Travel while you’re able to and don’t put off vacation plans because you never know if you’re going to be able to make it happen in the future.
In your opinion, what is one positive and lasting outcome the pandemic will have on the travel industry?
I think that the pandemic opened the eyes of many travelers to look in their own backyard while seeking out travel destinations. Many tourists have been traveling close to home, specifically within their own provinces during the pandemic to prevent the risk of virus transmission. I think that people will continue to want to learn about the interesting things that their own communities have to offer.
