As we arm ourselves with facts about vaccines, boosters, variants, and immunities, one thing is perfectly clear: we must each decide for ourselves what is best. Misinformation, distrust, and disillusionment are rampant, making it difficult to know what to believe.
It is also increasingly clear that COVID-19 has forced us to confront the preciousness of time. And because the value of time is different for all of us, there is no right answer for this one either.
When the trip we originally booked in 2019 for May 2020 was cancelled and rescheduled for May 2021 which was cancelled and rescheduled for October 2021, was finally NOT cancelled, the decision whether or not to travel was easy! Yes, please!
There are no guarantees in life so when something you love is finally allowed to happen, you jump at the chance… well, that’s what we did anyway. Some will call us irresponsible; some will wonder what took us so long, but the preciousness of time (and assorted other factors) has dictated that this time – right now – is right for us! So, I’ll see you in a few weeks with new stories about what it was like to travel again!
