9 countries a year!? That’s a lot. That would sound great if I was a few years younger but not anymore. I think what I’ve realised during this past year is that cultivating relationships is more important than hopping from place to place.
You can always visit these places, provided there isn’t a pandemic! However, you won’t always have the chance to strengthen your relationships with others and form new ones.
I’m sorry to hear your relationship didn’t work out. I had a relationship fall apart when I first started travelling. Unless you both have the same goals, it’s hard to make them work.
