CARE Travel has been making travel dreams come true for more than 18 years. There have been countless events that have rocked the entire travel and hospitality industry. Things such as the financial crisis in 2007, natural disasters that occur all the time worldwide, and many epidemics throughout the years (H1N1, Ebola, Swine Flu, Zika). They have each changed the way we travel and sometimes changed the way we live, much like COVID-19 is doing. Throughout all of these events, one thing has remained consistent… Travel is resilient! There is no stopping the travel bug. At least not long term.
Right now things are drastically different and people aren’t traveling. They’re staying indoors, prioritizing social distancing and adjusting to a temporary “new normal” due to COVID-19. Things are changing quickly right now. Despite staying updated and knowing that the changes we’re implementing daily are helping, know that it’s okay to be disappointed about cancelling a trip. I know several of our CARE Travel agents are!
Many of us are home right now, or hopefully staying home, but know that the act of PLANNING travel puts us in the same peaceful and happy place as BEING in a destination! What an amazing way to prioritize your mental health, just start planning that next vacation. You can bring some joy into your life by taking time to dream about the places you want to go. Remember to place value on your happiness, it contributes to your health!
