When this is all over I will...

What is everyone looking forward to doing once this is all over that they can't do now?

Do whatever I want or can get away with without being incarcerated.

According to all the news all they can get the public to do is to flatten the curve. Thus it's likely I will get Covid-19 and become a statistic in survivability regardless of my actions.

Go to the pub and have a pint with my friends.

Going down the pub is high on my list of things to do, as is going on holiday, or just out for a meal.

Absolutely what tread said.

Oh, and taking the Warrior for a flap over the Isle-of-Wight with a possible stop at Sandown for a bacon butty.

Those two things combined (by suitably determined time between each one to ensure fitness to do either) will make me feel normality has returned.

Until then, I remain, a caged bird.

Pub with mates and partner, meal with partner, holiday with family, work. Oh, and climb a mountain.

1) Visit my mother and other elderly relatives, give them all big hugs (if safe to do so etcj

2) Go for a pint with my friends, meet my friend’s firstborn who only arrived at the start of this mess.

3) Do a LOT of travelling to support my colleagues in the airlines, and see parts of the world as far from the 2km restriction zone around my home as possible.

Yes, see friends and family. Hug.

Have a nice leisurely sit-down meal at a local restaurant.

I also want to snorkle along a beautiful reef somewhere. Vacationed in St Johns in the Virgin Islands in my youth going gaga over the coral and colorful fish in pristine waters. Said hello at a polite distance to several barracuda. They let me know immediately when I got a little too close.

Hurricanes have swept through that area, and reefs world-wide suffer from increased acidity, so I'd like to know what's a good place to go for a similar experience once this is all over.

Shake hands. Never realized how important shaking hands is in the social construct. To others it may not be as important.

Plan a vacation, two or three actually.

It will never be over.
This is with us forever, like the common cold. That's my guess.
(Very much hope to be wrong on this.) How this thing mutates over the next few years will inform how that works out.

Bunaken Island, North Sulawesi - on neap tides.
Just don't expect Club Med.
It's all about the snorkelling / diving.
Safe snorkelling along the edge of coastal reefs.
You get to see the big ones while only being 5M from waist deep water.

I want to go flying! Skills must be decaying fast, medical is coming due and it will be a PITA if it expires.


But other than that, I have to confess that as an extreme introvert, I'm loving it. In some ways I am not looking forward to lifting restrictions, I find virtual meetings so much more productive, relaxed and enjoyable than having to do all that silly small talk and mysterious social stuff. Am I weird ? OK, rephrase that, how weird am I?

Hoping they'll open the trans-Tasman travel bubble while there's still some of the white stuff left.
