2020 has been a crazy year am I right? It certainly has changed our approach to travel!
This definitely wasn’t the year we expected it to be. We haven’t even flown the entire year! We haven’t eaten inside of a restaurant since early March. And, to be honest, had you told us that our only trips this year would be a long weekend in the Smoky Mountains and a week in Vermont…we would’ve been disappointed. Look, we’re glad we had those experiences and loved our trips, but it just wasn’t what we had in mind for 2020 travel.
But we must adapt. Travel will one day return to normal again, and we’ll be jet setting to places near and far. However, many of us will be changed from this year. I’ll likely start wearing masks on planes and public transport each cold and flu season. Wiping down airplane seats will be the norm. And even prioritizing bucket list trips may be a thing as who knows when travel will be taken from us again?
We talk about this and more in this podcast episode about how 2020 has changed us and our approach to travel now and in the future.
