I scrolled through this year's tours by date and availability and was surprised at the large number of tours that had plenty of space still available. I remember when tours were first made available after the pause due to covid and people could not register fast enough! I was one of them. I signed up for 2 tours because I figured I had missed one with the pandemic.
I am registered for a tour this spring, but I don't feel the same pressure that I did a year ago. I told my sister that "I was cutting back on travel this year." She laughed and asked me to tell her about the trips I had planned. I told her about trips in February, April, May, June, Sept and November. Okay, well maybe I'm not really cutting back on travel this year, but somehow it feels more relaxed.
Are there a lot of people that have been holding off registering for RS tours, is demand down, or is this really a more typical pre-covid pattern?
