"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. ...live in the question." ― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet New Year's Eve and Day are normally my favorite holidays, the laying to rest of the past and honoring its lessons while looking ahead to a year of blank calendar pages waiting to be filled with as-yet unwritten events. While a new year is inherently full of surprise and uncertainty, 2021 has unique challenges as well as opportunities. So many places in NYC I've loved for years have temporarily or permanently closed their doors, and 2021 will literally be a new year - full of new developments, new openings, new healthcare advances, new reunions, new appreciation, new ways of being, and certainly new ways of traveling to experience it all. How do I run a travel business in a time of delayed travel plans and deferred adventures? My goal in this moment for Nine Muses Travel is to reaffirm I'm here for you as a valued travel resource, inspiration, advisor, and advocate. I have strong, enduring relationships with financially vetted, reliable suppliers who've doubled down on customer service and enhanced not only safety and cleanliness protocols but also flexibility with their terms and conditions relating to changes and cancellations. My job is to not only help you plan the best travel experiences, tailored to your unique interests and preferences, but to protect your travel investments, as well. You choose Nine Muses Travel because I always have my finger on the pulse of which companies are best suited for your future travel plans. All across the world I have colleagues on the ground, and you are never left to fend for yourself. You get 24/7 support when you work with me, and I not only present trip protection plan coverage to you but also medical evacuation coverage that will bring you from across the world right to your home hospital in the event of an unforeseen emergency. We've all heard the 2020 horror stories of travelers left stranded by online booking sites, and when you work with me, you get the opposite - someone in your corner 100% of the way from the time you hire me until you return home to your front door. You know by now how much I believe in the transformative power of travel. Changing your world, however briefly, can change your whole life. I've got amazing ideas for exploring nature, national parks, wellness spas, and adventures outdoors to fill up every season from this winter to next - in addition to highlighting local arts and culture, history, and cuisine. I am here to help you heal from 2020 and give you some incredibly positive reasons to feel a sense of fun and discovery about the future. Just imagine where you wish you could go in 2021.... Then tell me all about it! Try sharing your ideas with the form I recently added at ninemusestravel.com/contact to start envisioning how to make those dream journeys a future reality and fill a happy year with the new!
