It’s been an attention-grabbing few months of tentative journey after spending many of the earlier 12 months caught in and close to my house. My first tentative post-vaccination journey was an extended weekend in Washington D.C. again in March, which I wrote about. After which comparable journeys to the Boston space and New York Metropolis, which I didn’t. Throughout that point interval, I acquired my second vaccination, after which my spouse and children have been all vaccinated twice as nicely. We’re prepared for the long run.
These early post-vaccination journeys have been curiously comparable in that all of them concerned driving, not flying, and have been to locations which we all know nicely. It’s attention-grabbing to me that, by means of no particular plan or settlement, my spouse and I very particularly revisited locations with which we have been already acquainted as a substitute of attempting something new. It has, in any case, been nicely over a 12 months since we’ve been capable of go to these locations safely. However since these journeys, I found that this can be a regular human situation: As CNN reported not too long ago, this sense of familiarity helps to reassert a way of normalcy after a 12 months that was, by any measure, utterly out of whack.
