Not everyone wants to travel just for reasons of tourism


CWe should be very wary and acknowledg­e this is a pretty messed up toy promotion

ovid has cut into us like a knife. Feeling the love of kinfolk during a pandemic is nothing short of a miracle.

We are all too quick to judge those yearning to travel as mere tourist wishes. Travel restrictio­ns separate families and partners causing severe consequenc­es to mental health. Movements such as ‘Love is Not Tourism’ is a global network of over 47,000 people campaignin­g to help reunite families and couples who have been forcibly separated by the travel ban.

Giving people the border brush-off and labelling them as greedy for wanting to travel undermines the pain and individual concerns of others who are struggling to cope and feeling a deep sense of loss and seclusion.
