The world keeps spinning and we can only take one day at a time

We find ourselves in a period of considerable uncertainty, with nobody knowing quite what the next steps are or the decisions that will be made. Entire countries, individuals and the tourism industry as a whole are being widely impacted by the measures that have been taken to combat the spread of Covid-19. Those who may have underestimated this impact initially should realize by now that, whilst the world keeps spinning, we can only really take one day at a time.

Outdooractive in 2020 – An optimistic start

2020… what an awesome number for a year! We will not see another one like it until 3030- that is another 1010 years from now!

I think my optimism does not stem just from the magic of the year itself, but also all the new possibilities that Outdooractive has planned both for you and the furtherance of the tourism industry.
