Good-bye 2020: We Said Go Travel News Dec 2020

 

Dec News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:

As the ten years of 2020 begins to end, this quote from the movie, The Martian, seems very apt: “At some point, everything’s gonna go south on you… everything’s going to go south and you’re going to say, this is it. This is how I end. Now you can either accept that, or you can get to work. That’s all it is. You just begin. You do the math. You solve one problem… and you solve the next one… and then the next. And If you solve enough problems, you get to come home.” Mark Whatney, The Martian

I hope we have solved enough problems together! I put together a post of all my articles, posts and interviews from 2020 and another one which is a decade of my content 2010-2020!

2020 has been a year filled uncertainty and changes. Michael Jordan said: “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” We have to keep practicing, keep going, keep taking chances and making things HAPPEN!
