Resuming Travel: Status and Prospects
A Zoom Talk by Travel Advisor Alexandra Wisotsky '93 (pictured above)
The expansion of vaccinations is opening up possibilities for travel. Is it too early to make reservations? Are there advantages to booking now? What are the opportunities and risks? What health and safety precautions are being taken? Do I need a vaccine passport? What is going on with cruising? Should I count out certain areas of the globe for this year? Do travel agents even exist anymore?
These questions and more will be addressed by Alexandra Wisotsky ’93. Alexandra will provide information on what travel looks like in a pandemic and post-pandemic world.
Alex’s first job after Oberlin was as a travel agent in Tel Aviv, Israel, where she booked large conferences for thousands of people from around the globe. After a year working in Israel, Alex went on to earn law degrees, and as an attorney, she worked for various local and national non-profit legal organizations for close to 15 years. Now a “recovering lawyer,” she has spent nearly 6 years working as a travel advisor with Polka Dot Bow Adventures, a small, woman-owned, DC-based travel agency. Alex specializes in a wide variety of vacation packages. She holds certifications as an autism travel specialist, special needs travel advocate, and accredited cruise counselor.
