Hello, 2021…

And just like that, January is over and we still cannot travel! Looks like traveling will be a thing of the past in the next few months or even year/s. We still don’t have the vaccine in our shores. Not that I am particularly excited to get it. I can wait until they include some other strains in the vaccine. As they say, save the best for last!

Anyway, I would like try to travel domestically just to visit other places but restrictions are still aplenty. Plus you need to be covid tested if you plan to fly. Then at work, we have to get permission to travel to another place. And leave credits will be used for quarantine time, if any. Upon return, you have to get a doctor’s clearance to go back to the office. It’s a lot of hassle to travel even within our country and so much more if you are traveling abroad.

Maybe, I should post throwbacks? I miss traveling. I want to go back to Japan! I miss that country. Maybe, Fukuoka and Nagasaki will be the next destination. Whenever I read emails of airline ticket sale, I get excited until I remembered that we are still in a pandemic. Hopefully, borders will soon open once a lot of people have taken their vaccine. And I hope we will also be allowed to travel without restrictions!

For now, let’s relax in our own home. For people working from home, try to take a break every hour. Even for just a minute to two to rest the eyes or stretch the arms. Try to find something to do as well aside from a marathon of Netflix shows during the weekend. Take a walk and enjoy life. Don’t forget to wear your mask! Remember, if you are reading this then you are a lucky person because you are still alive!

xoxo,
