In this moment when it feels like everything around us is at a standstill, one thing we know - without question and with our whole hearts - is that dreaming doesn't stop.
Dreaming invites us to explore the memories waiting for us...dreams of standing at the footsteps of the pyramids, breathing in pure wonder...sailing on the world's rivers, awestruck by clifftop castles, hillside vineyards and ancient fairytale villages passing by...walking cobblestones less travelled to explore the unknown...venturing from crags to caverns and volcanoes to valleys to find sun-washed cities and moonlit bays.
So, while the world awaits better, brighter days, let's rise together and dream about them. Roam destinations from your recliner. Enjoy armchair adventures. Spend a few minutes sofa sightseeing.
Go ahead. Let your mind wander. Let's make the most of this layover, together.
For passionate globetrotters like us, travel is essential. While “Plan A” may have been waylaid and “Plan B” postponed, we look forward to moving to “Plan See.” In the meantime, we’re helping you see – and spend a moment with – some friendly faces from our Avalon Waterways crew as they share a little of their "layover lives” with you.
After you’ve watched each video, letting your mind wander across the globe with some friends from Avalon, maybe you will be inspired to picture yourself on the world’s waterways with us.
