As the big pause in travel continues, I find myself straddling that line between restlessness and settling in. Looking back, 2019 was when I traveled more than I did in the past.

Lockdowns in the Philippines started at midnight on March 15, 2020 in Metro Manila. Other cities across the country followed soon after.
