When we see natural disasters occurring, we often feel helpless.
Take for example the wildfires in British Columbia this summer, or hurricane Maria that devastated Puerto Rico in 2017.
What can we do?
Once the immediate threat has passed and the community has had a chance to rally and recover one of the things we as outsiders can do to help, is visit. An injection of new money helps to sustain jobs and provide businesses with the chance to rebuild.
Tourism Victoria is going through a re-branding process. Their new slogan “Oceans apart from Ordinary” focuses on their natural assets.
Victoria is a very convenient WestJet flight from Brandon. On sale you’ll find flights under $400. The same can be said about numerous British Columbia cities.
Puerto Rico requires more than a weekend holiday and might be best used as a cruise port right now. Sale flights can often be found from Winnipeg at that $500 mark. Popular cruise lines that are using Puerto Rico in the fall of 2018 include Royal Caribbean, Disney and Carnival.
