Traveling During the Covid19 Pandemic Saint Lucia

Travel & tourism account for 1 in 10 jobs worldwide. 🌎 I am that 1 out of 10. 🙋🏼‍♀️

I do know that ALOT of people are facing work challenges at the moment, especially small businesses.

In March, the travel/tourism industry came to a screeching halt. Borders closed, planes stopped flying, cruises were cancelled. I have spent the last 7 months unraveling people’s travel dreams, destination weddings, honeymoons, high school graduation trips, college graduation trips, family trips 2 years in the makings, milestone birthday and anniversary trips💔. 

While of course it’s not life or death~there has been a lot of loss. There is some hope on the horizon❤️. 

Mexico has started welcoming visitors; Jamaica is welcoming visitors; Aruba is welcoming visitors; Saint Lucia is welcoming visitors, Dominican Republic is welcoming visitors. 

I am starting to re-book travel✈️ . Safely protocols and plans are being put in place👐.

I am traveling to Saint Lucia this week to learn about these protocols. While the travel experience looks a little different it has been an awesome experience so far!!
