All the delightful things millions of people are doing nowadays, that’s daily routine for seafarers when they come home. Spending whole day with family, waking up late, lazy days, cooking new dishes, watching Netflix, playing cards, endless talks. And yes, going out only to buy essential things.
Most of the people got “work from home”, but seafarers are still serving their duty! They will tell you easily, that they are at safest place as per today’s situation.
