For the most part, we are living our lives during the CV19 ‘Lockdown’ without a lot of issues. We are blessed. Fortunately, most of the activities that we enjoy this time of year are outside and that’s about the best place you can be to stay safe and keep others safe.
Everyday, in my Facebook ‘History’ feed, I see pictures pop up from great trips we’ve taken the last few summers: last year’s Los Angeles trip, our trip to Israel & Petra, highlights of Tokyo & Kyoto, and two weeks driving through Scotland & England. These trips are part of what we budgeted for in FIRE, but we are definitely not spending to budget in 2020.

Of course, we always say the summer in Minnesota is beautiful, so why not stay close to home?
We did decide to take a small trip in a few weeks to celebrate our Thirtieth Anniversary. We’re going to go up to Minnesota’s North Shore and maybe ‘collect’ a few more waterfalls. I’ve been discovering and photographing a waterfall every week since the start of the pandemic.
It’s not a glamorous overseas trip, but it should be fun.

Anyone else planning on taking a ‘mini vacation’ any time soon?
