Revised: 

I wanted to, but because of the illness, I gave up. I wanted to go to NB for a trip, but we have to go there by train so I decided against it. They moved to SH. They found another job here. So for this year we can only talk to them on wechat. It is convenient for me to go back/go home so going back for CNY is not necessary. My cousin wanted to come to SH but she also gave up on this idea. She wanted to come here for a trip.
