Through our virtual traveler communities, I had the chance to talk and try to discuss with Valeria as what she believes the future of “traveler professionals” will be. Here is her answer about some of my questions:
- How do you believe the travel industry is going to be affected post the coronavirus?
- Do you believe everything will go back to normal?
- Do you think that the world is going to change and this will impact the leisure travel forever?
- If so, what kind of changes you expect? What do you think those changes will be?
“This pandemic has turned the world upside down. Things that we took for granted don’t exist anymore. I also believe that traveling as we used to know will no longer be the same after Coronavirus.
I am afraid that many tourist destinations, many hotels, restaurants and tour operators will not survive this pandemic and the economic consequences of it. In the end, a completely new offer for travelers will gradually build up. But I think there is something good about this pandemic too. It shows us how fragile our lives are. It shows us what is really important. Family, health, freedom. It shows us the things that make us really happy – because now we lack them.
One day the world will be fine again and I hope people have not forgotten what this pandemic showed us: The really important things in life. It is not material things. It’s the moments when we were the most happy. The moments when we did all the things that made us joyful. The moments when we were with our loved ones”.
- What are your favorite pastimes during the self-isolation?
- Where do you see yourself and your projects post-Coronavirus?
“After this pandemic, I will only do things that really make me happy. I won’t waste any more time because I know how precious it is. And I hope people do the same.
During the quarantine, I try to be as productive as possible. That’s not always easy. I read travel guides, I am working on my travel blog, I am looking for inspiration for upcoming road trips and prepare for my next trips – hope dies last ! “.
