Throwback Thursday – I Miss Traveling

I so miss traveling.  I miss exploring new areas that I’ve read about or have had on my bucket list for awhile but all of that came to a screeching halt this year.  Mind you, there has been some traveling to parts of the state where we live (Ohio) that otherwise might not have been explored which has been fun.

And there are even more places in house to explore once they reopen or are open to more people or we just get around to driving there; which seems to be the best mode of traveling nowadays.  Having your own camper/trailer might be even better.  Have to let those experts expound on that mode of getting around as I’ve never done it.

But even with driving, I’ve been made aware that there are some states that are considered “hot spots” for the virus and if you have traveled there recently it is suggested you self quarantine for 14 days.  It’s mandatory if you are going to see a doctor as I found out the other day when going in for my super duper flu shot.

Not going to explain “super duper” but I haven’t been anywhere so I got the shot.  Ouch!

Sigh… I am feeling a bit melancholy this morning, but none the less thankful that things while difficult sometimes are good, I’m posting some memories of when our wanderlust was at full speed.  We will all be able to travel again one day… just wondering how that will be?

    Yeah, it’s definitely been a challenging year and with everyone jumping on the RV bandwagon, travel via RV has presented even more challenges. Great collections of images showcasing your travels.

    • Thanks. Great memories but how has the RV life been more challenging this year?

      • Ingrid says:

        There’s record breaking numbers of RV sales making it crowded at state parks, etc. I was unable to book any reservations for the summer last February. I’ll be starting the process a lot early for next summer. Plus, some newbies are screwing up with not cleaning up after themselves properly having rangers close down access to areas.

      • I knew about the sales and crowding but I suppose people being jerks and not doing what’s right should come as no surprise too.

    Such a lovely selection. thanks for sharing. many places I don’t know. The US is so big. I only know a few spots. Rather well, I think, but a handful.
    Don’t worry. Travel will come back. My son-in-law, a Doctor, tells me there are close to 200 vaccines/treatment under test now. One will come out.
    Let’s keep hope burning…🙏🏻

  4. I hear you and also want to get out there again. Nice set of images.
