Somehow it has been six months since my last blog post, and an update is well overdue. Writing in mid-May, COVID felt like something that would be "over and done with" within a matter of months, especially in Australia where cases where diminishing fast. As the year went on, our hopes that COVID would just be a minor blip slowly turned into acceptance that we would not be able to complete the trip as originally planned.
We knew our trip would have many unexpected twists and turns, but having to put the trip on hold for a global pandemic was certainly not something we imagined happening. In our last blog we had just arrived into Singapore, completing the first leg of our journey. Five months later, we have still not been able to properly start leg two. Here's a little update of what we've been doing between then and now.
