COVID-19 changed life as we know it.  Sheltering in place, self-isolating, and social distancing are among the measures we take to do our part to curb the spread of this dreaded disease. As days turn into weeks and continue into months of staying at home, we may occasionally feel restless and yearn for days when we can travel again.

The past weeks have been disorienting, to say the least. Everything seemed to have happened at a fast pace with many countries now affected by COVID-19. Everyday life is disrupted. People are told to stay at home and practice social distancing to help curb the spread of the disease. But staying at home indefinitely is something that not everyone adapts quickly or easily to.

In the past months, I have followed the news and seen how the Wuhan Coronavirus (a.k.a. 2019-nCoV), which was later named as COVID-19, has swept across the world.
