I'm planning my post pandemic adventures now. It's helping to keep my isolation anxiety in check by making positive plans. Looking forward to visiting my family in another state and taking some short trips around my own state to explore close to home.
What's on your post pandemic list of things to do?
Prior to the pandemic, my life goal was to visit all 50 US states. Now I'm terrified at the thought of visiting a red state. I do most shopping online to avoid crowds (covid and shootings). The main reason for any in-store shopping in the future will be for my son's clothes (sensory issues). Once a week we would go out to eat but we haven't been out since March. I too miss date nights, my kink events, and my son's waiver. However, we've been doing virtual events and I'm not sure how much that will change when this is over.
I chose travel.
I was just watching a few YouTube videos on the travel by road from Tashkent (Uzbekistan) to Kabul (Afghanistan) to Lahore (Pakistan) and fly back to the US. I have reached out to some people in Tashkent and Samarkand and am waiting for responses.
I have read and heard that the route is beautiful through the mountains and the adventure through the picturesque valleys is one to remember. Many invasions came from Central Asia into India since 1150 and I would like to see and imagine how armies, soldiers, horses, elephants walked that treacherous route 900 years ago. I want to cover all historic monuments also. I have been reading about it since middle school. I am ready to go as soon as the travel restrictions are lifted. My last trip to Uzbekistan was very enjoyable.
