This isn't really a post about how we wined and dined in Crete. Nor is it about how I dominated our rounds of Uno at various bars (I am checking to see if my friends actually read my posts, with this statement :D). Nor is it or how we basked in 29-30 degree sunshine for a week. This post is about the differences, the new restrictions and observations I made between pre and post pandemic travel.
We are all looking at ways to cut our carbon footprint, so when you arrive in a new city the best way to see it is on foot. This way you get more time to experience the historical locations with a tour guide who is full of knowledge and ready to answer your questions, whilst helping to save our beautiful planet.
We're delighted to announce that we partnered with Touriosity a new marketing consortium with one aim: to help tour operators and activity providers drive more direct bookings without paying heavy commissions or content curation fees.
Light at the end of the tunnel?
We set-up the full time operation of Toristy almost a year to the day (after about a year of part time R&D) and what a year it has been. Even though my career to date has had its fair share of adversity I've never witnessed what we're seeing today.
I was impressed with the coming together of the attendees of Arival when it was postponed last weekend due to the Coronavirus. Many people were stranded or in Berlin anyway but one thing I've learned about the travel industry is people help each other in times of crisis.
