Our latest news
We have also really enjoyed the change in seasons and spending time with family too. Another highlight was a Zoom holiday party that we hosted for the travelers who have been on past trips– and who will join future trips — with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. We had 30 people join us on call. A big thanks to those that joined us. We also started a new blog called Vegan Home and Travel which we have been putting a lot of content on. Go check it out in the show notes. It’s still new and a work in progress, but we’re getting there! There certainly have been a lot of really positive experiences from 2020. For us, it hasn’t all been doom and gloom, and in the end it’s often better to focus on the things we gained than those we lost!
Regarding 2021, we feel more positive especially with news of the vaccine. Indeed, it was the news of the vaccine that put us in the headspace to plan for the future a little bit and start talking about travel again. An approach we have to think about is to plan our personal and professional travel and at the same time, not put too much attachment to it which is what we are advising to everyone right now. Indeed, one positive thing about COVID19 is it is giving us a lot of opportunities to practice acceptance. Right?
