I was smiling before I even opened the email. “What is Sob Rock?” read the subject line. The sender was Grammy-winning singer-songwriter John Mayer. Having been a fan of John’s for years now, I knew his sense of humor and was immediately intrigued.
In 1666, a huge fire destroyed St. Paul’s cathedral in London (and half the city with it). Prominent architect Sir Christopher Wren took on the challenge of leading the rebuild. The story goes that one morning, as he visited the job site, he walked among the workers, asking them all the same question: “What are you doing?”
The first said, “I’m cutting this stone.” The second said, “I’m earning three shillings and six pence a day.” And the last one said, “I’m helping Sir Christopher Wren to build this great cathedral.”
Three ways of looking at the same job.
To say that the travel (let alone travel advertising) were hit hard by the pandemic may be the understatement of the year.
With lockdown still very much in effect, tight travel restrictions in place, and millions of people apprehensive about just leaving the house, it’s no wonder international arrivals are estimated to have dropped upwards of 80% in 2020.
