Nature can teach us so many things. Let us just observe, keep calm for a while and watch how nature interacts, solves, develops, continues a path, or creates a new one if something gets across. At this very moment we can be tangled up. We might not know where direction to choose, which decisions to take, if we even should move or not. Nature must be telling us, hey make a pause! On the other side, we are so used to the pressure and most of the time worried about timings, we might be thinking in hurrying up….
Last year, the crazy 2020, the forecast for tourism was that all trips that were to be done in 2020 would move to 2021, but now, as we encounter 2021, all trips are now being moved to 2022 or cancelled at all… So… what we should do as tourism professionals? Should we do movements? Plan ahead? Wait? Get prepared?
For sure, and because our hearts tell us that, people want to travel, explore, discover, and experience. The thing is that all has been brought to a standstill due to government restrictions, health care, and current conditions. Let us listen to our hearts and plan ahead, no hurries, no pressure, because it is in human hearts to share, to communicate, to socialize and to interact. Nature works always finding a way to continue life. We, as humans, will figure out our way, a new way of living, were we will give priority to our feelings, to common benefits, because it is our world and humanity we are saving.
When we start traveling again, my guess, is that, we will raise our consciousness in being fair, in respect others opinions, in learning from other cultures, in enjoying every beautiful moment we are given. Late connections? Strike in a city? Rain? Hotel fully booked? All these circumstances are part of the adventure. We will untangle so easy by finding alternatives, change our mood, talk to another unknown traveler who soon will come a friend.
