Lockdown Adventures

It’s Easter 2020, and we haven’t left the house in three weeks. Our city of Sydney, Australia, has been locked down to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. My family has been working from home, studying from home, socialising via videoconference, and having all supplies dropped off at the front gate.

Obviously, our travel plans for the Easter school holidays will not be going ahead.

But that doesn’t mean that we won’t still be exploring — we’ll just have bring the world to our living room instead. My little boys have come up with a lockdown adventure wishlist that spans the globe. We will be exploring via themed craft, games, decorations, webcams and food. And we’ve built our own little cardboard aeroplane to get us there.

Join us! And please share your experiences with us by commenting, or via email or social media if you can — home isolation is far less lonely when shared.

The Great Wall of China

We’re visiting Beijing, where we will learn Shaolin Kung Fu and build our own Great Wall to fend off invaders!

Great Barrier Reef, Australia

The first stop on our Lockdown Adventure is Queensland, Australia, where we’ll be exploring the world-famous Great Barrier Reef.

Ancient Egypt

We’re exploring the mystery and magic of Ancient Egypt, and visiting bazaars that teem with treasure and life.

Kings Day in the Netherlands

The last stop on our Easter 2020 Lockdown Adventure is one that is near and dear to our hearts: the Netherlands, which we once called home.
