  1. Fantastic! That first TikTok video is incredibly creative and looks quite realistic at first. I also liked the keyworker with his furloughed mates… haha! :) :)

  2. I still can’t get over that first tiktok video and just had to re-share! It’s a great collection of fun travel stuff. I also like that new airport code. I actually now would like to go to BTH, then later to MNC if time permits.

  3. Being light-hearted about it all is probably one of the only things that carries me through the days lately. With everything that’s going on in the world, having a good attitude has to be solidified to make sure that you’re ready for getting through uncertainty. And that’s a tough lesson, but it sure helps to laugh a bit.

  4. Haha, some of these memes really did make me laugh out loud. It feels good to have a smile these days. I do a lot of scrolling through social media, and when I see something like this, it makes me feel better for sure. In a very silly way, which is fine by me!
