"I travel to be replenished with beauty, for travel makes the beauty of this world seem like a Christmas that never ends."
 — Carew Papritz
 
 
Hello and Happy Holidays!
 
I hope this email finds you well, and that your preparations to welcome family, friends and/or Santa Claus, either in-person or via Zoom, are nearly complete. In the spirit of the holiday season, I would liike to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
 
Red card that says Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
 
Speaking of the New Year, it is truly full of promise! The coronavirus vaccine is now being distributed in the United States and in other countries, and many of us should expect to receive it soon. The vaccine will be the key to traveling safely, and I am confident that we'll all be able to resume our adventures in 2021.
  
Below, you'll find some of the latest articles from WheelchairTravel.org, which I hope you will read & share with your friends on social media.

Best wishes,
— John Morris
