The coronavirus is still lingering in 2021 which is affecting travel plans and a return to normal. Airlines and hotels have made adjustments however I believe it will be some time before we get completely back to 'normal'. I've resumed flying and trips (thrilled!) though wouldn't be surprised if there are adjustments through the fall.
It hasn't been easy to plan travel or see family over the past year - I'm optimistic that we are on a good track as countries around the world reopen. Here's hoping I can still get back to the Maldives in November and Europe in October for a conference presentation!
