As a travel company, the Coronavirus is a powerful punch squarely in the face. In the last few weeks, we've made some difficult decisions, we've taken our gloves off, and we're ready to punch back.
Firstly, to our beloved guests currently booked on an upcoming trip, whether next month or next year, we are not canceling any trips, rather rescheduling them as timely and appropriate, as our community has made it clear that we still want to travel.
This week, we received this note from a Modern Adventure guest: “I just want you to hear from your appreciative travelers that WE ARE HERE. WE WILL BE BACK. When it is safe to travel again, we will support you.”
Thank you for your continued love and support. It is the wind in our sails, and we deeply appreciate it. Using travel as a force for good is needed more than ever, and we are committed to using a principled and purposeful approach to support our communities, at home and around the world.
As you know, many of our trips include chefs and culinary luminaries who are being deeply affected, like our many travel partners around the world. We will continue to work closely with them to ensure that our experiences support their recovery efforts.
Fundamentally, we believe that no matter how long or hard the road ahead is, the future will once again be bright. This means grounding ourselves in the essential truth that this, too, shall pass.
You can count on us to continue to celebrate the people and places that inspire us, to share our love with our community around the world, and to be a source of light. We are here to help you dream about your next adventure because while it may not be as soon as you would like, there is a magical one coming.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out. And please watch this message if you’re currently booked on a Modern Adventure.
With love and light,
Luis Vargas, Founder & CEO
