My Pandemic Year in Travel

This week was my 27th birthday. How did I get here? It seemed to creep up so quickly. I remember this time last year the pandemic was in full swing with restaurants, bars and attractions closed. Friends and family couldn’t travel to see one another, and people were unsure how life was going to unfold in the next year, let alone the next day.
