Quarantine Instagram Captions

One day at a time.

Adventure is calling, but I can’t come to the phone right now.

The only nation I’m visiting this spring is imagination.

Better days will come.

All dressed up with nowhere to go.

Wake me up when we can travel again.

Happy hour! Time for a quaran-tini.

Keep calm and carry on.

Destination: isolation.

This too shall pass.
