Recap of 2020

2020 Recap

When 2020 started, I imagined it very differently – as most of us probably did. I had many travel plans and different goals. But then, thanks to someone’s dinner in China, we all had to change our aspirations for the year…

I am among the lucky ones that did not feel many of the consequences that Covid brought. I didn’t lose my job; my family survived going through Covid. Sure, I couldn’t travel to the places I wanted to, but I tried to make the best out of it. Together with my boyfriend, I managed to discover more of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. We changed from a plane to a car or a bike, from hotels to sleeping in a tent under the stars, from crowded cities to nature where we could be alone. We stopped planing long-term and started being more spontaneous. Nothing is really sure nowadays, right? 🙂

Covid also made me realize how important family is. I used to take it for granted that I could hop onto a plane, and 1.5 hours later, I would be in Poland. I didn’t even have to plan it. Now it takes me 15 hours to drive there, and most of the time, I don’t even know if the borders will be open when I arrive. I am looking forward to seeing them even more now, and I appreciate the time spent with them. Who knows if and when we will see each other again.

I miss the time when I could just hug my family and friends without being afraid I would end up killing them. To the time where I could be with my family when they are sick. I don’t want to feel powerless again when my family is suffering, not knowing if they will make it.

I hope 2021 will be better than this year and that we will be able to travel the world again soon! 🙂 For now, a small recap of all the amazing places that are close to where I live, but that I probably would not have visited if it was not for Covid 🙂 And yeah, snowboarding in France before the whole lockdown happened 🙂

Happy New Year, and see you soon!
