29-years old Eva Zu Beck from Poland has revealed how she struggled to find a way to leave the island after she stuck down on Yemen Island due to coronavirus Pandemic. She said 2020 has been a crazy ride for her.
She arrived on Socotra in the Arabian Sea on a commercial flight from Cairo in early March. Eva ended up stuck because of travel restrictions on Island.
Because the coronavirus flights were not allowed on the island the only option was to sail to Oman. But Eva believed that this option was risky due to the health crisis.
She spent weeks searching for a way to leave the Island before being granted passage on a cargo ship to the Middle East. Eva said: “2020 was a roller coaster of a year. It hasn’t even ended yet.”
She said this pandemic has changed the lives of people to some degree. Eva disclosed that at the beginning of the year she was working on a travel show for TV that’s now delayed after further notice. All of the trip she had planned for the year has been canceled.
Blogger talked about how she stuck on the island. She said: “At the beginning of March, she found herself on the island of Socotra in Yemen and she stayed on the island for the next 80 days.”
Eva said: “I am so lucky and blessed to have been there on that incredible island. The island was surrounded by really kind and generous people. I’m so so privileged.”
The political situation was slowly deteriorating there and the worst scenario was the monsoon season. The wind was so so strong that they cut off the island from the rest of the world.
Eva said: “I knew that if I stayed on the island, I ran the risk of being stuck there until the autumn.”
Since the beginning of May, she and her friends tried their best to find a way home. There was no coronavirus on the island. But to protect people from coronavirus on the Island there were limited travel options.
After several weeks of struggle, they were allowed to take a cargo ship to Abu Dhabi, UAE.
