Every conversation that lasts longer than an hour that I’ve had since Ohio opened up shop has turned to travel plans- where can I go? Am I feeling the beach or the forest? How much time do I need off? But in 2020 unfortunately we also have to consider cancellation policies since access to amenities like restaurant service and operating hotels are hit or miss all over the country right now. The current restrictions are thankfully a temporary frustration, with advances in treatment protocols for covid-19 patients getting more hopeful with each development. But that doesn’t remedy our impatience to pack our bags in the now. Finding ways to unwind in 2020 has made me consider what it is we love so much about vacations. Obviously, the time off work to rest and reset plays a big part, and the time to connect with your partner is awesome, but those are things you can do without going far at all.
