As another week of quarantine goes by, it’s safe to say that we could all use some humour right about now.
While the coronavirus situation is far from funny, travellers have been making light of the situation with some creative executions on various social media platforms to cope with their wanderlust.
Here’s a round-up of some of our favourite travel memes we’ve seen on social so far:
This TikToker re-created one of our favourite things: Flying. And honestly, he had us fooled for a hot second. Needless to say, we can’t wait to get back to the skies.
Who said you have to leave your house to travel? All you need is an Instagram account and you can go 12 places with the swipe of a finger, like this guy.
Award availability is off the charts right now. That is, in your own home. The best part? So many choices, so much… time. Where are you headed next?

It’s no surprise that here at TPG, we’ve got staffers all over the world. But even though we may be hundreds of miles apart, we’re still staying connected. Show us how you are by using the #TPGpaperplanechallenge hashtag on TikTok.

And of course, we’re keeping up with our training to ensure that no flights will be missed once travel resumes:
La Rotonda de Sofa is where you can catch us this weekend:
Now boarding for Netflix with a quick layover on Twitter:
And to sum how we’re all feeling right now, we’ll let this little girl do the talking.
Travel may look a bit different right now — and we certainly appreciate some good humour to lighten things up — but on a serious note, here’s some things you may want to consider if you’re booking future travel. Looking ahead, we’re betting things there’s going to be some changes in the travel industry.
