A letter from the founders
An update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Written by Duncan Over
It seems strange to think how fast the world has changed over the last few months. We want to let you know that our main priority at this stage is to make sure our clients remain safe, through regular contact with our partners on the ground and a thorough understanding of rapidly changing WHO and FCO guidance.
It’s a tough time for all of us with a love of travel and we understand that few will be looking to head abroad in the near future. While we cannot predict what will happen in the next few weeks, we are focusing on creating trips for our clients to take when the time is right. As those of you who have travelled with us before know, we like to get to know our clients’ interests and personalities before we craft their adventures and are regularly tasked with devising bespoke itineraries for sabbaticals, big celebrations and multi-year travel programmes far into the future. The silver lining – spending the time now to plan journeys months or years in the future will result in some incredible adventures, and we are here if you would like to get the ball rolling on your long-term travel plans and aspirations.
Before the coronavirus crisis, we were working on a new-look newsletter to highlight some of the incredible stories we have garnered from around the world and the first issue is due out at the end of this month. Do look out for it: hopefully, it will offer some escapism and help you continue to dream in these uncertain times. If you have any stories that you are particularly interested in please let us know and we will look to include them and do our best to keep you inspired while at home.
In the meantime, if you need help deciding where to go, are wondering whether to put off your trip or simply want to have a chat, we’re here to help and would love to hear from you. We will get through this together and as soon as it’s safe to do so, get back out there and keep exploring our beautiful world.
Please stay safe and look after yourself, family and friends.
Henry & Duncan
