Very unusual times for all of us. I hope that you are all keeping well and safe. Four weeks ago, I arrived in Thailand where there were only 16 recorded cases of COVID-19.
Two weeks later, when my flight home was due, the number had risen to over 900!

On return to the UK, that’s when it hit, with just how quiet the roads were on the drive home from the airport.
