2020 Changed Everything. Or Did It?

2020 changed everything for travelers.

Or did it?

According to the US Travel Association, the majority of American travelers are in a “ready to travel state of mind” and 63% have plans to travel in the next 5 months.

This sentiment reveals something profound and moving about our fond and deep desire to connect to the world.

How vividly we all remember the excitement of receiving our first passport. The anticipation of our first trip abroad. The wonderment of embarking on a bold new adventure.

Mostly we remember how traveling for the first time brought such joy and meaning that it became a way of life.

A recent article in The Economist admonishes: post-pandemic life is not to be hoarded, but to be lived. In that spirit, what could be more fitting than to venture forth again for the first time?

Indeed, 2020 changed how and when many of us will once again spread our wings. But did it change everything? Quite the contrary. Although we’re temporarily on pause, nothing will ever infect or impact our love of travel. In that we are steadfast.
