May 9th, 2020

Greetings from Thailand!

Another week has passed and that puts us closer to the end of this restricted lives we find ourselves living and closer to freedom! Sometimes the only way out is through it, and that's the situation we find ourselves in. Let's keep our thoughts on possibility and not limitation, and not give in to the negativity.

One Does Not Simply Stop The Chelsea Flower Show

May 9th, 2020

There were two ways to look at this.

Greetings from Thailand!

I'm going to try to avoid using the C-word for this newsletter as we're all a bit oversubscribed to updates involving that...let's keep our vigilance up and mindsets positive, and keep our thoughts towards better days when we're past these ones.

Greetings from Thailand!

I've been spending lots of time on the phone checking in with members of our travel community over the past few weeks, both to see how you're all doing and to stay busy myself 🙂

The importance of fresh air + upcoming webinars!

April 18th, 2020

Greetings from Thailand!

I took the opportunity today to take a little trip outside where there are no other people (we've gotta stay the course!) after spending most of the past week at home, and I was reminded of the restorative power of fresh air and the outdoors.

What our community had to say in our first Virtual Coffee Connection!

April 11th, 2020

Just a brief note today to recap our first Virtual Coffee Connection that we had this past Thursday.

It was really nice to see all the faces and smiles from our community all over the country, and to hear the general optimism from travellers unable to do what we love most!

There were a number of interesting questions posed during the call about insurance, what will be needed for people to travel again, the cruise industry, and so on.
