Status: Travel planning on hold

Without much travelling happening later, it’s been hard to keep a frequent posting agenda here. I had made myself the promise that having less travelling at the start of the year wouldn’t stop me from posting. Afterall I live in London and there is so many subjects to photograph in this city. And then, my travel plans will come nearer and I’ll be able to share my experiences in the blogosphere.

Oh well. Every single weekend there is something. Either it’s a storm, either I have to work, either need to focus on something else, have friends visiting or I’m ill. And in a blink of an eye, we’ve reached March. And while that would mean I would be closer to make my trips happening, the whole Coronavirus scene has blown up and I’m just waiting for the moment I’ll actually have to cancel my trips. So yeah, 2020 has been off to a rough start, which can be quite depressing. Lately I feel I have been swimming against the tide. I try to think positive. When something goes wrong, I keep thinking there is something coming that will make it better. But guess what. It never seems to happen. Even when I think I’ve got it under control, the truth is we never do. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one feeling hopeless these days. But somehow I feel better when writing it down.

Here’s the situation. I get all excited about my travel plans and I start researching and planning in advance. It’s often my “so looking forward after work hobby”. But now, I’ve suspended all my planning. It’s all on hold, and I feel that’s exactly how my life is. Of course I have more than my travelling agenda to hold on to. But let’s say that part of my life is somehow what makes it worth living. So while I understand this is a first world problem, and that may sound incredibly selfish of me to worry so much about that when there are people dying and so on, I feel entitled to feel sad. Because at the end of day, I’m just a human being  🤷🏻‍♀️

Still, writing here, sharing my photographs, my stories, my experiences, my feelings is something that not only brings me some happiness but is good for me. Even if there are no readers. I write to myself primarily. So, for the next few weeks, I’ll continue to post. Perhaps I’ll go and find my favourite pics of last 5 years. That would be a wonderful trip down the memory lane.

Anyone else with me? 🙂
