It’s been a hard year but at long last the Summer Holidays are here! Here’s a selection of websites to help you enjoy your break –
Holiday safely in the time of COVID-19
Read Daily Maverick’s “How to go on holiday safely in the time of Covid-19: A practical guide” here for some thoughts on how to travel to your holiday destination, what to do on arrival, and how to have fun – all with minimal risk.
Dodging the dangers – an interactive graphic
Then from Spain (which knows a thing or two about this virus!) comes an interactive and somewhat alarming graphic showing how Covid-19 spreads through the air, how transmission works, and how you can avoid it.
See “A room, a bar and a classroom: how the coronavirus is spread through the air” on the El País website here.
And Now for Something Completely Different – “Tax Can Be Fun!” and Other Online Curiosities
“What a strange world we live in” said Alice to the Queen of Hearts (Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland)
Finally, after such a surreal and challenging year let’s follow through with a few of the many strange webpages out there.
For a start here’s one that’s definitely worth a visit, and it comes courtesy of our very own SARS (not the virus 😀) on its “Tax Can Be Fun!” page.
“Curiouser and curiouser”, cried Alice
To end, a whole collection of strange webpages (warning: there is some really interesting, even useful, stuff here – but you are about to waste a lot of time prospecting for the gems!) on The Black Stump’s “Latest Bizarre, Oddball and Weird Sites” webpage.
