I think most people will agree that it will be good to get 2020 over and done with. In the main, we have been pretty fortunate not to have suffered the pain and anguish that many have endured. The lockdowns and restrictions have been frustrating but we have not suffered the deaths of anyone close us, nor has our livelihood been trashed.
My wife and I have a couple of (hopefully minor) ongoing health issues and my father has dementia which has deteriorated badly in recent months. Of course, my camper van was written off through no fault of my own, which was pretty annoying, but not in the same league as the calamities of others.
We have had some other positive events in our lives, which I don’t want to make public. From a blogging perspective, the main frustration has been not being able to go go backpacking much. With only two trips this year, it has been my least active year for some time. Let’s hope next year is better.
