“This pandemic has definitely shifted the meaning of vacation for me,” said Natasha Lopez, one of the stars of the HBO series “The Time Traveler’s Wife.” “Being in New York the

entire time has been tough, especially during the winter. But it gave me a new sense of adventure and spontaneity. I did road trips upstate, went apple picking and enjoyed the sights. I have enjoyed discovering different parks and taking the New York City ferry when the weather is nice and it feels like a vacay to me.” Lopez shares photos of her work, travels and workouts on Instagram (

Q: If you had to cancel travel plans due to this pandemic, where were they to?

A: My Christmas family vacation to California and it was so sad. We had

plans of doing road trips and seeing the vineyards. It was the first time that we (would have been) able to get the whole fam together for a trip in years, even pre-pandemic. I was ready to leave the cold and be with my family. I hope we can reschedule that soon.

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?


A: Puerto Rico! So I may be biased – I was born and raised there – but I swear every time

I go, I keep finding new things to see and do. If you are staying in the San Juan area you must visit El Yunque National Forest and Old San Juan. The food is insane. If you are

staying on the west side, make sure to go to Gozalandia in San Sebastian for incredible

waterfalls. Also, the best beaches in Puerto Rico are on the west, in my opinion.
