This is not the phone call I thought we were going to have.  I am way more on the, “We are all gonna die” side of Corona Virus mentality than Richard is.  I thought he was sheltering in his Hobbit Hole as much as our family it.  He’s not!  This conversation was really helpful for me to hear and encourage me to mask up and GET OUT THERE.

I text Richard Earls, Publisher of Travel Research Online,”Pick up the phone, I’m calling and I’ll probably record it…”  Apparently, Richard is a gambler.  He picked up, rolled with it and gave me permission to publish it on the internet.

The goal of my conversation was to talk about hesitations and past barriers to travel. I then wanted to role it into a conversation about motivations to travel.  As it turns out, Richard is always ready to travel and always motivated to find his friends around the world.

We also talk briefly about the return of travel.  Where? When? What will come back first and what is the catalyst we are waiting for.

Enjoy this episode of randomly recorded candid conversation between a minion and a travel industry giant.

Thank you Richard for your sense of adventure and for answering my call.
