OK, I’m not going to go on about this and cry in my beer, but just when travel was opening up for me as a welcome opportunity once again, the damned Covid virus has become the latest curveball in the ballgame, and it looks like it’s gonna shut it all down.
You see, the government has just come out with a strong advisory to avoid any non-essential travel. Now, if you weren’t planning a trip anywhere, you may not even be aware of this change. And let me be clear: I can’t say I disagree with it. This is likely the right thing to do. But truth be told, I’m just so disappointed that my trip to Antigua with my friend that we’d scheduled for January now looks like it will end up DOA. And that’s a drag. Especially when we’ve both had our third vaccinations and been negative in two PCR tests.
Yeah, OK, so we did get to have two amazing weeks in Saint Lucia in November, and I suppose I shouldn’t be greedy. (After nearly five years of self-imposed no travel – I just knew I wouldn’t enjoy going on a trip by myself – it was wonderful to travel with my friend and get back to my favorite Caribbean island.) Still, a trip south in late January was gonna be just right to beat away old man winter. But no, the Omicron variant is gathering force and getting governments everywhere to re-impose restrictions of all kinds, travel included. Damn!
Alright, the rant is over. I’ll be quiet now.
