Thoughts from Las Terrassas and not sailing in the Greek seas
A week of vacay after working in the weirdest shifts in the weirdest departments due to the covid situation. I would say it is a welcome change. If nothing would have happend my ass would be on a sailing boat on the Greek island at the moment. No feeling bad about it, things are just different.
It is just a matter of how you look at it. Ofcourse I was bummed that there isn't any sailing at the moment. But nothing was lost, I was still emailing with the captain about the trip when a small voice in my head said 'maybe not book this as yet, who knows if maybe Greece will have Covid by then' not knowing that Covid would also be here in Holland way worse, but that is a different thing. I terminated the contact and booking nothing and waited. Two weeks later sh&t started hitting the fan. It turned out wise.
I had some pretty annoying conversations about vacation being cancelled with people around me. Ofcourse it is a bummer, and ofcourse it will cost money, but really...is having your vacay cancelled the worst thing in life? It is money you had already spent, you are not loosing more all of a sudden. And look around your house, isn't there any beauty? I have discovered more around me here than I would even imagine (not entirely fair..I just moved here hahahah)
