By PINKY S. ICAMEN Published Jul 16, 2021 8:21 pm

If you’ve been scrolling through social media, you must be salivating with envy as you notice that a lot of celebrities are starting to jet off to both local and international destinations.

As more countries are opening up to tourists (most of them accepting fully vaccinated travelers), movement for leisure is slowly greasing up the long-halted tourism industry.

Though the threats of COVID-19 are still around us, more people are getting confident of going out because more individuals are getting inoculated and number of cases are slowly going down for some countries.

To tickle your wanderlust, as we hope and wait for better days to come, check out these celebs who are spending their holidays abroad right now—from Switzerland and Italy, to the US and Dubai.

Sarah Lahbati, together with her sons Zion and Kai, and mom Esther, flew to Switzerland in late June to finally reunite with her father, Abdel, after more than a year of being apart.

Sarah enjoyed Geneva with her sons, and after a few weeks, her husband Richard Gutierrez joined them.

The family is off to a Swiss adventure, starting in Lausanne, where they took a walking tour of the city and a lunch cruise on Lake Geneva.

They also went to Martigny to visit Fondation Barry, where the family enjoyed their time with the adorable St. Bernards, before heading to the Swiss Alps.

On their way to Zermatt, they took the luxurious Glacier Express, a bucket list experience for many travelers. In her photo aboard the train, Sarah said, “The journey between St. Moritz and Zermatt has been a feast for the senses and the most memorable trip ever.”

The newest Kapuso actress Bea Alonzo is currently in the US, exploring California.

Bea is sharing her trip on Instagram with the hashtag #Btravels—from sightseeing in Los Angeles, driving to Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea, and checking out the beach in Malibu.

In one of her recent posts, Bea became reflective. “Stop and smell the roses,” she began.

“When I used to catch this phrase, I could never really understand what it truly means. When I was younger, I used to always chase my dreams, always in a hurry, not entirely absorbing and savoring the things that were happening around me. I was set to achieve my goals, and slowly, I did.”

“But now, looking back, I wish I could've taken the time to enjoy every moment, every victory, every pain, and every milestone. So, today I want to be more mindful and urge myself to take time to smell the roses and savor every moment.”

And indeed, that’s what Bea is doing right now in her travels, away from the fast-paced life in show businesses—spending some time to smell the roses and savoring every moment of her journey.

Rhian Ramos walked the streets of Paris in style despite the downpour in the city. “Rainy day in Paris,” she captioned her post with a photo of her using her coat to shield herself from the rain.

In her Instagram Stories, it looked like Rhian explored the city—from being in awe of the gorgeous 19th-century La Samaritaine department store to strolling on Place Vendome, and enjoying a Nutella crepe as she explored Paris.

The family has been out and about after travel restrictions were slowly eased for international and domestic travels.

Doctors Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho and their daughter Scarlet Snow rang in the new year in Kenya. And recently, they were out in Bohol to explore the island together with the Department of Tourism.

Currently, the family is enjoying their time in Paris. Just like Rhian Ramos, they got caught in the rain, too, but the downpour did not prevent them from exploring the city.

They went to the charming amusement park, Jardin d’Acclimatization, where Scarlet tried different rides.

The family also spent some time at the Place des Vosges for a stroll. What’s an overseas trip without shopping? They did theirs at Hermès and Gucci.

As they their trip to Paris on social media, Vicki encourages their followers, especially to those who are looking at travelling outside the country, to get fully vaccinated first.

It looks like Bela Padilla is having a grand time in her Euro trip with her Swiss-Italian boyfriend Norman Bay.

Bela’s been soaking the sun while on their trip—swimming in Lago di Lugano in Switzerland, and in Bagno Delle Donne in Italy. Bella and Norman also explored Florence via a guided walking tour.

In one of the Florence photos that Bela posted on Instagram, eagle-eyed fans saw a ring on her finger and speculated that the actress and her beau are already married. Bela quickly denied the speculation and reiterated that she was wearing her own ring in the photo.

In March, the couple reunited in Turkey and spent some time in Cappadocia and Antalya.

Yassi Pressman

Yassi Pressman and her sister Issa are currently in the US. They left Manila in June and with the first photo Yassi posted on Instagram that showed she was out of the country was a caption “This little girl right here is fully vaccinated!”

While in California, Yassi met a few stars, including NBA player Damian Lillard, who donated a “generous amount” to the fire-stricken Philippine General Hospital. She also caught up with rapper Offset while shopping at the Gucci store on Rodeo Drive.

Yassi also met up with Manny Pacquiao who is currently training for August fight with Errol Spence Jr.

The actress looked like she was having a great time with her sister as they explored Venice Beach and hiked  Runyon Canyon.

Maggie Wilson Consunji

Pre-pandemic, Maggie Wilson Consunji was shuttling between Manila and Bali quite regularly for her interior design studio Acasa Manila.

As more countries have eased their restrictions, Maggie, together with husband Victor Consunji and son Connor, packed up their suitcases and started their journey.

So far, they have been to Bali, Mexico, the US, the Bahamas, and currently in Dubai. Maggie’s gorgeous beach photos (and beach body) make us miss the beach even more.

An avid diver, Maggie was able to tick a box in her bucket list as she was able to dive on of the hauntingly beautiful cenotes of Tulum.
