What to do when you miss travelling

Imagine . . .

You planned for years . . .

You researched destinations and set aside funds . . .

You sold your home and whittled down belongings to the bare essentials . . .

At last, you set out for two years of world travel . . .

And then, a world pandemic hits.

That’s what happened to my friend from The Long Road Home. She and her husband planned to spend two years exploring the world, but COVID-19 made their long road home much shorter.

The mental adjustment to the abrupt change in plans has been tough, but she’s trying to cope with good humour, as you can see from this video in which her treadmill becomes an airport conveyor belt and moving sidewalk.

I invite you to read her other posts too. Kathryn is a journalist, so she knows how to ask good questions and spin a tale out of the answers.

Many suitcases lined up
This is our family collection of suitcases. We are equipped to travel . . . as soon as it is safe to do so.

Surrender to the wind

If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it.

I am away skiing in Revelstoke, BC this week.

We’ve already had to surrender to the wind. The ski lifts couldn’t open until 11:00 yesterday due to high winds.

We surrendered and took a ride into some extra reading time.

Plenty of time to take pictures while we waited for the wind to die down.
