This year was exhausting and many of us are feeling worn out and have a latent sense of sadness. That said, am totally against the idea that everyone should travel in their home country - that's just more step into small-national-state thinking. If we can afford to, we should go to the countries which need solidarity. So pack your bags and head to Italy and Spain!
