I’m not the kind of person who likes to carry things around, so normally I don’t even have a bag with me. But when it comes to travel, especially business travel, it’s a different story.
In December 2021, I got covid. It was just before my birthday and before Christmas, and we were coming off the back of having no food in the house because our fridge freezer had had a major gas leak.
I was fine for a bit, and thought it maybe wouldn’t affect me too badly. Then it floored me. I couldn’t get out of bed. I struggled to get upstairs. I was worse than I remember my gran in her 80s (a lifetime chronic smoker with asthma).
