From the Desk of Heather Christopher: May Updates

We’ve made it to mid-May 🍾! This month’s update is coming to you in video form. You can check it out below:


Sick of video? Here are some quick overall notes from what I went over above:

  1. My hours: not a huge change from before but my hours are 100% appointment only now because #threekids. 
  2. Bucket list planning is going to need to be done further in advance with accommodations having lower occupancy levels + stricter occupancy levels at popular historical sights!  This will shake out more in the coming months.
  3. I still believe Caribbean will open up this summer/Hawaii 50/50 shot for late summer/early fall and other destinations I’m at 40-45% chance after August 😉 We’ll have a better idea again in a few weeks. 
  4. Going forward, what to expect from HCTC in terms of buying travel: Cancel for any reason insurance, more terms + conditions, along with box checking and a signature that you read. 
  5. Covid-19 details on the destination you’re headed in your final itinerary documents so you as best prepared as possible. 

Thank you for your continued support – I am so grateful for you. Let me know if there are any additional questions I can answer and, when you’re ready, how I can help you plan your next, much-deserved trip!

My go-to is the Body Shop’s hemp hand cream, it’s the only thing that cures my dry winter hands. But I’d be up for trying any of these – any faves that you buy the travel size to take with you? (hotel hand cream isn’t going to cut it unless you’re the Edition hotels lotion…
  • In case you’re anything like myself and you’ve been “tasting” the world via wine these days – you will definitely want to try a few of these options. If your preference is clean-crafted wine, Scout + Cellar is your go-to. And yes, that’s my name as a consultant because I had to support my habit of not wanting to drink my calories & these wines have a few less!
