Bellion Travels Monthly Recap: April 2020

Ramadan started and I’m finding it very difficult. Like, I’m not able to meet my family because of lock down. The curfew is at 10 PM and Iftar is at 7 PM and I still don’t trust staying at a hotel with all of this going on.

Working from home got extended to 21st May 2020 and honestly, I’m not looking forward to working from the office anytime soon. I found myself productive at home and I always have the energy to cook. I hate washing dishes though even with a dishwasher.

My update for the month of April is just about Movies and Series that I have watched while at staying at home.

So here is my April Quarantine Update.
