Bye then!

The holidays are officially over, and it's time to strap in for an intense 2020. As if those weeks in your childhood bedroom weren't enough to make you want to book a vacation, in the first few days of the year we've seen the bone-chilling burning of Australia, a devastating earthquake in Puerto Rico, an airstrike on Iran, and Harry and Meghan's resignation from the British royal family. The only silver lining is that Rihanna dropped a new mascara (where's R9, though?)...and that there are some insanely good travel deals right now. Book a trip to help with your compassion fatigue.
