Wow! – What a year it has been! Never in our lifetimes has the whole world faced such challenges as it has in 2020. Like many industries, the world of travel was absolutely turned upside down, with every possible facet feeling the effects of sheltering–in–place and closed borders. Much of the world is still closed to us now, but that will eventually change as we move through 2021. The desire for new experiences motivates us even now to look into the future with great anticipation of our next great travel adventure.
Here’s a great quote from travel writer Bill Bryson –
“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”
Unfortunately, much of this year has been Groundhog Day – over and over again with the scenery rarely changing, as we patiently and hopefully – safely wait for our next opportunity to experience everyday things as if for the first time.
Many of us have had more than our share of challenges and tragedies in 2020. We’re not complaining though as we’ve also had more than our share of blessings this year!
The travel business is still in a severe downturn, yet we remain steadfast in our resolve to go beyond our current circumstances and get to a brighter future. We are look forward to the great reward that travel truly is and we know you are doing the same. Despite the obstacles, we remain open, available, willing and more than excited to help you plan your next great adventure.
We know many of you are waiting for the world to return to normal before making plans. We get it. Don’t forget though that travel brings joys before during and after your trip. The joy of sharing travel memories with friends and loved ones, the great joy of the journey itself and the joy of anticipation from planning your next great trip.
When you’re ready again to take that first step – planning – give us a call, we’re here for you – same as we’ve been for the last 21 years.
