I am looking into the distance whilst the airplane is flying in the other direction. In lockdown we have been missing the chance to go on holiday (or move about as we are used to). We have imagined, as we always do, the perfect holiday, perfect weather, activities, hotel, dream location. BUT- will that next holiday been the same as always, when the best bit is the anticipation. The reality is we miss our home comforts, people, pets and count the days until we go home. Will this be the same? Will we be more appreciative of what we have? Have we changed? Are we still looking in the wrong direction?
