Distance Lends Enchantment to the View

Published on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 2:08 PM

The past few weeks have proven a classic adage to be true – time moves fast. It felt like hardly any time passed between when we were diligently preparing for our spring guests to depart on the Journey of a lifetime, and when we were repatriating the last of our guests from abroad, all of whom have safely returned home. With news shifting by the hour, it is easy to feel left behind. Although the prospect of future travel may feel distant, perspective has taught us that this too shall pass, and skies will once again be clear. And when they are, we will be here, as we have been for the past 40 years – ready to make exceptional travel plans, so you can make unforgettable memories.

Our team's inspiration to dedicate our careers to travel came from the profound impacts that travel has had in our own personal lives when we choose to see the very best in people. From the staggering heights of the Cologne Cathedral, to the traditional talent of the Magyar cowboys on the Hungarian Puszta, the world we travel is filled with constant reminders of what we are all capable of, and how resilient we truly are. Regardless of our location, nationality, spirituality, or way of life, we are all in this together.

As we all do our part to help our family, friends and communities navigate these changing times, we will continue to feed your sense of wonder by helping you explore destinations, experience cultures, enjoy authentic food, and engage with each other in our shared love of travel – from home – after all, travel is a state-of-mind as much as it is a physical experience. Join us in our newsletter, the Journey Log, as well as on social media, where we will be sharing inspiring travel experiences to satisfy your wanderlust.

Let’s cook the most delectable international dishes together, virtually tour world-famous museums, daydream about worlds reaching far beyond our current walls, and the amazing people that we will meet along the way. Let us know where we’re going together, and we’ll take care of the rest.


Wishing you the best of health and warmest regards,

The entire team at Journeys by Van Dyke
