Covid

It sounds like you are trying to justify your behavior with traveling during Covid-19. It was selfish behavior where you only cared about yourself and your boredom, justifying it is horrible

This is so informative

It’s beautiful. It’s educational. It’s warm and loving. It’s thought provoking. It challenges you. They challenge each other. They laugh. They cry. (More one than the other) I feel happy to know these stories and lessons every week. 10/10 would recommend.
