Outdoors Travel

Biking in the Southwest


Did an indoor bike workout watching this and had a real strong moment of sadness and mild despair that I don’t know when I’ll be able to travel again. Last year we did a desperation mini “road trip” in a rented camper, this year after being vaccinated I thought we’d be able to go somewhere but I haven’t felt safe yet. Feeling dispirited again with this new variant. My sister pointed out that when the pandemic started I was relieved at saving myself all the effort and logistics of planning a trip — I do a *lot* of research and have a hard time making decisions — but I’m feeling like it would be worth it right now.

Have to say after that I kind of tuned it out and focused on the music so couldn’t say if this was a good or bad one 🤷‍♀️
