Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this time we all are going through 🧡
Spain has entered into both phase 3 and phase 4, and the borders are open now too. That the borders are open means that the tourists and holiday guests are welcome to visit Spain again ☀️🛬.
How good or bad that is,- I’m actually not sure. I do understand why the government took the solution to open up the borders, it’s because of the economy. The tourists are a big income for the country.
So for so many people that lost their jobs this is a good thing,- they can start working again as long as the tourists and holiday guests are coming to visit.
But I think it will take a tiny bit time before there will be as much tourists and holiday guests as it’s normally is during this time of the year. Many other countries have not open up all their borders yet,- like for example Norway. Tourists and holiday guests from Norway are very welcome to Spain,- but the borders for travelling from Norway to Spain are not recommended before 20. August this year. So I know one thing for sure,- there will not be any of my friends or family from Norway to visit me in July or August this year,- for the first time for 7 years.
An other thing is the virus is still in Spain, and Covid19 too. Spain is not recovered reported from coronavirus and Covid 19. And the government is not totally honest about the “numbers” when it comes to how many that’s still are testing positive on the virus or how many that’s still get Covid19. Maybe that’s just a “government- thing” to not be honest? Just look how it is in the USA for example 🙄.
I’m still not worried to get infected by the virus or get Covid19. I’m still working from my home, something I hope I can continue doing. I’m not very much “out in the society” yet. I do the food shopping and run some necessary errands,- and working, working, working in my home, but I have been meeting a couple of my friends after we “turned” into phase3, and of course, my children 😊.
I need to work as much as I have the possibility to do at the moment, because I actually need to save some money so I can visit a dentist as soon possible 😊. So even we are in phase 3 and it’s so much more freedom then it was just for some few weeks ago, and its sun and summer too,- I need to just wait a bit before I starting socialising more. So,- I’m not very worried to be infected, ….yet….because I’m still in general not surrounded by to many people at the moment 😊.
When it comes to live in phase 4 in Spain the life feels a bit more “normal” now, mostly like it was last year on this time, but just mostly. There’s some differences like to use the mouth and nose cover in the stores, this 2 metre distance and specific numbers of people at like for example at concerts, in the cinema, at the theatre and museums. And in the food store we can go two or three together now as long as we keep the distance from others costumers 🛍. And, yes, the use of plastic gloves in different places too.
It’s also still some restrictions when it comes to be at the beach 🏖.
I haven’t been at the beach yet because it’s a 45 minutes walk down from my home, and a bit longer up again 😅. Its up, up, up the hills. And I’m working too, so it’s easier to use the car to the beach then use my feet, just to save a bit time. I will get my car back this week 😊. My oldest son has now bought his own car 😊. And I’m both looking forward to see my oldest son again as well as get my car back and visit the beach again as well 🏖.
My life in phase 4 is of course a bit different then from when we was in phase 0 😊. I have been visiting a friend of my in his home, something I couldn’t do some weeks ago, and an other friend of my did visit me last week, – something she couldn’t do just some weeks ago 😊. That felt so nice, like a kind of freedom too, to just be able to go out for visiting friends as well as have guests in my home without feeling I did something illegal 😊.
It’s also so nice to just walk around in the centre in the city where I live now. It’s people, it’s life, it’s smells coffee, its laughing and talking, it’s musicand sounds, – and it doesn’t feel like the ghost town it felt like some weeks ago. It didn’t just felt like a ghost town, it was a ghost town. Totally silent, no people, no sounds. Nothing. It was a very, very strange feeling to just run the few errands in the centre during phase 0. I got a feeling of doing something illegal as well as I felt alone in the world, in a strange way.
Well,- the life is slowly coming back to a “new” normal here in Spain, but I’m still not sure how a new normal will be. It’s just to watch, live, wait and see, and do the best of it all 🧡.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡
See you soon 😊
We are in phase 3 in Spain, and the borders are open up too in phase 4 🏖🛬. The life is getting a bit more normal, at the same time as there is a “new” normal “in the way”. How the new normal will be, I don’t know. It’s just to live, watch, wait and see, and try to do the best of it 😊 💚.
