A few months ago, I embarked on a three-week pilgrimage throughout the country to visit several often-overlooked historical cities and towns of note. I took this journey, masked, just as the state of emergency was lifted in late March. I did it alone. And it was transformative.

To date, the country has administered over 60 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and is currently inoculating over 1 million residents every day. On that note, we can reasonably assume that it might not be that long before we can all feel comfortable traveling among others again. And perhaps it might not be too soon to begin planning a pilgrimage of your own.
