Guilty Pleasures

I used to hear or read where a lot of people I know were off to some exotic island or Hawaii. In earlier times I lived overseas and enjoyed traveling. I’ve visited and lived among castles, Swiss chalets, pyramids, the Jordan River, French towers, and done the hula in Honolulu. Glad I got to do all that. I wonder what people are doing in these crazy pandemic and financial times to get in their travel fix and have something to share on social media.
