First and for sure, I will just rediscover County Galway. We live in such a beautiful county that I won’t feel the need to go further at the beginning of a back to normal life. Kinvara, Barna, Spiddal and Clifden are places I’m dreaming about since the start of this pandemic. But even just being able to enjoy Galway City’s life, its delicious restaurants, its fantastic views full of life will make me happy. When life is normal again, I will, without a doubt, visit other Irish counties. I would love to go to Cork and Dublin but also visit County Donegal and basically every gem place on this beautiful island of ours. I would love to travel the world with my partner and our daughter, to go to my home-country France again, to walk in Paris and just enjoy the nice free feeling of being able to travel and hang around everywhere we want. It feels so special and precious nowadays that I’m wondering when it would be fully possible. I would love to go to Morocco, to visit the Sahara and learn about their beautiful culture and taste their specialities. Travel the world would be one of my main targets.
But, to be honest, the main things I miss terribly are the simple things. To be able to go to the cinema and theatre, to go to the museum and stay hours learning about cultures and art. To go to concerts and festivals, to just have those very human moments back would be magical. Our lives considerably changed in 2020, and I hope we will all be careful to be able to make it happen again. To have our freedom back as it’s so important for our evolution and happiness. I want to see people smile and dance again, and I want to see children happier and able to make birthday parties again, to do activities and live their childhood normally. I want our government to make the right choices, I want them to think about the people and their feelings. I want the vaccine to be safe and available for everyone who wants it.
Our freedom, our normal lives will be back, but we have to be patient. So let’s make it possible, wear a mask, keep your distance and take care of yourself in these difficult times. Let’s recharge our batteries fully before normality is back, so we will enjoy it the best we can, as a celebration of life, a celebration to our freedom.
