The “looking forward to” is an option – By Helga Stina

Many of us are in shock due to this horrible virus attacking us all around the world. It´s an unprecedented situation and we are all trying to figure out how to function in this changed world.

This is of course devastating and challenging in many ways for various reasons.

One – People are afraid and insecure and when that is the case people make strange decisions like buying all toilet paper rolls possible in every shop.

Two – Businesses stop with people losing their jobs making future planning difficult and scary.

Three – People have to reshape their daily lives when staying home all day, working, homeschooling their children and use different methods in shopping and providing for themselves.

Four – For the travel enthusiasts. It is difficult to plan ahead as it is difficult to know when this crisis is over.

But there is a positive side

As I am working in tourism thinking out of the box is important at these challenging times.

What I always enjoy the most when working with my clients is to use a good time to plan ahead.

The focus is on making the Iceland trip an unforgettable one, where you connect to the Icelanders, experience hidden gems, extraordinary scenery and the feeling of Iceland.

My aim in my company is always to connect people and offer authentic trips.

“Iceland has been a bucket list destination for me since I was really young. My husband and I finally decided to take the plunge this year and visit with some of our friends. I knew trying to arrange my own travel plan would be quite time consuming and I frankly did not know where to start. We called upon Helgastina to help us and it was the best decision we made. She took care of everything. All we had to do was choose accommodation from a list of recommendations she provided.

We were provided with a complete guide for day-to-day activites for every area/region we were in. She also was spot on with our request of 50% “touristy” activities and 50% relaxing/quieter activities. We had a wonderful trip. I will definitely be planning another trip in the future to explore more of Iceland.

Thank you again Iceland Unwrapped for such a wonderful vacation” (Thandi Storey – Traveling in Iceland in the summer of 2019)

The looking forward to is very important and especially in the time of being stuck home and not able to make the travel dreams come true at the moment.

So in these strange times, I would like to invite you to look at Iceland as a destination in August, September and October 2020…or whenever fits your agenda.

Starting a conversation about your dream trip is important and when you work with a personal travel planner like myself, the playing with ideas, looking at possibilities and looking forward to will make your trip even more enjoyable.

If you would like to see how it works or what the focus of Iceland Unwrapped is please don´t hesitate to contact me to schedule a call. It doesn´t matter if you are  thinking of traveling in 2020 or in 2021. Starting to dream and plan is a wonderful possibility.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Keep dreaming.
