The Lives of Women: When Dreams of Travel Come True

COVID-19 held most people hostage to their small apartments for over a year. During this time some people picked up new hobbies and crafts and learned of new ways to socialize and engage from afar. Many of us developed travel dreams of far away places we'd like to visit after quarantine. Here, two women visiting Ponta Delgada, Azores carry on with the normal activities of window shopping while taking a stroll through Azorian side streets. Such simplicity would typically be unremarkable, but in light of the ease of travel restrictions and the proliferation of the vaccine, normal travel activities in far away places are a true gift.
