Tauck Zoom Reunion
On Monday I participated in a Zoom reunion meeting initiated by our tour director from last year's ESW tour. She mentioned that some of the directors were holding these meetings to let us touch base with each other and I'm sure to keep our interest in Tauck alive. It was interesting hearing from her. She's from the UK and living in Tuscany. She shared with us what it has been like in Italy with the pandemic. Her daughter-in-law got the virus (she thinks in the elevator from people in her building who were sick) but is OK now. Another son was planning on returning to Italy from Australia and had given notice at his job but needed to change his plans when travel was suspended.
While Europeans can travel between countries, they have not yet opened to anyone coming from the US. Since she is anxious to get back to work, she is waiting to see when that will change.
Among the tour members participating everyone was doing well. We were able to see the men with long hair due to living in areas where barbershops have just opened by appointment only. Some are planning on US travel and most are hoping for a better travel year in 2021.
It was interesting to see how people in different part so the country are reacting to the pandemic in very different ways. Tour members from the SF Bay area, NJ, Hawaii and NE are treating this much more seriously than those in the south and southwest.
Has anyone else been invited to a Zoom reunion?
