"I don't pray for results. I just ask that I get the strength to give it my all, and whatever happens happens." ― Coco Gauff
I don't follow sports much, but I love finals because at that point everyone's the best, and it all comes down to mindset and mental strength. This weekend I was in awe of Coco Gauff at the US Open Women's Singles Final. Each rally was a battle, and the indomitable way she sped to return each shot was amazing. So many lessons in that. Challenges can come flying at you over 100 mph, but if you train yourself to see each one as an opportunity you refuse to miss, what an exciting match between you and Life. It inspires you to attempt Great Things too and find your strengths to acheive them.
This week is our Gifted Travel Network "Partner Lounge," when we gather on Zoom to meet with our top vendors and suppliers, and I'm most looking forward to connecting with Experience Morocco for an update on their team and their country. This week was to be the PURE Life Experiences travel show that takes place each year in Marrakesh, and many had arrived when the earthquake hit. Those who chose to stay are doing volunteer work, and the word I'm hearing from Moroccans is they, like Maui, need the return of tourism as soon as possible, just not in the Atlast Mountains for now. Local economies depend on tourism, so don't dash your dreams of visiting Morocco! Instead, please know I work with responsible and reliable tour operators in Morocco who will show you the magic of this place, in the safest and most respectful way, always.
Tomorrow I'm also attending a "cool" travel event organized by The Nordics for meetings and lunch with a range of tourism boards and suppliers across Scandinavia. One of my talented clients is a fused glass artist and about to finalize a delightfully unique and art-filled Danish Design trip to Copenhagen, Aarhus, and Odense with Delta of Scandinavia, who will be there.
If you're considering Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, or even Greenland or the Faroe Islands, let me know soon because they're filling up fast for 2024!
While I've been working on lots of winter breaks the last few days, it's definitely not too soon to plan for 2024. The travel demand is real, and to get the best rates and availability, we need to plan ahead!
In the meantime, happy fall foliage season!
