I would but I have a strong background in risk assessment & managing/using protective barriers.A "friend" on Facebook suggested it irresponsible of me to return home as I'll be running a higher risk of contracting coronavirus via terminals, planes or travel in general. After manufacturing a small voodoo doll in her image and subjecting it to all manner of inconvenience, I considered she may have a point.
Should one stay put where they are if traveling for the greater good?
Yes fair points, I was just saying it from my own perspective, enough language to converse with medics and family here plus my medical support is BPJSBut staying here is in itself also already a risk, esp. if you're by yourself. And if something would occur, the medical support and treatment would be much better in Australia. And last but not least, in the worst case scenario I would not want to get sick in a foreign country where I couldn't speak the language and without family and friends...
Glad you are (almost?) on your way home.Flight delayed until 8pm, but I'm through immigration and in the terminal. Images of that chap stuck in diplomatic limbo inside Charles De Gaulle a few years ago aside, I feel we may get out tonight.
Horror stories of travellers perpetually buying tickets out to have the airline cancel hours later. Some people are now now completely broke and at the mercy of their embassy having spent their last funds on unethical airlines who aren't flying but still accepting bookings via web pages.
Personally, yes it's been an often frustrating endeavour trying to get home, but I have to admit Jetstar did show some humanity by putting its passengers up in a very nice hotel with a $AU50 F&B credit as some form of compensation for their previous cancellation, as well as departure terminal money for a couple of drinks, which is more than some airlines appear to be doing.
So congratulations. And where is home anyway?Home!! And what a wonderful surprise I had waiting.
My friend converted her art studio into an isolation unit complete with fridge, bed, table and chairs, stove, cutlery etc....as well as fourteen days worth of home cooked meals, disinfectant, hand sanitisers, masks and a guitar. I'm really quite touched that she'd rearrange her studio in such a way for me.
