During the Coronavirus crisis, Tourism is being hit, all flights are grounded, borders are closed and people are told to #StayHome

We, the Israeli Travel bloggers, are longing to travel again, but until we can fly again, we occupy ourselves with creative projects.

In this venture, which was inspired by a Design school project, we have chosen to express solidarity with countries in the world that were fighting the Covid-19.

Each one of us chose a country s/he misses and created a picture of it from objects belonging to that country.

The results are marvelous, you can judge by yourself.
