It’s hard to believe that over six months have passed since the pandemic hit Europe. I’m sure, like me, you hoped that it would quickly pass and that we’d all be travelling again by now. The travel industry has been brought to its knees, and the World Travel & Tourism Council has announced that up to three million tourism jobs in the UK alone could be lost.
