Dear Focus Travelers All—Past, Present and future; Merry Christmas!
What a year 2020 has been! I admit I expected it to drag interminably, with no travel permitted, and very few interactions, but strangely, every time I look up another month has gone by!?! I hope, trust and expect 2021 to be a much better year for all of us! I know all of you are as eager as am I to be able to travel again! World, here we come!!
As I feel sure you all realize, we are not able to hold our annual Focus Travel Club Christmas Lunch this year, nor will we be able to hold our annual Focus Blowout in February. Both gatherings would be too large for these Covid-19 times. I am so sad because I always SO look forward to seeing so many of you! BUT! I WILL be sending out the schedule for 2022 along with the Sneak Peeks in February.
Our March 2020, cruise to Tahiti and French Polynesia was cancelled as we were all ready to check in at Denver’s DIA airport. A huge disappointment, but we were glad not to be stuck far away and unable to get home. The cruise was rescheduled for March of 2021, but that date, too, looks like the virus will still be raging, or at least not sufficiently tamed to allow us to cruise safely. SO! Very happily, our cruise has been moved to March of 2022! Third time charm!
Tumlare (and I) feel sure that our upcoming Fall Foliage tour of New England in late September/early October 2021 will be a go! Happiness! I hope everyone signed up for that tour will send up a cheer! I believe that we can still add a few more to the 21 of us who comprise our group to date. Personally, I can hardly wait to explore Boston, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine again!
To put a delicious icing on our 2021 travel cake, Our Focus Egypt and Jordan cruise/tour November 28 – December 14, 2021, is going to be a travel experience of a lifetime! I have been on the Nile Cruise several times and, believe me, it never pales! Each time I gasp in wonder and see so many things I missed before. This 2021 trip will include Jordan where we will explore Petra, the rose-red city twice as old as time, and a few days in Cairo before we board AmaWaterway’s brand new river cruise ship for our Nile exploration.
I hope you all are safe and well. I am looking forward to sharing travel with many of you in 2021 and 2022. To each and every one of you, I wish a blessed and beautiful holiday season and may your future be filled with health, joy, and Focus Travel Club adventures!
Love and Hugs, Ellie
