as the Covid restrictions seem to ease in certain places in the world we’ve decided to be brave and begin travelling again.

We’re very careful about masking. We are confident that we can travel again. Thumbs up to traveling again! SIR5R is traveling again! Certain things do demand travel despite the Covid-19 Pandemic.
