August 11, 2020 – Someday this whole wretched Covid experience is going to be behind us. Just when – nobody knows – dependent on when we start to take it seriously, get an effective vaccine, a cure, or heaven help us, herd immunity. So when that happy day comes, we want to know – where are you going to go on your first trip!
Perhaps it will be family related. Your editor is going to get on a plane and visit his grandchildren in California. After that, it might be somewhere far away that is high on our bucket list. New Zealand, Scandinavia, Ireland – they are all possibilities. A cruise – probably not right away.
For some people that first trip might be something simple – a hike in a state park, a trip to the beach, or a visit to some national parks. Maybe we can’t actually travel right now, but we sure can dream – and plan. It might also be a good time to book something far into the future. The travel industry is in terrible trouble right now. Most tour operators and airlines are probably willing to allow free changes in order to get a commitment now.
