I believe that COVID-19 came to make us sit down, think, and change our way of doing things.
As soon as lockdown began on March 12, I immediately decided that I would use this time to get involved in activities I had never had the time to do before.
I’ve been assisting my clients by handling their reservations which have had to be cancelled or postponed. I’ve also been in close contact with them and organized virtual activities to help brighten their memories of this strange time.
On Easter Sunday, with the assistance of an art expert from Rome, I was able to organize a virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel through Zoom. About 170 people joined, and it was very exciting to discover and learn details that we would never have learned about on a non-virtual visit.
I received a lot of great feedback from my guests and felt doubly satisfied that I was able to give them a good memory of that special day.
For Mother's Day, I also organized a live interactive talk with an art expert that delved into how the great artists painted their mothers, leading my audience to travel through art, and sharing culture & knowledge with them.
I keep an eye on how each sector of our industry is working to protect travellers and share this information so that they can slowly feel safe enough to travel again.
At this point, I must thank COVID-19 for allowing me to explore new horizons and options!
