#TogetherAtHome We Said Go Travel News April 2020


April News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:

I hope you and your loved ones are #togetherathome and healthy. COVID-19 has impacted our countries, our communities, our companies and every part of our planet.

Spring is here in Los Angeles

This was a very unusual Passover. My family met on ZOOM with 17 screens. If you want more Passover in your life, I highly recommend Stephen Wise Temple’s virtual first night seder (it is only 30min) and the absolutely phenomenal Saturday Night Seder which was also a fundraiser to benefit the CDC Foundation’s Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund.

To me the absolutely best part was Ben Platt singing at 12:05! Make sure to check out his album, Sing to Me Instead!

I know that you might have a bit of CABIN FEVER as myself and the entire world do at this point, so I wanted to share my favorite scene from Muppet Treasure Island that we used to watch in the Kids Club when I worked on cruise ships!

While I miss traveling, I know that I need to stay home and wait until it is safe to wander again around our world. I am sharing my past favorite trips for inspiration in my new series, Tell Me More About:
