Many of you may hear me talk about all the emails I get daily. It is 9:30 am and I have already 54. Some are political and one is personal, from my sister. The majority are mostly for me to tell you what is happening here and there. A new hotel in Chile or a tour in Croatia. Who knows what all will be when we can travel? I am not interested in encouraging your traveling anywhere right now. We all need to stay home so we all can travel again. Meanwhile I continue to take webinars on how the industry will change and destinations you may like to explore.
The Boston Globe has a section called Talking Points. It is amazing how much is about the travel and hospitality industry. Today alone; “Lufthansa to cut more staff, sideline more jets as travel ends with summer; Cruise industry looking to test all guests and crew in order to set sail again; Airbus unveils three designs for hydrogen powered planes; And lastly for today’s Talking Points.. Whistle blower says more changes needed to retooled 737 Max.” Do you have any idea how many 737 Max planes there are grounded? At least 387!
Beyond this section are articles on the west coast wildfires and how they hurt tourism, Hurricane Sally and more are destroying beaches and property, Deaths due to the Pandemic pass 200,000 keeping US citizens within our borders, the airline industry, hospitality, and travel agencies in dire economic straits.
It is a wonder I still get out of bed and read the paper! We will survive! We will travel again! We may experience a tour in Croatia. Meanwhile we do need to stay home, always stay distant and wear our masks outside our homes.
PS Last Friday I did my 5th and 6th domestic tickets since the first of March. It was fun to use my brain!
