Dear Curious Traveler,
Here at Context, our ultimate aim is to live up to our name. To give something “Context” is to connect the dots between eras, geographies, and cultures; it's to weave us all together as part of a larger, shared narrative.
It’s that very shared narrative, in fact, that’s at the nexus of the current coronavirus crisis. Experiencing the spread of COVID-19 and witnessing the impact it has had on your travel plans, our scholar’s livelihoods, and the lives of our staff (many of whom are currently managing through mandatory quarantines) have been sobering, to say the least. Yet, we believe that the answer isn’t to travel less: it’s to travel differently.
There's no one solution for travelers trying to navigate today’s situation, and our collective circumstances are changing daily. But, we’re firm proponents of the fact that any type of travel—be it abroad, domestic, or armchair—is the best form of education. We're also optimistic believers that, once we're all healthy and safe, travel will return with gusto. To that end, we're hard at work building experiences to keep the windows of the world open, both now and in the future:
Now more than ever, developing a shared understanding of the world around us and recognizing our role in the broader community is critical in being a curious traveler—and a responsible global citizen. We wish you health and understanding, in any form that your travel takes.
We’re all in this together.
