When was your last destination vacation? Mine was in 2019. It was a girls’ trip to Aruba with one of my dearest friends, and it was glorious. Four days of beach, blue water and blue skies, shopping, good food and great conversation while sipping cocktails beneath a big umbrella.
And like so many, my 2020 vacation plans were put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Staying home rose to new levels with the restrictions imposed on travel and businesses needing to curb numbers to significantly decrease the spread of the virus. It was a year of face masks, hand sanitizers and self-discovery. While I didn’t go stir-crazy, I missed the fun of planning and anticipating the experiences created with a new adventure.
March 2021 marked one year since the COVID-19 pandemic began and that several vaccines have been rolled out across the world. I received the Pfizer vaccine and with the vaccination of millions to create herd community is needed for greater protection, I’m hopeful that my traveling blues will be cured by the end of the year.
A 2020 trip to South Carolina for an annual breast cancer walk was cancelled and is scheduled to be in Hilton Head this October. My bestie invited my son and me on an eight-day cruise to the Bahamas scheduled to sail in November. I’m keeping prayers raised and my fingers crossed!
