Cabin fever got us dreaming about our next getaway, hasn’t it? Thanks to COVID-19, or sometimes known as Miss Rona, our last trip feels like a distant holiday.
Picture this: Your plane just landed and you can’t wait to kick off your long-anticipated trip. Next thing you know, all major cities in the world are reporting COVID-19 cases, and the numbers keep rising…
Phase 1: Wake Up in the Sky
Fresh off the plane, you’re ready to conquer the new city. Wherever you are, China, Ibiza or Alaska – everything is bright and shiny – you’re filled with anticipation for the day.
Songs: It’s You, Trip, Wake Up in the Sky, Alaska, I Took A Pill In Ibiza, Princess of China
Phase 2: Lost in the City
Hold on, the first news of a confirmed COVID-19 patient in the city. The number starts to rise and you’re wondering, “Is time to head home?”. Every city takes its turn to go into complete lockdown. You’re scrambling to book a flight back home.
Songs: Lost in Japan, I Can’t Return, Never Go Back
Phase 3: Border on Control
What a nightmare! You’ve finally managed to get on a plane en route to Singapore. You drop a text to your family and friends to let them know that you’re on your way home. Local immigration borders have never been stricter, and you’ve got a Stay-Home Notice as a welcome gift.
Songs: Border On Control, Hold On We’re Going Home, Quarantine Dreaming
Phase 4: Modern Loneliness
The idea of staying home could be a chore. Staying in bed didn’t seem great anymore. And it becomes tedious to think of what to eat for your next meal. Finding the right home routine takes time, but we’re getting there.
Songs: Modern Loneliness, Oh My God, Help Me Lose My Mind, Supalonely, no tears left to cry
Phase 5: Come Through
… and stay at home to party in the living room. House Party and organised group Zoom calls help keep our mental health in check. We pick up home workouts, dust up the odd storage corners in the room, and suddenly become MasterChefs in the kitchen. It’s going to get better, Trooper!
Songs: comethru, Can’t Stop The Feeling, Cake By The Ocean, Let’s Fall in Love for the Night
