Hello lovely Italian Fix family,
Bianca here. This isn’t a “Letter from the CEO” or “Motivational Help List.”
It’s not an overly optimistic feel-good piece — we just don’t have the stomach for that at the moment.
Keep reading for something way more personal: A day in the life of someone living in Italy right now.
It’s been a gut twisting few weeks as I’ve watched the entire travel industry screech to an abrupt halt.
For my own company, and so many of the people I know, it feels like we’ve been dragged behind a team of horses at a chuckwagon race.
I’d be lying if I said things are all peaches and cream over here.
With my team in Italy under quarantine, with travel restrictions looming until who knows when, it’s all pretty WTF.
I’m sure you have heard by now that the Italian government has placed their citizens under a nationwide quarantine. This is very somber news.
I have an insider look into this because my team, my family, and all of our Italy-based friends are directly affected by these measures right now.
We’ve been able to talk to them, text, get photos, and hear the news on the ground in real time.
