bring myself to do it. Instead, I share some helpful travel tips and a lot of useless but entertaining anecdotes and travel trend commentary.

After the coronavirus pandemic subsides, I am assuming regional travel will open up before international travel. Living in South Africa, the first place I would like to visit is, what is in my opinion, one of South Africa's most iconic landmarks: the giant pineapple in the small town of Bathurst. Having missed my family during isolation, I will invite them to join me. Being the biggest pineapple in the world, I think it can accommodate everyone. Then, I'd like to go to the Namibian desert town of Swakopmund to take post-apocalyptic dystopia-grams in buildings slowly being engulfed by desert sand. Beyond that, I have no plans but I would like to see Colombia and Southeast Asia.
