The year 2020 has really been a challenge for most of us and we cannot wait to go back to normal. When we talk about life before the Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot help but think about traveling and exploring new places. The tourism industry has been worse hit because the world dealt with the virus by quarantining and social distancing, both of which are the polar opposites of what we know as travel. Fortunately, we can say that the worst is over and that we are slowly but gradually going back to the life we lived. Among many other things, the worldwide lockdown and self-quarantine have been a huge challenge to the lovers who stay away, many who stay oceans apart.
With the situation getting better, the distance is decreasing and lovers are reuniting after months. And what other than traveling the world says “I love you” more? And which place can be better than the renowned luxurious restaurants in Dubai for a date with your better half? Seriously, we cannot think of anything more beautiful than the view of the setting Sun from a high rooftop, while you sip on some vintage wine while talking about the simpler and beautiful parts of each other’s lives.
