On my visit to Australia in early 2020 I was treated to an unexpected visit to the Quarantine Station in Sydney Harbor created to deal with the Spanish Influenza and more. This was a disturbing experience that made me wonder why I was there. When I returned to the US. I found myself in the middle of a new pandemic.My article Taking a Cue from the Q-Station appeared in Travel World Magazine
The September issue of Travel World Magazine is dedicated to inspirational stories during the pandemic.
I have not been traveling during the pandemic. But, others who have ventured out to Costa Rica, the Rocky Mountains, Flagstaff and many more destinations share there expereinces in this issue of Travel World dedicated to surving the pandemic. I was a little jealous, but feel I have done the right thing for myself.
We all have to decide for ourselves what is the best way to cope with this deadly virus.
I have been enjoying hiking in my own back yard the Santa Monica Mountains and swimming in the Pacific Ocean.
