A Wander Less Year

Looking back at last year I found that it was a wander less year.

I definitely did less wandering than in years before.

United 787, KIX, Osaka Airport, Kansai Internation Airport, United AirlinesLast year I did not take a single flight. I am trying to remember the last time that happened. There have been a few years with only a couple flights, but none without flights for a very long time.

Sydney Harbour - February 2014 - Winter Olympics Sochi - Winter Olympics in SummerI did have a trip planned early last year as I had courses scheduled in Sydney, Australia. However, the trip was canceled in late February as travel started shutting down.

plug in hybrid, car, gas, fill-upI have also not wandered very far by car. I last filled my tank on March 6 of last year and still have 3/4 of that tank left. It was only about a week after I filled the tank that we entered the first shelter in place. Because of this I still have less than 4,500 miles on my car which is now just a bit over a year old.

Thinking back, I don’t think my car has been more than 30 miles from home since I purchased it.

dublin office, six months away, covid-19Instead of a daily commute to the office when not traveling I have been working from home.

Since the middle of last March I have only been to the office one time.

Winco, Covid 19, essential trip, grocery store, shelter in placeThe furthest I wander from home now is the grocery store, which is just a bit further away than the library.

Of course, this only applies to physical wandering.

My mind still wanders all over the place πŸ™‚
