We are thrilled to bring you our exciting Autumn edition of Dream Escape magazine. I am also very pleased to report that the UK and Ireland are welcoming guests from around the world. Although it has been challenging to navigate the ever-changing COVID testing rules, we are successfully providing guests with the wonderful and long-awaited travel experiences they have been anticipating for so long. Increasingly we are becoming more mobile, curious and inquisitive once again. Holly and I will be visiting the delayed Chelsea Flower Show later in September, and meeting up with friends, colleagues and partners to discuss the last 18 months and create some exciting plans for 2022 and beyond. We are all trying to make up for lost time. Importantly, we have found that planning travel well ahead of time is essential at the moment. If you do want to lock in a much-needed visit to the UK or Ireland, my advice is to start the process as soon as you are able. I hope you enjoy this inspirational issue.
