Updates from our Chief Frog
Dear clients and friends,
We miss you! Working with you on future travel plans and reminiscing on trips already taken took up such important space in our lives. I speak for everyone at Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters in saying that we hope you are doing alright and finding comfort in your current surroundings.
Comfort, for me, has always been found in the unearthing of things not yet discovered. These experiences range from a stroll down a meandering street in a European village to exploring a place on the Colombian coast that even my Colombian relatives hadn’t heard of (true story). These days, I am finding comfort in looking at my old photos, sharing travel adventure stories with my kids, and even connecting with people I met in my travels long ago (look for my travelogue soon on recently reconnecting with Tim, a New Zealand friend who in 1993 took me around the entire South Island on his motorcycle). I hope you, too, are finding comfort in the nostalgic bits and pieces collected from your past adventures.
Comfort is also found in steadily forging ahead with the daily needs of the business I have treasured these last 26 years. What’s been happening in a travel business when no one is traveling? Good things…sort of. While we continue to process trip cancellations and manage the daily challenges of everchanging airline and supplier rules – we have also booked a handful of new trips for 2021. In addition, we are available between 10-4 Monday-Friday, to sell travel gear and send gifts to friends and family. Turns out that many of the items we carry translate well to daily life (backpacks, wallets, compression socks, handbags…to name a few) so please give us a call if you are interested in making a purchase or learning more about any of the products we offer.
To assist you in understanding what we carry, we are preparing to launch an online store. Conceptualizing a store under these circumstances has been challenging because I want it to reflect who we are as a business- the essence of which is high touch and personal. It is imperative to me that the online store conveys our passion for travel and the care we take when choosing the items that we sell. Ultimately, our online presence will be an extension of our knowledgeable travel specialists and will enable us to best assist you in finding the right products to fit your lifestyle. We will continue to offer curbside pickup and are happy to ship.
Lastly, we do plan to start rolling out some travel suggestions to get you thinking towards future getaways. Surely there will come a time when we are freer to move around. So, find comfort in knowing that when that time comes, we will be ready to get you where you want to go. In the meantime, be safe, be well, and be dreaming of travel.
