In our 30 years of working in travel we can honestly say the tsunami-like speed, breadth and depth of this latest global Covid-19 virus is like nothing else we have ever experienced and the industry is being pushed to its limits. Week five of lock down nearly over and like everyone else we are at home toiling the earth with a frenzied determination to make sense of it all.
As for the "other side" - it will come but it will be different in mindset and the concept of travel a definite privilege. We hope that everyone will travel with a more social and responsible conscience which will let this magnificent globe of ours continue to heal and the concept of the Midlife Leap where you can can travel and contribute has never been more relavant.
So, our message is simple ' keep the dream alive and have something to look forward to after lockdown.'
For our current MidLife teams who are currently on “pause’' – remember we are ready to mobilise should there be a sniff of freedom and we can postpone dates - we have enormous flexibility.
As for our future MidLifers - we need you more than ever to travel and contribute...especially now when so many communities and projects who rely on volunteers are hurting. Just so you know we are accepting bookings BUT not asking for any deposits until we know how this all unfolds. Get your names on our 'wish to leap' lists early, limited numbers per departure and we predict a surge as everyone will want to travel with a company who has reliable and influential ground operators and who can financially protect your booking. All you need to do is place a normal booking via our website and we will be in touch. Simple.
I also want to take this opportunity to offer our heartfelt gratitude for your continued support. We have received some lovely messages, so thank you. We are here for the long haul and I have reassured our overseas communities that MidLifers will be returning as soon as they are able. We are resilient to our core.
Please get in touch we are here for now and always.
Stay well and safe,
