Tell us a little bit about what it’s been like being a travel agent over the past few weeks?
I have been a travel agent for five years and I have never experienced such stress as I did the week of March 10. That is when it peaked for me. After four long days of answering emails, filling out forms, keeping up with ever changing cancellation policies and holding on the phone for hours, I had to make myself step away from my computer and take a break. It was wreaking havoc on my shoulders and neck. In the past, many of my friends have told me “You have the best job!”, and I would agree with them, but this whole Covid-19 outbreak brought out the worst aspects of my career.
