This year has not been quite what we expected, especially for those of us working in the tourism industry. None of us had the faintest idea of what was to come when we began hearing the news of a strange virus starting to spread in far east Asia. However, as we came into March, it became all too clear how devastating COVID-19 could be for the tourism industry, and our livelihoods.
Nothing had cancelled more flights since the Eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, however, at that point, we were still optimistic. Many of us thought the situation would blow over just like the infamous eruption did and by early summer we would be able to go back to the travelling like it was 2019. But, oh, we were wrong! We did get a much-needed boost in tourism during the summer months even though there were still many travel restrictions in place and always that lingering, lurking thought that a second wave would be inevitable.
