A Socially Distanced Bank Holiday

Usually during May bank holiday I team up with Days of Adventure to embark upon a crazy expedition. Our previous pursuits have included: cycling 189 km along Hadrians wall, hiking miles on end along the Cotsworlds Way, cycling round the Isle of White and hiking The Ridgeway National Trail.

This bank holiday has been somewhat different. The current pandemic has kept us all at home and altered the way we live. While, it has been difficult it has made us grateful for what we have and made us appreciate the smaller things in life.

I’m eternally grateful for having somewhere safe to live and feel lucky to have supportive family and friends.

An analogy I recently heard sums up our current situation well. It is as follows; there is a storm that is affecting all human-kind across the world. Some of us are on boats that are sturdy and surviving, while others of us are being swept up by the fierce current.

During this troublesome time it is important to help those that need it and count our blessings.

While, we can’t do what we usually would this bank holiday, there are some things we can still appreciate. The sun has been shining and we are now allowed to meet friends at a social distance.

Yesterday I met up with Days of Adventure, we cycled from each of our homes separately to Buckingham Palace, enjoyed a socially distanced catch up in St Jame’s park before cycling home.


Things are slowly moving in the right direction.

What has everyone else been up to this bank holiday weekend?
