thing I’ll do is a trip in Europe to see my relatives and
friends and enjoy good food and french wine with them.
Chief Officer Cargo
first thing that comes to mind is that I look forward to traveling
for pleasure again. I have traveled during the pandemic - am flying
to the Pacific Northwest tomorrow in fact - but only for essential
business travel. While I am already fully vaccinated, so the threat
is limited, I still conduct myself with the same protocols as if I
weren't. I look forward to a time when we don't have to wonder so
greatly about our fellow travelers and others can worry less about
But I also hope that many of the lessons
of this period might outlive the pandemic. Those grocery store clerks,
delivery people and so many other of our fellow citizens have always
been "essential" whether many knew it or not. Perhaps we
can continue treating everyone with the same respect they may have
received when they were delivering groceries to our dependent loved
Perhaps all that time at home with loved
ones can be cherished as the extraordinarily rare opportunity to see
more of our kids than we typically did during the daytime and something
of those routines might have taken hold. And yes, certainly losing
access to just being able to congregate with friends for coffee or
something stronger will seem sweeter than ever.
This period has been particularly hard
on artists whose careers depended very largely on live performances.
Here in Austin, the crisis will be prolonged because so many music
clubs went under during the period and the valuable real estate has
been snatched up by vultures, who will develop luxury condos in their
place. I can't wait to go to the clubs again to support musicians
and other artists but I also know that I'll likely be hosting a lot
more performances in my own living room in a coordinated attempt with
like-minded people to backfill as much lost performance capacity with
"house concerts" until enough exists for our artist friends
to make a living again.

The first thing I will do is to take
an airplane and visit my top customers.
My last business trip was last year
in spring to India for the Air Cargo India. I came back and soon
after the lockdown sanctions started.
As an alternate, it’s good to
have the video chats and I have to say the pandemic forced us to
push the digitalization forward (Microsoft 365 cloud, new reservation
system COS, Power BI).
But in our small industry it’s
essential to meet, to brainstorm, share ideas and to develop business.
It is still the best way to do it “face to face.”
I bet my last pence the first industry
event after the majority of us will be vaccinated is going to be

my family. All of us are stuck in the house. The kids are doing

out. We would love to travel as a family together again.

all is clear I will gather my whole family including my brother
from LA, whom I haven’t seen for so long, go to a local Oberurseler
Italian restaurant, enjoy good food and red wine, be very close
to each other, and hug without the fear of deadly infection.
Then I will start planning our ATC

customers, colleagues and friends. Long time no see! A perfect opportunity
to finally network again after a long, dry spell . . .

answer the question, it’s simple: travel. I will travel to
some place my partner and I would like to go to and just relax and
be outdoors a lot.
It will likely be to Europe and later
to the Caribbean.
I need it to relax and just be grateful
for life left to still enjoy.

I will take my lovely wife Kim out

fully vaccinated people, order a glass of wine and toast our good
fortune in having survived this awful pandemic. Life is precious,
fragile, and should be enjoyed now more than ever!
I want to travel internationally again!
First destination . . . the Dead Sea to spa with friends.
It’s great to be able to see
the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, we will all be able
to get on with life. Human interaction and developing the positives
that the Covid-19 episode has shown us will be the key things that
I will be focusing on. I am just hoping that sanity will prevail
and folks would not feel too empowered and over confident. We
should all be cognizant of the fact that the virus is still mutating
and can do a lot of further damage if we are not careful. So no
matter how free we will feel, we should all start enjoying life
within the confinement of caution.

I don’t think it will be like
a light switch, I think restrictions will ease on a continuum, on
that note I’ve tried already to have a few outside playdates
for the kids and had a meal here or there outdoors.
I will try to pace myself and ultimately
the biggest goal will be to travel safely to see my parents.

shall travel far and large. Lots of stops and lots of meals out in
every corner of the earth. And walk and smile to every person I meet
on my way, without shying away and checking their pace. Swim in a
swimming pool and invite many friends for dinner, eat and drink without
thinking at the scale. Let us hope they hurry up with the vaccines.

I doubt it will be very soon, once I can I will first of all hug my
family and friends thoroughly. That is the one thing I miss most.
We will meet for dinner altogether in a nice place and have somebody
cook for us instead of having to do it ourselves. It's the little
every day things I miss most.
of course as soon as possible again I will buy a ticket to NY and
come to see my dear friends.
