At the first opportunity, I will be travelling again, as soon as it’s safe.
I have various autoimmune problems, so I am not taking any chances. I don’t want anything else. Even worse, I could be asymptomatic, and the last thing I would ever want to do is infect someone else.
My Bucket List is typed, on a sheet of A4, in single-line spacing… there is so much to do and so little time.
- The Maldives,
- The USA
- The Caribbean
- The Hay Festival
- Glamping at Glastonbury
You name it. I want to do it, see it, touch it and experience it.
LIFE AFTER COVID-19 (or at least, life after the COVID-19 vaccine)
I had plans to organise a friend’s 60th Birthday trip to Borneo in 2021, but I am not sure that will happen now. I couldn’t go there without witnessing the wonderful work they do at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, and I don’t suppose, because of COVID-19, they are super-excited about inviting homo sapiens from far-flung places into the centre. So maybe, it will be a belated birthday celebration.
As soon as I hit the road, air, or sea, I will be heading for the Temperus Restaurante Beach Bar at Praia do Trafal, in The Algarve, where I have spent some of the happiest times in my life. I haven’t been since August 2019 and have chronic withdrawal symptoms.
Once we get there, we will be having the longest-awaited celebratory post-COVID-19 lunch, as once more, we are free to travel undaunted.
Where will you be headed?
