London Marathon 2020 – What Was It Like Inside the Bubble?

The easy option was to quit, to throw this year’s London Marathon into the garbage, and start looking ahead to 2021. It’s what most World Marathon Majors did—and who could blame them, given the global pandemic?

Seven months ago, the Tokyo Marathon hosted an elite-only race on March 1. Ten days after that race, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. For many months, the world’s best marathoners saw few competitive lights on the horizon.

Want The Most Luxurious Vacation For Your Bubble? Buy Out A Heli-Ski Lodge

This winter marks North America’s first full cold season in the midst of COVID-19. Where the onset of the pandemic abruptly closed many heliski lodges last March, those same lodges have been working for months to put new health and safety protocols, according to the most updated requirements from medical experts, in place to welcome guests back this winter.

One of the emerging trends in the industry is an option to buy out the entire heliski experience for you and your chosen bubble of people. Where you would normally be sharing a helicopter and the lodge with other groups, and might even be skiing with people outside your party, some operations are now emphasizing full lodge buyouts to give their guests the most comfort and assurance possible. These are some of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for the most luxurious ski vacations on offer.

Covid 19 coronavirus: Transtasman travel bubble within weeks – Australian reports

A travel bubble between New Zealand and New South Wales could be open within weeks, according to reports out of Australia.

But travel inside the bubble would initially only be one-way with Kiwis heading to Australia, and restricted to those living in the South Island.

With community outbreaks of coronavirus in hand both here and in the premier state, the federal government would initially only allow for Kiwi residents to come to Australia, according to a report from the Sunday Telegraph.

Those travellers wouldn’t be required to quarantine once they arrived in Australia.

It’s expected New South Wales residents would later be able to also travel here by Christmas time.

This morning Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told TVNZ1’s Breakfast this morning a state-by-state trans-Tasman bubble was “possible” before Christmas.
