Easter weekend will be different in 2020, with much of the world in lockdown. But for those of you losing your minds in quarantine, looking for an escape – this guide is for you.
Depending on where in the world you are reading this from, the question is more likely to be; how long you have been under quarantine, rather than if.
As people continue to lose sanity from confinement, the desire to travel anywhere further than the bathroom and back again grows.
That’s why The Daily Bundle has found some great travel destinations for the upcoming Easter weekend.
Swap the Stockholm syndrome of your home for actual Stockholm city.
Not only is Sweden famous for ABBA and Ikea meatballs, it can now add irresponsible pandemic management to the list.
Bars, restaurants, cafes, cinemas, gyms, schools etc remain open, as do its borders to other European countries.
This is fantastic for potential tourists from countries such as Spain or Italy, where the virus has brought life to a standstill. The trip to the supermarket tends to be the day’s highlight for many.
With the total number of cases above 6,000 at time of writing and rising quickly – who knows how long this desirable trip will be available for. So, gimme gimme gimme a plane ticket before midnight.
If the meatballs aren’t your style, and you’re afraid of your trip being cancelled, look no further than Belarus.
There’s nothing quite like a sauna and some vodka to cleanse the mind, body and soul. Or, according to Belarusian strongman Mr Lukashenko, to cure COVID-19.

After such a long time away from the lads, Panama is offering the perfect answer.
