21 months later and we ain't outa the woods yet.
One thing I’ve learned about travel is that it can be incredibly educational… if you actually let it.
I remember defying gravity encased in a long titanium-steel tube weighing 90,000 pounds cruising at an altitude of 30,000 feet shoehorned into my pocket-sized seat with a couple hundred of my closest strangers.
The global pandemic we're now living through has disrupted our lives in so many ways. Zoom meetings, livestream concerts, online classes and other virtual realities are just some of the many new intrusions into our daily existence. But when it comes to travel, "virtual" is really nothing new at all. In fact, the original virtual travel experience has been with us for centuries.
