I want to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
I want to walk around it’s white marble and leaning arches and pretend like I’m holding it up with one hand.
I want to see the Eiffel Tower.
I want to ride the elevator up and up and up into the sky while watching the City Of Light become smaller as I rise.
I want to see the Roman Colosseum.
I want to walk where people once gathered to watch the spectacle of combat and imagine the Naumachia, where the Colosseum would be flooded and naval battles held.
I want to swim in the cerulean waters of Santorini.
I want to feel the cool waters all around me and watch the white and blue and pink palette of colors on the buildings bob onshore.
I want to see the world.
Hear its natural sounds in the jungles and mountains. Hear the sound of a toucan call, an elephant in the distance, the crack of a glacier.
I want to eat in cafés.
I want to look at a menu and not know what any of it means. Then order something and enjoy the new flavors and aromas and leave not knowing what I even ate.
I want to meet new people.
I want to walk down a new street looking for, nothing. Then meet a local who can point me in the right direction.
I want to learn new words.
Food words. Swear words. Words that I can use. Some I probably shouldn’t. Words to describe the sunset. Words to say Hello/Goodbye/Thank you for letting me visit.
I want to do all of these and more.
But what I want to see the most, right now, is for all of us to remember to take care of each other.
To Stay Home.
Wash our hands.
Wear a mask.
Stay 6 feet apart.
Until this, all of this, gets better. So we can see it all together.

Love this and love you!
This is just perfect! Staying at home and helping to flatten the curve is all we can really do right now. And I want to travel and see many places too. Stay safe and take care
Thanks for reading! I’m so happy you enjoyed. You’re right, we do need to stay and flatten the curve. Stay in good health and safe travels.
