A Look Back: My 2020 in Review

It was in the year 2020 when I quit my job. On March 14th 2020, we had a farewell party in Las Vegas. During mid March, I learned of Covid outbreak & stayed quarantined in Las Vegas.

Our house were sold in April and everything was gone except we each had a suitcase & a carry-on & a car. We sold our car right before flying to Aruba on Dec 31st. We couldn’t travel overseas in 2020 as plan due to pandemic so we decided to road trip USA following protocols. We stayed at mostly Airbnbs every month & sometimes hotels for a few days. Looking back, we have covered a lot of ground in one year. It seems like it has been at least 3 years. On top of the places visited that are listed below, we covered 10 US National Parks last year. We should probably called ourselves, “The Crazy Nomad Couple.”
