Exactly one week ago today, I returned from a short trip to the US. For the first time in years, I was coming home with no plans made for my next expedition. This was not due to the Coronavirus – I just never got our April vacation sorted so reckoned on probably going somewhere in western Europe which could be booked at any time. We were talking about a few options for the summer so nothing was done about that either.
A lot has changed in the past week – the first cases have reached Ireland, St. Patrick’s Festival has been cancelled and don’t start me on toilet rolls!! I’m so glad now that I don’t have to make decisions about cancelling or not cancelling prepaid trips or flights. I don’t envy those of you in that position.
I wondered about my blog and what to do if we have to weather a very long restricted period. I’ve made a ‘to do’ list for myself:
Write about the last US trip
Finish writing about other recent trips that I didn’t get around to completing at the time.
Look back through old photos and write short pieces about particular attractions, sights, etc.
Finally get my act together and embrace social media!
Go local – write short pieces about Dublin and its attractions.
Write about historical sites around the country.
Write about Dublin walking trails.
Categorise and back up every photo in the house.
Source free photo sites etc.
Read all the WordPress articles and hints that I really, really should have done at the beginning!
Tidy up my website.
To all you fellow travelers, stay safe in the coming weeks and keep planning! We will all need something to look forward to.
