From our generations to yours

REFLECTING

On the journey ahead

Dear Traveler,

I write to you during this extraordinary time, for the world as a whole and for those of us who love to travel.  It was also Earth Month in April, as people around the globe confront this pandemic, we realize more than ever how connected we are, to each other and to our planet. It is also so edifying to see ways our planet is healing, as we all pause our activities – our air is cleaner in most cities, dolphins have returned to the canals in Venice and, for the first time in 40 years, one can see from Punjab to the Himalayas. 

 

On behalf of our family as well as all the team members of TTC’s family of brands, I send you and your loved ones wishes for safety and health. We also wish to express our deepest gratitude to the many who are working as first responders through this crisis, in hospitals and clinics around the globe, as well as those working in supermarkets, transportation, education and all the essential services that allow us to care for one another.  Your work, bravery, and dedication is appreciated now, more than ever.

 

For so many of the rest of us, the best we can do at this point is to shelter in place. Naturally, this has meant putting our travel plans on hold, as the safety and wellbeing of our guests is, and always will be, our highest priority.  Still, this is  disappointing for all of us, as these travel plans have often been years in the making.  As travelers, we are inclined to be active, pursue adventures, explore the world and impact it in a positive way, and it is difficult to feel as though we are having an impact by staying home. Yet, as each of us tries to slow the spread of this virus, it is what we must do. 

 

For everyone at TTC, this crisis comes at a poignant time, in the midst of commemorating the 100th anniversary of our founding in 1920.  Needless to say, this is not how we envisioned celebrating.  Being in the travel business for a full century, however, has taught us many lessons, chief among these being to always take the long term view.  When navigating challenging times I quote the words my father, Stanley Tollman, who is 89 years old and serves as Chairman of TTC, often says to me. They are words that he, in turn, is passing on from his father and TTC’s founder, Solomon Tollman, who was, in turn, quoting the wise and true words uttered by his namesake, King Solomon: This too shall pass.

 

And so it shall.  There will come a time, hopefully in the near future, when the gates of travel will open again, perhaps first for domestic and then for international travel.  When they do, there will be a great deal of additional healing to be done around the world, for the many who have had their lives and livelihoods upended by this virus.  In this process of restoring our world, I believe that responsible and conscientious travel will play an essential role.  So many people and families around the globe make their living through the travel and service industry.  Just as they are now suffering the secondary impact of this pandemic, so will there be secondary responders – travelers, such as you and me. We will be the ones who return to dine in their restaurants, stay in their hotels, and visit their sights.  We will be doing what travel does best: connecting people around the world.

 

Both TTC and The TreadRight Foundation exist to make travel personal and make travel matter.  Looking to the future of travel, I believe both of these will become even more important.  As travelers, we will return strengthen the bonds that connect us to people all over the world, and travel will matter more than ever.  

 

For the time being, we wish you and yours health and safety.  When that time comes, we look forward to doing what we love to do – offering you the most amazing travel experiences to be found throughout the world.
