I wish this situation would happen more often! Matthew Kondrup, Matty K Travel Group, started texting me that he was getting on a plane to the Dominican Republic and would check in when he landed. Did I want a interview live on location!? Of course I did!
Now, this means that the internet and phone signal might lag and have some audio snafus but it is worth the risk to try to record! After his meeting Matty had 17 mins before he left for the airport so we connected, recorded and published. In the background you will hear the sounds of fun, frothy frappe drinks being made by the pool bar and generally the sound of NORMAL. Normal, at a premium all-inclusive resort like the Hyatt Zilara sounds amazing.
I have been REALLY hesitant to book any trips for clients or myself. I haven't even planned out my own family vacation or 40th birthday that is coming up quick. This phone call was a refreshing reminder that there are places to travel, covid tests available with quick turn arounds and resorts making TREMENDOUS efforts to win back tourism through safety and cleaning measures.
Here is our interview live from the DR yesterday, Oct. 14th, 2020.
Thank you Matty for thinking of me. I hope that everyone can envision themselves at these properties and bring some tourism back to the DR and Mexico! #dominicanrepublic #dr #travelagent #podcastguest
