Dear Highway to Hoeftland readers,
In November, 2020 our friends invited Mike and I to go with them on a Mexican Cruise. We thought that by January, 2022, the global pandemic would be in the rear view mirror and it could give us something to look forward to. So we booked the trip.
Fast forward to late December/early January and the Omicron variant was making everything challenging again.
Our cruise was already booked and the window to cancel had passed. We decided to mask up and go ahead with the cruise, despite the CDC, news articles, and everyone on Twitter advising against it.
We felt very lucky that the trip went (mostly) well and that we got to spend time with our friends, the Karps, who we hadn’t seen in two years.
Our flight was canceled from RDM to PDX, so we braved the snowy mountain range and headed off towards Portland so that we could fly to LAX. Once in LA, we boarded our Mexican Cruise adventure. Below is our video about the trip.
I hope you have a safe and healthy new year.
Sincerely, Kristin 🤗
