Lockdown restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic meant travel abroad was strictly limited but I discovered that exploring my local area could be just as rewarding. I spent some time walking around the pretty, traditional English village of Shenley. And I discovered a fascinating river walk beyond the shopping malls of Watford. Both these places are in the English county of Hertfordshire. I did manage a brief sojourn in Latvia and its capital Riga before lockdown closed us down again. Guided travel articles of these destinations are now available on GPSmyCity.com.

Life During a Coronavirus Pandemic: Week 63 A Walking Weekend
The thought of leading my first tour for over a year keeps my spirits up during week 62 of the coronavirus pandemic. This week brings more bad news as the Indian virus – now referred to as the delta virus that originated in India – is spreading quickly and has become the predominant COVID-19 mutation in the UK. England’s exit from lockdown forecast for 21 June is now looking unlikely. With no new destinations on the green list and the removal of Portugal from that list a staycation seems to be the only option for a summer holiday this year.
