From the Desk of Heather Christopher: November 2020 Updates

Hey friends!

I hope the start to the 1100th month of this year was brighter than the last 1099 😉 This has been a big month for me – I have officially flown for the first time in months for an HCTC Team trip to St. Lucia. YOU GUYS! I missed my normal pre-flight jitters, my tornado of clothes all over the bed for packing, making chitchat with my neighbor in flight (yes, I’m definitely that kind of person), and I really missed meeting kind people in new places, the first vacation cheers and finally getting to see one of my colleagues, Meg! I put together a blog post to share all the details of what it is like traveling during these times that you can check out here!

I would also like to take a moment to express my gratitude for you being here and supporting HCTC – especially through this year. We love what we do and thankful for the opportunity to be trusted with your vacations. Also, if we have spoken in the last few weeks, thank you helping me shake off my rust 😉

In other news, I am sharing a blog post (written by yours truly) and two articles to help continue to inform you and guide you in traveling. Have specific questions you want to chat about? We are just an email or phone call away. 

I guest blogged on A Foodie Stays Fit blog highlighting flying in 2020 and the COVID eraYou can check it out here.
Where can Americans travel right now? You can find a guide by AFAR here. The CDC is also sharing travel recommendations in this article
