    This week I boarded a flight, landed in Ibiza and checked in to a hotel with a rooftop pool. Something I did not expect to be doing in 2020. Ibiza is now open to tourists, slowly life returns to something normal. I’ll be honest, positive feelings have been few and far between throughout 2020, but I am trying to fix my focus on something to look forward to.
