Taken for Granted

After 6 weeks of virtual lockdown, I’m reading the tea leaves and thinking we may never get back to what we had before.  I’ll be missing….

  1.  stepping into an almost full elevator and using crowded escalators, especially at airports,
  2.  being a member of an audience,
  3. going to the grocery store without wearing a mask,
  4. greeting family members and friends with a hug,
  5. crossing an international border,
  6. going to Italy, England, Australia, etc.,
  7. watching a parade,
  8. getting in an Uber vehicle or a rental car or taxi and going to an attraction,
  9. flying to visit grandkids,  I’ve heard rumors that American and United will not make it back to prosperity and may have to declare bankruptcy.
  10. washing my hands about 10 times a day, staying in hotels, using public transportation, etc.

Since the beginning, I've had to avoid writing about the downside of travel in order to sell more than 100 articles. Just because something negative happened doesn't mean your trip was ruined. But tell that to publishers who are into 5-star cruise and tropical beach fantasies. I want to tell what happened on my way to the beach, and it may not have been all that pleasant. My number one rule of the road is...today's disaster is tomorrow's great story. My travel experiences have appeared in about twenty magazines and newspapers. I've been in all 50 states more than once and more than 50 countries. Ruth and I love to travel internationally--Japan, Canada, China, Argentina, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, etc. Within the next 2 years we will have visited all of the European countries. But our favorite destination is Australia. Ruth and I have been there 9 times. I've written a book about Australia's Outback, ALONE NEAR ALICE, which is available through both Amazon & Barnes & Noble. My first fictional work, MOVING FORWARD, GETTING NOWHERE, has recently been posted on Amazon. It's a contemporary, hopefully funny re-telling of The Odyssey. View all posts by roads-rus
