Travel Plans . . .Interrupted

Raise your hand if you had some travel plans interrupted this year . . . yup, both my hands are raised. It sucks. I have a hard time just sitting still and not exploring. I really want to get out on all my missed vacations. Luckily, I have been able to rebook two of them for the fall but two of them require borders to be reopened.

Because of those earlier missed trips, I can’t really plan any new trips and that sucks as well. So here I am . . .waiting . . .and waiting . . .for the ability to travel again freely.

So here are 5 memes to show how happy I will be the first day back on my first day of travel. How will you look?

Dreaming of Places (Far Away)

I used to be excited when I would have the off occasion to stay home for a weekend and just hang out. Not anymore. Now I am dreaming of all the places I want to wake up in beside my own room. Is anyone else feeling like this?

Here are 5 places that my dreams are taking me to right now. I can’t wait to explore once the world opens up again!

Staycation Underway

I am guessing everyone is in the middle of or not too far away from either a self-imposed or government imposed staycation for the next couple of weeks. While it seems counterintuitive to someone like me, a very social person; I am choosing to look at it as the opportunity to reset and reconnect.

The pressures we have in order to meet  regular demands on our time, should be lessen and hopefully we will all be able to enjoy what matters most. Hopefully, we will all be able to spend a little more time with family. Maybe engage in those activities we “never get around to doing”. Maybe even start new daily rituals such as reading first thing in the morning or family traditions such as game night every Tuesday evening.

So for my travel post this month, I am giving some suggestions on things to do while you are home. What things have you thought of doing?

  1. Game night
  2. Learn about your family history
  3. Research the area you live in and find out who settled it and how it became what it is today.
  4. Don’t forget to step outside for some sunshine even if you only go as far as your backyard or patio
  5. Spend some time reflecting on where you want your life to go over the next year and make some action plans
