As Christmases come and go and we grow with more memories and experiences, it seems time passes much more quickly. I hear this often from persons of my generation and beyond. For me, perhaps it is that this year has been a very busy one at Craig Travel.
With Christmas in a few days, Roslyn and I (along with our family and all of the staff at Craig Travel) wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May the season bring you peace, happiness, time with family and friends and may you enjoy a healthy 2020.
During this very busy holiday season, it is important that we slow down and reflect on what this special time is really celebrating…the birth of our Savior and the blessings of family life. It is a time to give special thanks for the good fortune bestowed on all of us who live in this wonderful country, where we enjoy peace and unlimited opportunities.
This has been a very busy year at Craig Travel. I have officially retired and the company is now being run by the third Craig generation. Robert is the new President of Craig Travel, while Jennifer is Sales Manager. Together with Courtney (General Manager), Gilda (Operations) and Melanie (Marketing) and all the other staff members, the company is in excellent hands and moving forward with a new resolve to provide the best possible service and exciting travel opportunities. In my role as Chairman, I will continue to enjoy travelling with our groups and bringing my experience in travel planning.
As you may be aware, this year we celebrated 50 years of providing the best travel experiences for thousands of our Canadian guests. There is nothing more rewarding than welcoming old and new friends alike as we set out to discover a new destination. Thanks to all of you for your continued interest and patronage.
2020 will be your opportunity to experience the history, drama, pageantry and excitement of Oberammergau’s Passion Play. This will be the seventh time that we have offered a series of journeys that feature this unique event in Europe. In this series, we have eight unique itineraries throughout Europe, all of which feature this extraordinary event. We have very limited space on some of our departures. For more information, call our office or visit our website here.
In November, 2020, Roslyn and I will be setting off on a true Bucket List Adventure, a Voyage Around Australia, which is sure to please cruisers of all backgrounds. We invite you to join us to discover this great land Downunder – see details here.
In addition, we have a host of other thrilling travel opportunities exploring destinations throughout the world, all of which are outlined in our current brochure and on craigtravel.com.
A special thanks to all who travelled with us this year and for being a part of our travel family and to those new Craig travellers who will join us for the first time in 2020.
Once again, our best wishes for the coming year. May you find happiness, good health and many opportunities to explore our wonderful world.
David Craig, Chairman
