#SafeAtHome We Said Go Travel News March 2020


March News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:

I hope you and your family are #safeathome together and staying healthy. These past weeks have been challenging and have reminded me of being in New York City after September 11 when the travel company I worked for, Renaissance Cruises, went bankrupt in 8 days. I was disappointed to be out of work but felt grateful that I was alive. I was not sure when we would travel again but it did happen that we returned to traveling!

The coronavirus outbreak has impacted individuals, families, our communities, companies, schools, universities and every country on our planet. I know that birthday parties, weddings, proms and graduations have been cancelled, that people could not attend family funerals and that celebrating Passover and Easter will be very different around our planet this Spring.

While I miss traveling, I know that I need to stay home and wait until it is safe to wander again around our world. I wanted to share some recent articles and past trips for inspiration.

To think is easy; to act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult of all.


We can’t control the wind, be we can always adjust the sails.
