Since the coronavirus lockdown was eased I've been to Tenerife, Turkey and now I'm in Corfu, Greece.

I didn't have any worries over going abroad or travelling, but I did have anxiety about the unknown. I didn't know what to expect. But I'm glad that I took the plunge and went away to Tenerife, my first trip, because it wasn't bad at all.

You put a mask on in the airplane, you take it off when you eat. There were some people not wearing masks in the airport.

But loads of people are travelling, the flight was totally booked. There's anxiety in the unknown, but I think anyone who wants to travel should just go for it.

I've always been into travelling, I love it. I'm not scared of catching covid-19, number one, and I'd rather be out and be free.

We have limited freedom in our country with what we can do – but being abroad gives me that sense of freedom.

It's also for my mental health. I love being in the sun and doing what I want. We're born to be free.

I had a bit of fear on how the country I was travelling to was dealing with the coronavirus, but in each place it's been fine – you wear a mask in the taxi and everything.

I had a cotton mask and some disposal ones for the flight – but I find the cotton one gives you spots and is really just for fashion. I always bring hand sanitiser with me. I haven't really done anything different, to be honest.

I had some trouble with booking my hotels. I booked a place but it turned out they weren't even open and they still took my money, so then the travel company rebooked my dates for another hotel without asking me.

Coincidentally, I had booked the same hotel, so I was double booked!

I think you need to book directly with the hotel. I don't think people should book via a third party right now.

To prepare for a trip, look up regulations of the country you're travelling to, check the restrictions, check if there are any track and trace forms you'll need to fill out and have faith.

So many people have been cooped up and are still so scared. What I would say to them is carpe diem, which means 'seize the moment'.

We're here in the moment and we need to take it all in.
