We Said Go Travel Summer News DC (During #COVID19) June 2020


June News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:

Welcome to Summer COVID-19. I have been in Los Angeles since March 9, 2020. That is 112 days. It is the longest I have been in one place that I can remember.

I never imagined there would be a summer with no planned trips, no summer camp and masks required.

What have I been doing? During my walks around the block and now on Santa Monica beach, I have been practicing taking photos with my new phone, #LGV60ThinQ.

I have been working to amplify voices on my site and was honored to publish remarks from my Rabbi on Juneteenth.

Thank you to Gus, PADI, Beaches Resorts, Mike and ScubaNation TV! I loved dancing underwater on Scuba at Beaches Turks and Caicos with Gus! Thank you to Dive-In with Padi for including me and Mike for filming our impromtu underwater moment at 70 feet. Thanks also to my dive buddy, Michael, for the dramatic ending! Learn more about my travels at Beaches Resorts in Jan 2020.

Guess What! Superman Saved my Girl Scout Troop! I was on the Caped Wonder Superman podcast talking about when we filmed in 1978!

I have also been sharing about books on We Said Go Travel including: Cheryl Strayed’s Brave Enough, Leslie Blodgett’s Pretty Good Advice:For People Who Dream Big and Work Harder, Mitch Albom’s Finding Chika: A Little Girl, an Earthquake, and the Making of a Family and Jodi Picout and Samantha van Leer’s Between the Lines.
