I am away on holiday this week in beautiful Arizona and staying with my sister and her husband! It is the first time being away since March 2020, when I was presenting at the Pacific Dental Conference in Vancouver. It sure felt great to be at the airport again, even though my luggage was lost for a while prior to flying. I had to go to a 'special' area while they searched for my luggage. Thankfully they found it as I had a lot of my favourite and personal items in the suitcase. Still, it felt good to be back at Pearson Airport! This incident would have had me stressed pre March 2020; however, again, just going with the ebbs and flows of life.
It is weird to think of 'time' over the last couple of years. 2 years have passed since flying somewhere. From January to March 2020, I had already taken 4 trips and now 2 years have passed and it is the first time flying! I saw a post from an old friend who went back to work and on her desk was her calendar flipped to March 2020. So strange, right? It doesn't feel like 2 years ago and at the same time feels like ages ago. It is time to get back to being with the land of the living. I was ready just to stay home. "I like my home and have no need to go anywhere", is what I told my friend who was visiting a couple of weeks ago. My friend said "Kath, you have to go and get back to exploring and living"! I know many people who feel the same as me and not ready to take the leap.
She was right! It feels so good to be out travelling again. I am still careful with wearing a mask and social distancing, etc. It just feels good to be back to some kind of normalcy.
Where will your next trip be? What adventure will you be embarking on?!
