I just have to brag on my friend Kim, who posts on this Forum (Kim from Oklahoma.) We're in a travel group together here in the Tulsa area. One of our favorite meetings each year is the one where Kim brings her "this year's" tour scrapbook.
For 2020, Kim and hubby were booked on a RS Best of South England tour, and also had made arrangements to spend time in the Cotswolds, and then return to London to see their beloved St Louis Cardinals play baseball. Yes, in London.
Well, obviously, this year's tour didn't happen, but that didn't stop her! Nope, our girl showed up at Saturday's meeting with a great scrapbook for the 2020 "tour that didn't happen."
Plane reservations, RS tour itinerary, photos of all the places the tour "would have" gone, even photos of rooms in the first and last hotels, as well as a great picture of the guide they would have had.
And more of course: the cottage in Chipping Camden, receipts and seating chart for the ball games... All done with wit, but of course, a bit of sadness. Luckily, the wit predominated.
So how about it, folks? Those of you who are craft-y or clever, or just want to find some fun in this disappointing time - give it a try. If nothing else, it will whet your appetite for more travel, and give you a reason to look to the future.
